Nope. I never said that. I said skiing is nothing like driving, and the idea of "lanes" skiing doesn't work and is dangerous.
I always glance uphill when I change my path of travel. That's just smart defensive skiing.
I just don't think requiring others to do so makes sense. As other have pointed out it's not practical for everyone. More importantly, it makes a dangerous situation worse if an overtaking skier has any expectation others will be looking out for them.
It's the WROD I'm afraid of... the current conditions just bore me. I can only ski so many days, and I'm saving them for more fun skiing.
Even on a day it's not very crowded like today, it doesn't take very long to catch up to the next clump of skiers traveling at any decent speed. You then either have to weave through a bunch of slower skiers (dangerous) or adjust to their speed (boring).
Again, watch this video feed. This is not a highway; there are no lanes, and skiers don't behave like drivers:
Ok, I was just checking, which is why I asked.
I have skied 10 days in CO and not been bored for one second yet, but to each his own. I think negotiating the clumps is kinda fun ... a mental exercise.
