Check out this GoPro footage of two kids getting their season passes temporarily pulled at Holiday Valley Resort in New York. Do you think they were in the wrong?
It seems like the whole incident could have been avoided if the trail was closed properly. They also stopped when the patrollers flagged them down, which should have been a clear sign to ski patrol that they they weren’t trying to break the rules.
The captions say that the kids got their passes back, and the manager of the hill stated that they “shouldn’t have had their passes taken.” Good.
We can all appreciate the incredible work that ski patrol puts in to keep us all safe, but unjust discipline like this example can leave some with a bad taste in their mouth.
No matter what side you land on- Remember to thank a ski patroller the next time you see one. They keep all of us safe every day we’re on the slopes.
