Well we only have one side of the story, maybe she was just a dumbass not paying attention. 99.999% of people are not out to hurt others they just act like dopes. Same as driving a car. People who get hit cycling or walking are hit by people that do not realise they are a weapon.

I ended landing nose first, the board got stuck in the snow, and as a result of the impact nose first--my ankle completely blew out of its socket. I did not know this at the time.

I dug myself out and shot down the mountain looking for her (yes, it was a girl) and when I saw her I threw my snowboard at her. At this point I had a limp and missed, but I really wished I hadn't. I cursed, she ran back up the lift, and my girlfriend at the time was telling me to calm down. We go back up the lift and halfway through a run I couldnt ride anymore.

Went to the ER the next day, the left ankle (the ball, top half) completely gaped out in the x-ray. It wasn't a dislocate as it was still socketed in there, but man that thing gaped. Season was over for me after that. Ankle hasn't been the same, not to mention I had to cut my boot off the swelling got so big.

Fuck that shit, the snowboard makes a great weapon. Anyone does this to me again I'm lugging it at someones head.

fattrav Good luck borderaholic, hope you are on a speedy road to recovery.

I've had two decent collisions. Both were from people coming from above me at speed and they came off second best due to hitting a denser object. I still chuckle at the guy who, after we'd collided, was squatting over unable to breath and holding his ribs saying how "it was my fault and that he really really wanted to punch me". I guess what made it worse was my friend laughing and parroting the "below has right of way" rule.

AIRider i chipped my front tooth last year as some asshat hit me from the back, i then proceeded to catch an edge and smack my head on the snow… when i got up he was already gone…

in all seriousness, if i knew what he looked like, i'd make sure to make him swallow his teeth for dinner… I was so pissed...

tis the season. Stay safe out there and remember.....people NEVER follow the other important rule, " look uphill before merging into a trail". This most often applies when stopped.

Literally, the worst possible people breaking this rule.

It happens and collisions are not uncommon, but serious injury is pretty uncommon here.

I think people generally ride more within their limits here and are more polite and humble (of course this is a generalization but it holds true for the most part IMO).
People are also much lighter on average which also helps reduce the impact of collisions.

I have only seen 1 guy here going way too fast and way too close to people on purpose (for some inexplicable reason he thought risking his own and others lives was cool). He was from the states visiting Japan.
I know this because I exchanged heated words with him.

It would have literally been lethal had he hit someone, oh and he was on those silly little skies too.

I am not having a go at Americans either so don't get touchy, its probably just as bad in Europe.
Big part of that is culture. Being polite and courteous is paramount to Japanese culture; they might be plotting your demise but on the outside they are as nice as pie. The arrogant "do whatever I want, fuck you" thing found prominently in American culture is almost entirely non-existent in Japanese. They avoid conflict and for the most part conflict and rudeness are discouraged.

Sean-h Good to know there are no serious injuries. Get well soon The season is only just beginning, we hope....

Speaking of traffic, I live in Belgium right now, the 2nd most densely populated country in Europe after Holland. We have 11 million people crammed into a country just a little smaller than West Virginia. I have seen people here pull some of the most bizarre moves in traffic, I just have to shake my head and let them go....I also hope I don't have to ever share a ski slope with the same person, but then again, I do my best to just keep my cool and eyes open. People probably get so stressed out because you spend half your day stuck in traffic jams, it's bad here.
When on the slopes, I have to adopt the same attitude, always be aware, and when I see that arsehole comming, I just let him go....and there are always aresholes, everywhere...sadly. Then again, no matter how careful you are.....well touch wood, the only injuries I have sustained so far were entirely self inflicted.
