This is probably a case where any amount is "too much". Because there literally hundreds of much bigger problems in society which affect many more people, towards which tax dollars and legislative resources would be better or more equitably spent. You can't reasonably argue that this is the most efficient use of legislative time & effort, or tax dollars while people are still starving and homeless and poor and can't find jobs or feed their families etc.

Just to put it in perspective, do you have any idea how many people die each year while skiing/snowboarding?

FORTY. That's it. And most of them (over half) are wearing helmets, and most of them are 18+.
