Are we seriously going to rehash this over 1000 post Classic thread? Maybe there should be a thread merge?

Grey was skiing a bit recklessly, cut left hard to take a new line and maybe to take a new trail or hit that small patch of powder.  He did not look uphill to see the oncoming skier. Red was skiing with fine form, grey blindsided him. I've been in situations exactly like that.

 

 

I know this is not a MA thread but I find the bold & underlined part of the evaluation very troubling.

Fine form? Now i am going to have to watch the video? Was he using his poles properly?

I don't think those micro-wedge christies would pass the muster; too much stemming.  Poles?  Sorry I didn't notice the poles.  I'll have to watch again.  EDIT: too much arm and shoulder movement.  :nono:

Agreed, too much arm movement grey looks like he is learning to fly, and it seems backwards to me. grey and red are both tipping. nice yard sale. Grey looks like he had a big bowl of Loco Puffs for breakfast and a couple of craft brews in lieu of lunch. You can tell from the way he staggers back to his skis.

They've both already spent too much time "gnaring the shed" to be allowed back out on the mountain. Time to :eek drive home

I've watched it a few times now. I think maybe 20% red at fault, 80% grey.

Actually it looks more like a white/black/scarf guy. If you look earlier in the video you'll see his form was more of a beginner.

 

Scarf guy took a long sweeping left handed turn, he did not look. It also looks like scarf guy was the uphill skier where they collided, based on the cant of the trail.

 

Nope.

 

This is really simple guys. If you can't pass the downhill skier with enough space to avoid them no matter what they do, don't pass.

I think they should all be thrown in prison.  Or perhaps given Mercedes.

I hadn't looked at this thread in years till it popped up on new posts. But jimmmy's post is pure poetry and deserves a wider audience.

Red for sure (again, not saying I would pull the pass, but given the choice...).  If Grey is on a marked trail, he doesn't have to maintain the exact same line, exact same turn radius - he can ski the entire trail without having to 'look up'.  That being said, on a crowded trail, it 'should' be common sense to know your surroundings when altering your line.

Both; for holding a yard sale without a permit.

 

Fire patroller for not enforcing permit requirement.

 

Ban camera operator from resort for capitalizing on other people's misfortune.:nono:
