The "Vet's" will correct me if I'm mistaken, but one thought about the skier/boarder conflict's seen from a NooB's perspective,..

I've noticed that it seems the experienced, "adept" skiers I see are heading down the blue & black runs with a lot of speed, but unlike the "once a season" skiers, they are flyin' & maneuvering down these runs within a fairly narrow corridor!

The "Tourist Skiers" seem to tend to use ALL of any run they're on. Going slow to moderate, "Across" the fall line, from one side to the other & back!

Even going fairly slow as an inexperienced NooB on a snowboard, I can still manage to stick to a 15-20 ft lane of maneuvering. I know this difference in how we "Use" the runs, has resulted in plenty of close calls for me with skiers!

Whattaya think,.. any validity to this observation?
