true story, I never take " one last run" or just one more lap, hit the triple one more time etc.

Murphy's law will always turn up the gravity immediately after saying those words.

maybe it was the electric model in all winter camo paint.... That would throw off the typcal bright RED with LOUD AS FUCK diesel motor that would be expected of a typical snow cat...

Any cat that operates during day time has a flashing light and a loud beeper on it.

The whole story said something about the snowcat coming around a corner, staying to the left of the slope. She must've been bombing it full tilt (aka OUT OF CONTROL) to catch the back end of it if it was already on the left side of the run.

Possible explanations:

She had music blaring (one of the reasons why I don't listen to music, so I can hear my surroundings)

Wearing dark tinted goggles so flashing didn't catch her attention good enough in her peripherals

Visibility that day could have been low

She was going too fast

She got air around a roller or something and landed on the cat

She just plain was not paying attention


Either way, that sucks balls.

Even with the highest grade audio you'll hear that beeping over it along with the rumble of the engine.

No matter how dark your goggles are you'll still see the flashing unless she's wearing wielding glasses.

Low visibility wouldn't hide a cat.

Blind roller maybe but would have heard the cat and more than likely that roller would have to be so fucking abrupt and huge she had to have her head up her ass not to notice it.

Not paying attention highly probable as people are stupid.
