20-year-old skier killed at Keystone | 9news.com
Ride there this year, and then when you think about it this summer your gonna facepalm and be like jesus h christ i'm never going back to that shithole disney mountain again.

I'll go back for a51 laps but w/e its a deathtrap.

Just observe the volume of people screaming down roped off hardpack blue runs. its basically been a luge course for the last 2 years with tree walls instead of ice walls.

To be fair everyone has to keep in mind how fast we are going and to be careful. A good friend of mind who is an expert skier hit something weird in flat light this morning and broke his collarbone in 2 places and is all jacked up. He regularly clocks over 70mph, and figures he was doing close to 50 when he fell. How many people are we watching at keystone doing 35mph+ who you know for sure have an insignificant fraction of the experience and skill of a seasoned expert?

RIP Keystone Daredevils.
