Lead, follow, or get out of the way!

When coming off a ski lift, certain rules of etiquette apply.

The most important one is to get out of the way so the people coming off the chairlift behind you do not slam into you. This holds especially true when a snowboarder is in the chair behind you, as the snowboarder, being secured to his board by a single binding, cannot steer or stop as effectively as a skier until he has had a chance to secure the second binding, and will usually come off the ramp in a straight line.

Therefore, do not congregate at the bottom of the ramp. Do not hold a conclave. Do not wait for your friends. If you have kids, you are responsible for making sure they do not stay at the bottom of the ramp. MOVE.

If you are a snowboarder, go ahead and slam into these stupid skiers. They shouldn't be assembling at the bottom of the ramp. It's their fault, you have right of way. Slide on top of their skis if you can, and scratch the finish. They should know better. Besides, if skiers had any brains, they would be snowboarders.

What is the difference between a bucket of KFC chicken and a ski instructor? The bucket of KFC chicken can feed a family of four.
