I was having a discussion about this with my friend last night. He believes that anyone who was going fast enough on a green run to kill themselves despite wearing chest and head protection completely brought that upon themselves. He said it was like driving highway speeds on surface streets. Obviously the argument stalemated because very few people know the real facts, but my main point was that you don't have to be doing mach 1 to sustain mortal injuries in a collision. I figure a 20mph sudden stop into a tree could do someone in if they hit a certain way.
In any case, makes me sad to hear people dying while snowboarding. Rest in peace.
