weird crash while in jasna 2 weeks ago

was riding with a friend of mine on the south side of jasna (32 black iirc) in atrocious visibility (2-3m tops due to very dense fog), kept to the right hand side of the run to keep the piste markers in view as the conditions were pretty sparse and going off piste was mostly a rock and tree stump fest.

doing some nice hard jump turns and had just turned from heel to toe side and suddenly i was sliding ... hands went down and i looked through my legs to see where i was going (didn't see much). eventually i stopped sliding and looked up hill. weird, there is a ski pole a few meters above me, so i look down hill to see a skier, sans skis, going head first down the run on his back. gravity being a bit weak around me sometimes, it took a while to put it all together ... the skier had been racing down the run, hit me and instead of me going flying, got launched over me almost like i had judo thrown him. he ended up probably 20+ meters downhill from the point of impact.

so i climb up to fetch his ski pole, head down to him to check that he is ok and upon arriving get greeted with "kurva" and a bunch of angry sounding polish i did not understand ... so i handed over his pole, asked if he was ok (there was no obvious clutching of body parts/sounds of pain/appendages in weird positions) so i headed off. that afternoon while unstrapping outside the chalet i noticed that my bindings and board had gotten some damage from the impact, no big deal (one minor scratch on the topsheet between the bindings and one large chunk out of the topsheet and sidewall on the heel side of my board; some super minor scratches on the heel cup of the right hand side binding).

after the impact i didn't really think further than "i'm ok, he seems to be ok, no obvious damage to my stuff", looking back at it i think i should have probably stayed to try to find out if he was actually ok. anything else that i should have done? don't like messing up so would prefer to make a list and consult it (on my phone or on actual paper) post incident. suggestions?

I usually sray to make sure they are able to ski/ride away alright when I see an accident. The way we ride it is petty unlikely to get hit from behind.... in fact today I cane upon a down rider, stopped to make sure he was alright, he wasnt. I called ski patrol and waited until they got there, rode off as they came up.

I did get hit from behind once after a very abrupt hard stop coming over a roller from an advanced run into an intermediate area. I basically tackled her, she went from straight line at me to the ground. She left the mountain with patrol. I rode away. She would have plowed into about 12 kids with an instructor had i not knocked her off her skis.

As I've gotten more into carving, I've become super worried about being hit from behind. Too many assholes straighlining right by me and not giving me any elbow room. I've had a few near misses. And people act like it's my fault because I'm making big turns. Nope. Downhill skier/rider has right of way. There's no asterisk next to that says "unless you're carving."

I've only once had a hard fog roll in where visibility was cut to arms length. Scared the crap out of me. Not a good situation to find yourself in.

20m is over 60 feet. That's a long way. Lol. I watched an idiot snowboarder take out a skier this year like that though. The snowboarder took out his knees and the skier went end over end. I went down to intervene. The skier was upset (rightfully so) and the snowboarder was laughing and semi-apologetic. I sat there until I was sure they weren't going to take the gloves off and go at it.

I actually hit someone my last time out. There were 3 ladies skiing SLOWLY side by side by side on a busy cat track, if your picturing three bikini clad babes it's the opposite of that. I yelled for them to move and look out more than a few times but they just froze up like some starfish. It was basically a tree wall on one side and drop off into not good OB on the other, I couldn't go around them so I opted to squeeze in between two of them...But I couldn't make it...I wasn't going that fast by this point...But like three pretty hefty chicks just full on snow plow with arms spread wide, all going slow as fuck side by side. It's not like I hit her per say; I could have stopped, but after like 20 seconds behind them I thought I could make a move because it was apparent neither one of them was going to.

The hit has more like a slow and soft deflection than anything.

I just bounced off one chicks butt and kind of had to dry hump the middle one to keep my balance, as she lost hers and I helped her recover, I said sorry, we all said were OK, and laughed, and we all kept riding with me finally taking the lead. I yelled back that I said to move. They yelled back and maybe I misread that laughter, they were actually pissed off and yelled that I should have passed on the side. Damn Aussies.

I just sped off so I didn't have to see them at the chair.

I don't believe in signatures

Yeah, I got the same thing out of his post, too. Nothing wrong with dryhumping a hefty girl... as long as your friends do not find out.

So, 3 hefty girls slowly skiing side-by-side, trees on one side, drop-off on the other side. I guess I would have dryhumped the one in the middle just in case I got bucked off her, I wouldn't want to land in the trees or the steep drop-off.

that does technically sound like an accident to me. you'd never do it on purpose ... or if any of your mates were watching
