Btw, what is up with the traffic jam at 4:30? And after that the trails look dangerous for newbies from the video. Steep drop offs and rocks everywhere?
If you go straight instead of going uphill you end up at 2 black runs (albeit it would have been closed due to the lack of snow and exposed rocks) so most people opt for that instead - even if you do make it up, chances are that it will be blocked by a shitload of people and you would have to stop anyway.
That drop looks a bit worse than normal, usually it isnt that nasty, but if you go too far left you hit overhanging rocks, and too far right and you fall off
This field just kinda funnels people into narrow places.
