Unloading from the chair lift can be a traumatic moment even for veteran skiers.
Usually a similar set of circumstances are present every time I have a difficult unload.
Usually, there are people milling about in the unload zone and I have to ski around them to clear out of the unloading zone. In addition, the person I rode the chair up with constrains the path I can take too, but that is a part of it and as long as the unload zone is clear all people on the chair should not interfere with each other unloading.
So the moral of the story is to understand what area is a lift’s unloading zone and get out of it as soon as you can. If you want to wait for someone or chat with your group do that outside of the unloading zone!
It is called combining thoughtfulness with common courtesy.
