If there's anything that helmet cams have proven they're good for this year it's capturing on mountain confrontation/douchebagery. We have another winner. Perhaps not as epic as the "Snowbasin Ski Patroller," but nonetheless funny. The scenario: powder day at Alta and the Wildcat Lift (a double). Mr. POV is trying to access the singles line (although it looks like he's trying to snake the entire line). Angry Alta enforcer steps out of the regular line and lays down a top-sheet stomp. Who wins? In reality, neither of them...but I kinda feel like we all won.

VIDEO: Alta Powder Panic Lift Line Confrontation | Hero Enforcer or Psycho? - VIDEO BACK UP

    You say, “if you lay your hands on me one more time” like it’s a threat. In retrospect what were you going to do? Call your mom and tell her some guy was being a big meanie to you?

    Either way this video is awesome because you sound like such a little girl in it. For a second I thought you were going to break down and cry.

    no friends on powder days. that man was just making a good move. if agro man was smart he woulda been doing the same thing

    Can’t we all agree that neither of them should breed. An asshole is an asshole whether they’re cutting in line or old enough to know better. A grown ass man once tried to fight my friend in front of his kid for cutting him off on the High T… Can’t we all just be a little less “agro” brobrahhhhhh. Fuckin beaters all around.

    Pleasantly surprised by the entertainment value presented. Loads of ego – obviously, no backbones – no fight?, and also a pretty poor life-line set-up created for better watching than you find on most t.v. shows.

    Should have ignored the douchebag aggro man and just kept moving. you just happened to be the one he picked on out of that whole group of people who were in that line with you

    the cutter was wrong no doubt about it, but if “old tyme local” head butted me I’d beat the living fucking shit out of him. I have been convicted of assault, watch out who you physically provoke anywhere!

    Sorry guys, video deleted per request out of respect for the Ski Area Involved.

    Not trying to hide my actions. Clearly I got in a short-cut line that is okay on a average day, but not on a powder day.

    I got called out by someone who got WAY too upset, I stood my ground out of ignorance, guy stomped on my topsheets (not a big deal, I ski like a beater so they already were scratched) and headbutted me with a few elbows thrown in.

    Okay so I’m in the wrong and so is the other dude. Get over it. Didn’t post my video here anyway as Mitch stated earlier. Meant to share it with my TGR Buddies who also gave me shit for it but in the end realized that this guys conduct was over the top.

    Let’s not forget that getting physical with people doing a sport we love over a debate on line etiquette is downright silly. Hope we all learned a lesson.

    Bullies will be bullies in real life and on the interwebz. Some people will try and snake the line on a powder day. Internet trolls will follow up to comments like this with “go home, you beater!” Good thing I already am home, even if it’s full of naysayers that excise swift judgment as if they’ve never taken a shortcut.
