I agree. If you have the ability. But you're going to have to control your speed. If you go down the mountain extremely fast/"bombing it" regardless whether it's blue/green/black especially on hardpack(or worse ice) conditions you will eventually get injured. This is common sense. That's what I meant to say it. Anyway, this is totally off topic! People hijacked this thread with irrelevant conjecture and then blame me! I asked a simple question. You guys are clearly just trying to keep me going.
