painful thigh injury

so i was buttering down a blue and going fast. as soon as i put my nose down i lost balance a little and stumbled so i looked down to regain balance. when i look up an Indian skier was just sitting there. we didn't have anytime to react and we head on collided. it was both our faults, mine for not being aware and his for STANDING IN THE MIDDLE OF A TRAIL! i could barely move my leg for 2 days and the man sprained his wrists. if you want a better image of the collision, picture a freight train smashing Savaans dad =P

Sorry you hurt an innocent bystander and that you got hurt, but even though the guy was stopped on a blue not sure how he is at fault at all. I got plowed going very slowly learning flat 360's why is it my fault for being there even though I was going slow and I was the down hill rider. Same for the poor guy you slammed.
He may have been waiting on his wife that fell or his kid that was going slower or fell. People stop all the time, maybe not the best place in the middle, TRUE, but not his fault. Hope that you apologized to the poor guy

Yeah the Indian part was not needed and people in front of you have the right of way. If he was stopped over a crest where you could not see him that would be a different story.

You were riding out of control and not paying attention. Maybe concentrate a little less on how steezy you look and a little more on where you're going. Standing in the middle of the trail to wait for his friend is not against the rules. You are absolutely 100% at fault. Man up and take responsibility for your actions. Consider yourself lucky if you aren't sued for medical expenses.

Agreed with the above, 100% your fault. Lets put it like this. If a car breaks down in the middle of the road and you run into the back of them because you're not paying attention, whose fault is it?

I do not understand why people cannot grasp the simple concept of downhill rider has the right of way.

This. soo much this. Man up and take full responsibility. You were not in control and not paying attention to what was going on downhill. You're damn lucky it wasn't a kid you hit.

I have a word limit on my cynicism
