Brass Tacks

A skier goes over the chair lift tolet at Whitefish Moutnain Resort.

Liftie takes it deep.

It seems like there are a lot of unanswered questions these days.  Let’s face it, we live in an era of hypermedia bias and deflection.  In this short piece we intend to cut through the bullshit and isolate the most critical topics.   Using advanced technology* we polled a group of highly vetted locals.  These are their responses.

1. Best place to take a shit (on the mountain)?

2. Do you night ski? (Yes or No)

3. What is the worst crash you’ve ever seen?

4. Has your pass ever been clipped or pulled? For what reason?

5. Least favorite “overused” ski terminology/slang?

Jason
1. Clinic (Midday when no one else is around) 2. Only when I work a 9-5, with drunk friends, or when I’m paid. 3. On the clock as a patroller, watched a girl knock herself the f@#$ out right in front of me. 4. No, I’m a ninja. 5. Epic.

Amy
1. First of all, girls don’t shit – except for the rare occasion and in that case I prefer to do it in the comfort of my own home … it is kind of “on the mountain”, right?
2. Hell yes – every Friday night and as many nights during the holidays as possible. I try to gather as many female friends as possible each and every Friday night (mostly because the guys always whimp out. I don’t understand why, night skiing is the BEST). One night we had a group of 10 females and no males (stupid males). While night skiing I like to work on my skills in the KTP (kiddie terrain park), visit the patrol to thank them for working a REALLY long day and drink beers at the stube’. I really really really hope they NEVER get rid of night skiing!!!!
3. It would have to be my own at Moonlight about 4 years ago. It was a powder day and we were third in line when they dropped the ropes to the bowl. I took 4 turns, caught a tip and crashed into two trees. Got up and started to strip down naked ! Turns out I cracked my helmet, couldn’t move my upper body for 3+ days, many bruises and sore muscles.
4. No, never. My ski pass is the third most important thing to me on this earth – behind Craig and Marlee. I would NEVER put it at risk, ever!!! 😍
5. Sick bro

Kyle
Does this have to do with the Tap House Family Feud?

Kate
1) I take care of that before I head to the mountain. 2) Only when Amy makes me. 3) Like Amy, I think my own: head first, on my back in the NBC apron, sliding over rock hard, super set up explosive debris. As I was being tenderized over the ice chunks Jason just kept yelling “self arrest! Self arrest!” 4) Nope! I’m a good kid! 5) Epic!

Erick
1. Good place to shit….$%*@’s office, no doubt.
2. Night skiing rules, especially when it dumps.
3. Worst crash… came across a young kid in a tree well off of Grey Wolf with a leg snapped in half.
4. No. See Jason’s answer…..
5. Anything with ‘bro’ attached

Erick getting it.

Erick getting it.

Kyle
1. Top of Chair 2 out house. 2. YES! 3. O man on BIGGY- maybe Bill Johnson. On TV. Todd Brooker on the Hannenkahm – career ender. I once watched a guy in jeans from LA hit a 100 ft table in Mammoth; he didn’t have enough speed and cased the landing. Both legs bowed out like a car jack he then rolled down the landing to us and spit up his chew and some blood. We called it a day after that. 4. YES, clipped for 2 weeks for poaching Picture Chutes on a sunny Saturday during xmas break — it was the second lap so worth it they took pass for 2 weeks which was how long i wold be gone for. 5. I like all ski terminology but sometimes the people who use it are my least favorite.

Billy
1. Bathroom next to my moms office. 2. Yes, it extends my weekends. And mini bottles! 3. What is the worst crash you’ve ever seen….hmm…. Does your own crash count? (See photos) 4. When I was 12 I was caught throwing pickles up agains the window downstairs summit house in order to see who’s would stay up there longest (I think Billy Madison had just came into my brain) 5.  Chunder… nobody like chunder

David
1. Lobby of the Kintla Lodge. Real peaceful. 2. On occasion but Generally no. Unless we could Night ski right now then I am in. 3. A ski racer at Mt LaCrosse bombed down Damnation, hooked a tip and ate shit. When he came too he skied past Erick and I with his face bleeding and mumbled something incoherent when we asked if he was Alive? 4. Bristol Mountain in New York Had a no jumping policy in the 80’s and 90’s. 5. New Jump Names. Everything should have Daffy or Twister or Spread Eagle in it.
