This mountain biking looks much more scary than skiing!

Yes, that's some incredible riding.  The consequence of crashing are a lot higher than skiing.  I got involved in MTBing in 1980 and ride a lot more than I ski.  But never got involved with DH biking until the last couple of years since the ASC was late to adopt it until recently.

Not only is a fall going to be more devastating, but you have WAY more control over everything skiing than you do biking down a steep mountainside.  I'm still waiting to see a video of someone dropping Corbetts on a bike.  Granted, with thin coverage most skiers wouldn't try it either.  But, even with similar drops and pitch I don't know of anyone that would hit something like that on a bike and expect good results..
