Pretty difficult to respond to an accident or do control work if everything is just the "Bowl". 

 

They do have some ropes between runs to be able to control access and to discourage people from traversing the whole bowl from say Boxcar, instead of hiking to the top.

His  name was Zetti ( r.i.p., 2012)  and he was indeed an expert skier.  He  just liked Vail a lot.  I'm sure  there are steeper, more challengin places,  and I  don't like some of the Vail layout,  but we're talking personal tastes and what types of sking one likes,  not just what  one can do well.  .  He lived in Breck and had skied all over.

And yes,  my friend was a great skier who many on this list will recall: David Konziela, Zetti, of  Breckenridge.  He thought Vail was fine--and big--and had challenges for those who sought them..  I'll always remember him leading the way through the driving snow as we went over the edge of the Birds of Prey  Super G  run at Beaver Creek.

You said that before, but the thread's been inactive for a year, so maybe you didn't remember?
