I hate it when people cluelessly stand in front of the entrance to the lift lines. Just get out of the way and catch up with your friends on the side.

As a local here in South Lake Tahoe, I appreciate the money and attention we get from the tourists who come to enjoy our beautiful lake and skiing. But honestly, do you leave your common sense at home? You delay lift lines with clueless acts like blocking the lines, letting empty chairs go by and not paying attention. Stop acting like like you are the only ones on the hill and more like the locals if you want courtesy and respect. We are here to enjoy everything like you are.

I agree that there needs to be much more awareness about common courtesy on the lifts lines. I am tired of people who wait right next to the loading area. The worst seem to be parents with their young kids. They let chairs go by while they herd the kids together. In the meantime everyone behind them waits. Not only are they rude to everyone else but they are showing a poor example to the kids.

It seems that boarders have a blind spot when they are riding and they assume everyone else should look out for them. Seriously I wish the resorts would do more to remind everyone, skiers and boarders alike to keep their head and view active.

While it sometimes seems the kids are the problem, I have learned from observation that more often than not, it is the adults/parents that are the root of the problems. They are so focused on herding the kids and attending to them they ignore all that is going on around them including letting empty chairs go by, blocking the path to the lift and allowing their precious little darlings force others to wait. PARENTS...many of us are HERE TO SKI/BOARD! Making us wait while you show your children how you disrespect others just sets a bad example as well as create frustration to us that have come to get the most out of our day.
