What travelers to South Lake Tahoe are saying

Got beat up at heavenly by 4-5 guys for not being a local on the terrain park.. Serurity was friends with them and let them go.. I'm in the process of filing a lawsuit I don't pay 600.00+ a year at 40 years old to be beat up for riding where I paid to ride..
