Maybe more people will take lessons and accident like this can be avoided.
That would be a great idea. If the "never-ever" lessons were free or very cheap, that would certainly cut down on accidents. As for how the resort would recover the cost, that's another topic.

I'm a newbie to all this, but I did see one accident up close. A kid, about 7 years old on ski was apparently drawn to a snow maker like a moth to a light. She headed right for it doing about 15mph. There was a depression 2-3ft deep around the padded snowmaker. She ate the snowmaker and dropped into the hole about armpit deep. It took about a minute for her to get out with some help, but she was perfectly fine, but it looked pretty bad.
