I had my wife out last weekend - she's still learning. She's linking turns some and she moves pretty slow & cautious down the mountain. Anyway, she was coming down, pretty close to the chair lift, and accidentally clipped the back of a little girl's skis. She was probably 7 or 8. One ski popped off and the girl went over... her other ski sort of buried into the snow and before it popped off it rather violently twisted her. She ended up face down. I stopped, just ahead, just waiting for the kid's mom or dad to come out of nowhere, flipping out. My wife stopped too. I kept asking if she was OK, but she never really responded, just got up slowly. I hopped back up the hill to her to make sure all was well. It seemed to be. She was having some trouble getting her skis back on. My wife wound up holding the tip and I held the tail while she snapped in... I even had to lift the clip-thingy (not a skier!) on the binding up to get it to snap into place.

Her parents never did come around???

Hard to believe no one stopped to even see if you were alright!

Not this weekend. Spent 4 days riding there last week/weekend. Taking a day trip to 7Springs on Sunday. I wonder how long all of the awesome snow will last???
