So the plan to copy lift tickets was indeed successful. Why I am in pain follows.

Snowboarding, color copier
The Doctor sayz...
Snowboarding + girlie = this diary
So it was great snowboarding. Fantastic conditions. It started snowing on the drive up. We did stay in a tent instead of a mo/hotel room to save money. It got really cold in the tent but was worth not paying the $180 we would have had to cough up to enjoy a heater and a room.

Coping the tickets took about a half hour to get just right. Since the copier center, what we called the color copier, was on best quality it took about 5 mins to copy each ticket. So we set it for 6 and went to breakfest. When we got back 6 lift tickets waiting for us.

Snowshoe's slopes are really nice. I liked the "Western Terrioty" run the best, though it closed at 3, since it had no lights and it apparently takes a while to close, so we only got to ride it once. The terrian park was really good. There was a big 15-20 foot table top. My brother went off of it no problem, I went off it 3 times no problem. The fouth time, ouch. I landed wrong or something. Injured my knee. It hurt so bad I couldn't walk or snowboard. I limped down the rest of the way of the slope. What sucked was the fact that the bottom on that slope wasn't the resort, it was just the other side of the mountain. So I pussed out and got ski patrol to take me back. My friend's took pictures of me getting hauled off in the snowmobile to make fun of me later. They then meet me around to help me get in to one of the vehicles. It was at the end of the day and everyone felt like going home anyway. So no big loss. All and all a great weekend.

One other thing worth mentioning would be those newish walkie-talkies that are becoming popular. Well at ski-resorts they're everywhere. Everyone seems to have to have at least two and always hitting that stupid call button that makes the tone. What was fun was fucking with people. We had this group go from one side of the moutain to the other looking for their friend "Matt". They got so pissed when they finally figured out they'd been had.

It should be clear to you that your knee injury was divine punishment for counterfeiting lift tickets. I hope that you have learned an important lesson from this regrettable episode, and that in future you will not steal things - this includes stealing music and movies (I believe that "file-sharing" is the common euphemism used by hackers), pirating software or using open source software. While your knee convalesces, take this opportunity to dwell on the fact that the owner of the ski slopes and his family will be starving because you defrauded them. And remember, next time your divine punishment will be far more severe. - love it or leave it.

That you found it amusing to trick those poor people who were simply trying to find their friend.

Did it occur to you that perhaps 'Matt' was an irresponsible snowboarder, who had ducked under the ropes (put there for his own safety) in order to do some illegal backcountry boarding, and that he might have been lying broken-limbed in the snow while you, a fellow boarder 'fucked with his friends' as you so charmingly put it ?

This shows what I have always suspected. The snowboarding 'community' is made up of a bunch of amoral punks with little concern for their fellow boarders, much less the skiiers who have been on the mountains for so much longer than they have.

Where you attempt to return this color copier for full price, and damage your soul lying about why you want to return it.

I returned it already, right after I got back from mass actually. I didn't lie though. I told them I didn't need it anymore. Their, Staples, return policy says the accept returns for *ANY* reason, within 14 days for technology items, such as printers or copiers. No fuss no muss. The biggest wait was for "Paul" to check to make sure it wasn't damaged.
