That's not the case and if you saw the slope I am speaking of, yoO would also realize this is not & should be a slow zone (and actually it is not a slow zone).
Maybe the scardy cats and beginners should actually stick to the scardy cat & beginner slope? Nope, no rules there? Why????
A 1st timer can go the top of the mountain and make a obstacle of themselves for everyone else. Kinda ridiculous don't ya think. How about a profiency test to ride certain lifts????
99.9% of the time I ski the very far left edge or far right edge of the slope, away from everyone. I am not charging down the middle, knocking babies and old ladies over as I carene down the hill obliviously. Dude, come on?
But does the knife not cut both ways. Experienced skiers can't just ski along at a reasonable pace, but gapers can doodle around on a slope they have no business being on.
Afterall, the ski areas wouldn't want to cater to their season ticket holders, long time supporters and regular customers. No, no it's all about the guy who comes up twice a year and heads down the hill like freaking Jerry Lewis in The Nutty Professor on skis????
I AM NOT ADVOCATING PLOWING THROUGH THE SLOW FAMILY AREA LIKE A BULL IN A CHINA CLOSET!

A weaker skier or a smaller person like children or women talk about this all of the time. You may not be privy to these sorts of comments but are scared to death when you come blasting and they are slow, tending to kids or for whatever reason you may ascribe.
And when two or three come down that slow zone fast, everyone just modifies what they are doing by stopping but it goofs up the run at the very least. You may feel that all is well cuz nothing happened but everyone was getting out of your way.
Thats what could be different.
Its not ok.
