Perhaps one of the dumbest "surveys" I've ever seen. First of all, "Do you ski or snowboard? YES NO

HUH?

What possible useful information could be gleaned from these inane questions?

For the record, though, I took out a little kid at Stratton a few years ago. I was bombin' it and this little fucker on skis, couldn't have been more than 5, full-on pizza, just turns straight into my path. It was like a trailer truck hitting a VW...I only went down because I was trying to stop so fast, but the kid went flying. His dad came shortly behind and wanted to kick my ass, but mom talked him out of it and explained that the kid cut me off. It was more of skier vs. snowboarder confrontation, not so much the collision. The dad just hated snowboarders and assume that it had to have my fault because I was just goddam knuckle dragger.

The OP, and his/her survey, is a classic example of why I've dedicated myself to the fight against literacy.

That's a great idea! This is the new procedure when kids get in the way. The ones that know how to actually ride without getting innate way don't get their skulls jibbed so they survive. Survival of the fittest mountain style.

Aren't we all just a bunch of knuckle dragging simpletons haha? Every problem on the mountain is our fault.

Thank you for the lesson! I've only been riding for 12 years; I had never heard that rule.

Seriously, I knew where I was and where I was going. I saw the kid. He was going perfectly straight, no turns, snowplowing down the hill very slowly. I had my eyes directly on him as I came down the hill. Just as I was about to pass him on a fairly narrow approach to the base, it was like I was a magnet...he just rapidly turned, right into my path. In 12 years, this is the only collision I've ever had. Yes, I was the uphill rider. But still, sometimes shit happens, no matter how hard you try to avoid it.

I'm just suprised that after 12 years you don't know that this is what skiers do. I mean some are big enough dicks to purposely turn in front of you, the others will undoubtedly do it on accident the second you try to pass too closely. I've had older guys do this trying to fuck with me, and of course it didn't work, but when I realized that he was doing it on purpose I made my mind up to lay them out next time.

It was still your fault.

I was the uphill rider! Of course it was my fault, and I never said otherwise. Funny, though, after twelve years, this was the first time I misjudged the noob, and it happened to be a little kid. I didn't say anything more than that...It was a narrow cut-through trail, and I thought I had my line and my "escape" mapped out, but the kid got me. It hadn't happened before, it hasn't happened since. Fortunately, no one was hurt. But I do so appreciate the lessons in mountain etiquette.

I have a six-year-old son I plan to take snowboarding this year. If I take the survey, will I no longer be able to recognize him (or his massacred remains)?
