Sick-Pow " And personal responsibility has nothing or little to do with experience."

End of thread I hope.

killclimbz That and the amount of terrain you can cover in a short period of time. Clues that you notice as you are strolling along, are not as easy to spot when you are ripping on a 600lb noise machine.

ShredLife another part of it is that dude: ~200lbs +/- ; dude on sled: ~650lbs +/-

Milo303 I will very rarely be doing the stupid stuff that snowmobilers do.... I'm a snowboarder with a sled

They get caught in crap when sidehilling and high marking....

I will be doing a bit of high marking to be dropped off or drop off buddies, but no sidehilling. Easiest way EVER to trigger a slide.

Will most likely be running up spines if possible, we'll have to see.

But I get what you mean with the pie chart no doubt.

Doesn't mean that they'll agree with it, but it sets a point of reference.
ha, I was saying I agree with what you're saying, and disagree that it should set a tone for where things will go in the states.

It's situations like this that end up changing laws.... Tyyyyypically it seems like it needs to happen in the states, before it changes our laws as a whole. But now that it happened elsewhere, a lawyer is going to see an angle when this happens here.

It really is a big deal and a big ass bummer.... Each and every person is responsible for themselves, that's why we're supposed to pick good riding buddies, and educate ourselves right??

It's tough for me to debate this one without getting pissed off...

CheeseForSteeze Killclimbz has a point. It's kind of like that Metallica song, "Sad but True" and it's almost as bad.
