Your preaching to the choir here chief. I've never hit anyone. I ride well within my limits, I have to, I work for a mountain, if I hit somebody its game over.
But I know your not telling me you know where every patch of ice is on every run at any given point, and that you never go fast. Besides, it doesn't really mean shit how you ride, its about how other people ride, and they will never be as careful.
And that's the point. If everyone followed the code of conduct and rode within themselves, then a huge percentage of these collisions wouldn't happen. Single person accidents...sure. Two person collisions? Always avoidable.
The problem isn't with the various rules, it's the people who don't think they apply to them. And that doesn't make the rules any less sensible. The rules are just fine, sensible and applicable to every condition, deep pow or boilerplate.
