I don't understand what you mean by there are no safety protocols. Skiing one at a time down a slope that has some chance of sliding is one basic example. Choosing where to stop to minimize exposure to a possible slide above you is another. I don't claim to be an expert, but basic safety protocols exist and should be followed. I also agree with previous posters that there are plenty of situations where decision making/personal judgement will make the difference between a good day and a bad one.
