I share your frustration, but there's a lot of people out there who are not great on the slopes. I'd much rather see them taking their time and controlling their speed than becoming unguided missiles. In a perfect world, they'd make slow perdictable turns, but if they could do that, they wouldn't be newbies. Newbies are going to be erratic, I'd just rather that they'd be slow and erratic than fast and out of control.

That said, if they aren't newbies...then they should moving according to conditions: not bombing crowded pitches, not taking up the whole run, etc. If an experienced person is out on a jam packed Saturday, well....too bad, you don't get to practice your high speed super G turns.
