Mine is when your someone's dog steps on the back of your board while skinning. It kinda stops all your forward momentum and sometimes makes you wipe out. I know their feet might get cold, but if people are taking dogs in the backcountry they need to train them on basics or they could be a liability.

i hate it when people who have about the same ascent rate as you, skin past, and take a break aways ahead. then you skin past them and take your break, getting passed again. it's really no ones fault (except maybe theirs cause they aren't breaking at a dedicated break point). it just sucks having to get stuck in a loop and nod your head at people you don't know but increasingly hate as you switch leading positions over and over. usually it ends up with me putting a little too much effort in getting ahead and staying there just to stick it too them, which in leaves me wheezing and hacking and eventually getting chilled while i put my board together. i have no problem if you pass me and i never see you again or vice versa.

Is it really that crowded in Alaska? Hard to imagine.

Yeah - basically anytime my skis are pointed up but my direction of travel is pointing down. Almost always this happens because the slope angle steepens tantalizingly close to a switchback or the top of a slope and I decide that I can just use my poles and brute force to power my way through. It never works.

Ditto on the wierd/rude people, too. There's only two people on the entire mountain and one of them is throwing the stink-eye. What's up with that??

nothing to really whine about too much when skinning i think it is such a great mode of transport. it has its disadvantages depending on the terrain and conditions.

being a newbie to splitting last season i seperated the skins before putting them on the board - and on one particularly windy day at the snowline - right after regluing my skins barely two months old - i let the skin glue hit the dirt and it gets the glue all f-d up. waaaa waaaa crybaby soup i gotta glue em up again! ugh i feel much better now.

oh and im not bitching or anything but having some SNOW TOO SKIN ON sure would be nice!

to hate while touring-

skinning over dog shit

wishing i had brought the split-crampons, and knowing they are sitting in the car, and slipping all over the ice that looks like a Zamboni just polished it

ohh by the way

i tour with my dog

1. he poops on skin tracks. i try to push it off the skin track, but if its runny...not so much

2. he steps on the back of people boards when he's tired

so he's a troublemaker.

How bout skinning up with that freakishly athletic buddy who every half hour is so far ahead that he's doing runs back down to you, when all you want to focus on is sucking enough air to make it to the top once.
