Hmmm, my wife is a bird.

I think they smell good when you grind em in your garbage disposal (edit: ORANGE PEELS not BIRDS), so of course I'd never discard them in a lift line. :angel:

Still, it's kinda hard to conjure up much indignation over an orange peel. I don't think Dreamworks is making a storyboard just yet.

One of the reasons the birds are so into picking up orange peels is cuz all the worms have already been taken, and dumped into the water by fisherman. Yer trails need more fisherman on them, or lifties...



HA HA-- wow thats some deep thinking -- better slow down

and go do a few runs

As an indication, below are some commonly used products and the average length of time they take to biodegrade:

Cotton Rag 1 - 5 months
Paper 2 - 5 months
Orange Peel 6 months
Cigarette butts 1 - 12 months
Plastic coated paper milk cartons 5 years
Leather Shoes 25 - 40 years
Aluminium Cans 80 - 100 years
Plastic 6 pack can ring holder 450 years
Glass bottles 1 million years
Plastic bottles Forever


Sure, it's biodegradable, but it's still litter. Trail maps biodegrade quicker.

At Mammoth, these times are probably way too short. They're probably calculated for a mild, wet climate. At Mammoth, something thrown on a run spends about half the year frozen in the snow pack, were it doesn't biodegrade. Once the snow melts off, the trash dries out for nearly all of the summer. The altitude also slows the process. All told, there's probably only 1-2 months a year of good biodegrading weather.

Um - that is not really a good idea either. Anyone who works in water management would beg you to put your waste vegetables in with the yard waste so it could be properly composted and reused. When it goes in the sewer it mixes with the other stuff in sewers and needs to be treated and removed before the water can be pumped back into the groundwater or dumped wherever.

Skied a few days last week. Was lining up around 8:20 at Chr. 10, with a group of 3 others. Next thing I know the liftie is bringing over his shovel with a pile of snow in it and a piece of orange (the fruit) debris on top. He says to the guy in front of me...did you just throw this? Guy in front of me cops to it and the liftie tells him there is a trash can he can go put it in. Guy takes it and puts it in the trash. Well, that was that, no way he was going to open up early (as 2 was already taking riders). Headed over to 2....when we made it back to 10 a bit later told the liftie how well he handled it! Please don't trash the mountain. Was glad to see him hold this guy accountable. Props :clap:


Bottom Line: Don't be a jerk on the slopes. The same guy tossing orange peels is the same guy throwing F-Bombs in front of the grommets, complaining about closed lifts...and driving slow in the fast lane on the 395! Peace, love, and eternal grooviness folks. Respect the mountain and it will return the favor! (Woh, groovy man!) ;)

Not quite. I do however scream at the NFL Network, walk up and strap in next to closed top lift shacks, and drive in the oncoming lane now and then. You should, too.

It's obvious the liftie knew dried orange peels make excellent fire starters.

Classic.

I usually just put a tiny sliver of peel in there to keep it smelling fresh. But I can see I'm already in trouble with you for even owning a disposal.

I think I'll probably stop exhaling too now that I think of it.

The smug is coming to Mammoth.

Just trying to bring awareness to something many don't have a clue about. It may be better cosmetically to get rid of garbage in the disposal, but environmentally friendly it is not.
