Holy fuck I hurt.
 
Guys, please watch out for other riders around you. I was only on snow for a whopping thirty minutes for my second ride of the season before I got clipped by someone who wasn't paying attention. My back is now a big mess and I don't know when I can go back to riding/teaching. So please, be careful out there and watch out for others!!

Alpine responsibility code #2.

I saw a kid pop of of a natural halfpipe/ bowl thing we have and do a 360 without looking. He landed on a little kid, maybe 5. Landed straight on his head. Didn't even stop until he got to the bottom and then hesitated to go back and see. The kid had to be mercy flighted.

That sucks.

Seems like the biggest danger in snowboarding. I give people a wide birth and rarely get overtaken, but I do keep an ear out for people coming from behind. I also avoid weekends because the chances of a bump are much higher.

Hearing stuff like that makes me really angry. Do you have any more updates on the kid?

i really hate how people dont understand that the downhill rider/skier has the right away..pisses me off. ive seen way to many close calls in my first two weeks of riding this seaon..its usually the gapers and other people of that sort that like to run other people down bcuz the only thing they know how to do is jump onto a box or go off a 5 foot kicker lol

ok rant over :)

No, unfortunately. I know he didn't die at least. He was out cold for about 10 minutes. I'm sure he was alright in the end, but still. There is a lot of that here. A few experienced and in the know riders here and the rest is ma an pa skiers and weekend warriors. 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

Vibes for a speedy recovery.

I started using my own alpine responsibility code...being that I'm an old lecherous and treacherous fuck.

Alpine Code... That just applies to life in general!

Part of the reason I love the mountain I ride is that it's never that crowded and the terrain allows you to avoid people. I'm more worried about trees then people most of the day. Shit still happens though, I know it was a lot more a problem when I used to ride at Kirkwood (which isn't even that bad compared to places like Heavenly). Some skier-lady completely plowed my dad at Squaw Valley several years ago, luckily neither of them got very hurt.
