That makes me mad. I really would like to get the instructors to be teaching to look around.
I mean you dont cross the road without looking, why would you not look before taking off on a ski slope with people flying past?
i will tell you why, coz the rule of thumb they teach is this; (same as driving) whoever coming from behind needs to be careful, period
