hell fuck I was riding on sunday going down this hill. I got down the hill first and was doing some sweet carves. this old dude seems to be a decent rider decided he has to ride side by side in my blind spot, who was putting his board on when I went down the hill. so I went for my heel side turn riding goofy, he went for his heel side turn riding regular...bang...
I do admit he's like in his 40-50's but man his invisible girlfriend arms are just not right.
I need to invent a helmet with a rear view camera.

If your lift setup allows you to see your run options on the way up, I make sure to scan what is currently on the hill, what appears to be getting ready to drop in from the top and I will often change my run selection based on what kind of "traffic" I can see or anticipate. I'll pass on my 1st choice to avoid "the traffic" we know all too well.
At my age, getting wiped out for whatever reason, is not something my body takes kindly to. I always do whatever I can to ensure that I can "do another run and ride another day"

Of course, they need to that a couple of times each run.

This happened back in January @ Snowshoe WV. Blue slope with ice patches. I was trying to time passing the guy in the orange jacket practicing his 92 degree turns. After I hit him you can here him ask me if I'm alright.

Whereas a skier, as soon as they can "pizza" their way around? Will take that lame assed shit to every run on the mountain, getting in the way, and relying completely on the "downhill" rule to keep them safe from riders who can actually ride the terrain.
...and you are absolutely correct in that not a single F'ing skier EVER checks uphill before turning, merging into a run, or making any of their bonehead maneuvers! Novice or expert!
