This is true. I think it’s not so much that other users have a sense of entitlement but more that they are oblivious to others. A group of riders drop their bikes on a trail for mechanical or feed session and look at you as you approach oblivious to the fact that they have blocked the trail. I’m skiing cross country a few years ago at Whistler Olympic park coming down a fast descent and in XC the downhill skier has the right of way due to a lack of control. Even when in control. And around a corner is dad, three kids and mom pack down feeding said kids distributed across a very wide two way trail. I find yelling like Homer Simpson clears trail well. Alpine skiing I come across skiers and snowboarders resting not at the edge of a run or sitting below a blind roll. Or they are standing at the edge but start to go without looking up to see if I am coming down at a high rate of speed.  I don’t think it’s an entitled position but they just don’t think.
