Snowbasin’s Petulant Potty Mouthed Patroller

by The Editors on December 29, 2011

Utah’s Snowbasin Resort took to Facebook yesterday to let their fans know how embarrassed they were by one of their ski patrollers, according to a story in the Standard-Examiner.

We at Snowbasin Resort had an incident yesterday for which we have received much deserved criticism. We are frankly embarrassed by this situation and have taken measures to prevent this type of incident occurring in the future. Snowbasin strongly believes in treating all of our guests with respect. We strive to deserve the respect and exceed the expectations of everyone visiting our resort.”

The patroller, seen above, told a snowboarder to “shut his fucking mouth” after one of the snowboarders friends had his pass pulled for what appears on video to be absolutely nothing. Patrollers obviously have a rough job during the holidays, but there really is no reason for them to act like Baltimore Police officers. To his credit the patroller did apologize later in the video.

Y’know, you just can’t have all those damned snowboarder kids going crazy fast, and having fun on a mountain that’s clearly designed for going fast and having fun…..

Snowbasin: Do what’s right. Give those kids free season passes already.

See what happens when there is no snow…

Everyone burn a snowboard this weekend on new years eve. Ideally a rocker board.

This will appease me. Otherwise we will have dogs and cats sleeping together and mass hysteria.

Thank you,

Burning skis seems like the better way to go, bro. Rocker boards may be kinda trendy, but skis are truly stupid.
