BurtonAvenger If you've been to Keystone you'd know that those jumps you can't see up or down on the way they're shaped. Also the whole park is this separate area that has its own lift. Yet every now and then some dumbass wanders off the longest beginner run in Colorado and ends up in the stunt park.

slyder There is what looks like a little snow berm with a gap seperating the park.

THEN there are those 2 riders watching the jump, why didn't they yell at the I think skier, stop !!!!

Side note: was that a 5??

On a side note I watched a family of 5 set up a nice picnic on the landing of jump 3 on Keystones big line about 5 years ago. That was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.
Oh, my bad I thought I saw it roped off in the video. That is fucking ridiculous, that is the single most frustrating thing on the hill.

If you are going to go horizontal across a trail look up and see if there is anything comming at you. You would do the same thing if you were cutting across traffic in a car, so apply some common sense to the hill.
The sad part is that this jump section is roped off. People just don't think before they do things on the hill. It's like everyone's common sense just dispersal.

ThunderChunky Yah, if someone's in the line of a jump and are not actually hitting the jump. They are a major risk, and pain in the ass.

You're never supposed to be at the bottom of a jump like that, unless you're hurt. But you're still supposed to get out of the way. Unless you're like seriously hurt.

oatenshiro I think I'm going to go read up on the rules of the slopes near here... A friend of mine dropped to avoid a kid that was going horizontal like that. The guy with the kid told him he was going to get him thrown out for going to fast...
