Opening day at Brighton this year, some little kid, 12 or 13 years old, broke his arm on a giant rock/boulder. While waiting with him for ski patrol, while screaming bloody murder, at least 10 people sprayed snow all over him/us. Which obviously made things much worse for this kid. Apparently the two snowboards, mine and his, sticking up in the snow right in front of us wasn't much of a clue that someone was injured. We were not even on a groomed run, we were on a side of a hill, hence the giant rocks.
I think it comes down to two things, people are just completely oblivious or complete ass holes.
I can understand the morons sitting/laying down out of sight behind rolling terrain or in the middle of a run or blind turn. There isn't another way to tell these idiots to 'rest' at the bottom or off to the side, far away.
