even if this is exactly how it went down, the person downhill of you always has the right of way. if you cant avoid hitting someone who you can see and was anticipating then you need to up your skills. i see idiots like that the all the time and the only time ive ever hit any of them is when im in the middle of the air spinning and there they are in the middle of the landing.

Love my smith helmet with built in headphones, I don't blast it so loud that I can't hear people around me. I'ts nice not to have to take my helmet off for phone calls and jamming while sitting in the lift line or riding the lift up. I ride alone allot so having tunes is a huge advantage, if the mountain is so crowded you have to duck and dodge people all day I'd rather be doing something else anyways.

^^This. Merge points can be crowded, but that's still really no excuse for running into someone downhill of you (music or not). Sounds like you (Kwanzaa) need work on your fundamentals or maybe only ride wider trails .

oh yeah and I just use cheap ear buds until they fall apart then buy another pair. The last set lasted two season and only cost $10. I've never had a problem running into people. Bluetooth speakers for my helmet (Salomon Patrol Air) would be nice, but I'd rather put that money towards something else like gear, pass, gas, food, wax, etc...

I'm glad people agree that the person in front always has the right-of-way. We all get those jerkoffs who cut in front of you then hit the breaks, but it's your responsibility to stay in control and avoid hazards, and people are probably the biggest hazard. Always have to take morons into account.
