I forgot about this story, but it's 100% true. Me and my two friends were sitting where two trails intersected, we could be easily seen by both runs. They weer both greens. We were at the top of the crossing of trails so we weren't in the way anyway. A boarder came hauling ass and ollie right over my friends head, we were sitting. It was pretty sick, but still have a little respect dude man bro guy.

I agree with this. Sitting in the middle of a run is dumb, but its always the responsibility of the person coming from above to safely stop or avoid those below. I ride fast and I want to keep that speed in certain areas where I know it flattens out after. Still I will just kill my speed if there is even a chance that someone will be there (out of view) or someone that could potentially turn and be in my way.

I also ride without music because I can hear whats behind me and am just more aware in general. I also like the sound of my board on the snow, specially powder which is most of my riding.

Its often not total beginners but intermediates who think they are better than they are who are the most dangerous.

hope you get well soon man,speedy recovery. i ride fast and listen to music but its not loud,cuz sometimes people talk to me on the lift so at least i can hear them and have a conversation.but in regards on riding fast,i slow down when i see kids up on the blue/black runs,beginners and even the ones i think MIGHT suddenly turn.so i just anticipate it and specially if i'm coming down a hill where i cannot see whats in front of me.i'm basically a defensive driver so i do the same while i'm snowboarding.

*phew* Just a quick update. I went to the clinic and I have a strained lower back. So no heavy lifting and no snowboarding until the pain is manageable. I've scheduled an appt to go back in a couple weeks just to make sure nothing's imploded on itself.

Well, at least you're not missing out on much what with all of this dry cold weather. Hopefully you'll be feeling better by the time that La Nina bitch comes back from her cabana vacation.

Haha. I am definitely not complaining. At the rate the weather is going, it's not even going to be cold. Just... brown. =[

sorry to read this.. i hope your injuries heal quick.
with how COOL snowboarding and skiing are these days and the ever increasing population of riders at ski resorts, expect to see more and more collisions of this nature. I've been on both ends of the wreckage, not sure what feels worse wrecking someone else or getting wrecked? be careful out there!

Those few think they own the resort so they cut people off all the time in the park and do shit like I said above. BS
Lots of S.P.O.R.E.S or Stupid People On Rental Equipment! Not everyone that rents falls into this category, but I would say the %age is pretty high. These are also the dildos that constantly ride up and nudge the back of your board in the lift line.

Hope the kid is alright and gets back on the slopes soon!

Damn that sucks Boarderaholic, hope you get better soon.

I was taken out on the bunny hill as a kid when I was a gaper. The guy who hit me was an experienced rider, he just decided that going mach 100 down a bunny hill was a good idea. I assume I turned in front of him while practising linking turns. The old bunny hill used to have a way to get on it from higher runs.
Anyways he hit me so hard it ripped my board off my bindings and destroyed one. Bruised the tendons in my wrists as well.

He felt really bad though, and he happened to have a board with the same bindings and fixed my board for me. Still to this day I am scared and cautious of people behind or above me.

i assume that people are going to ski how they drive. and their kids are going to see how they drive and also do likewise. my dad drilled "head on a swivel" into my head driving, but everyday it seems like a good half the people out there think they are the only ones on the road or slope.
