Brighton is so full of little cuts and jibs that drop off the trail and then shoot you back into the trail blind. Ive always taken the time to stop wait and make sure my way is clear before hitting these things. Many times as im waiting to hit things others will just come barreling through and hit them with little or no speed checks or visuals. Normally its no big deal and they keep going occasionally they have near misses with others. It does alot of times seem to be one of two groups.. either younger kids that just dont fully understand consequences or some older old school guy with flames on their beanies that you see drinking beers in the lift lines lol. Nothing wrong with straight lining a bowl as long as the way is clear ( which obviously wasnt the case ) but you gotta have some degree of control when theres others around. Theres very very little on the mountain ( even on an epic pow day ) that wont be there the next run so no need to run over everyone else for that awesome line, box, bowl whatever...
