In recent years, Loveland has been attracting a bunch of race teams from all over the world in the early season to train on an already crowded WROD. There have been a ton of collisions and near misses because many of the teams choose the back side of blind rollers to park themselves while waiting to ski one at a time for the coaches, and because the racers will frequently use the entire width of said crowded trail to dodge their imaginary gates.
There's been a lot of chatter at Loveland itself, and on the "Loveland Tomorrow" thread on TGR in recent years about the situation. I myself have been taken out by a skier I was skiing next to, probably 30 yds apart, who suddenly, and blindly careened over and T-boned me. I know a bunch of other people that this has happened to as well. I know all about the skier's code, and the responsibilities of the uphill skier, the responsibility to always ski in control, and be able to avoid other people or objects, but there are situations that the code doesn't directly address, the main one being sharing a slope with someone who disregards the code.
Loveland is aware of the problem, and I've seen patrol issue warnings to coaches, and racers in training about camping out in blind spots, and not being aware of their periphery, and hopefully increased awareness from EVERYONE sharing the trail will cut down on the collisions, but I mention this because even high level racers, and coaches (all skiers) can be guilty of the same bad habits and liabilities typically ascribed to snowboarders,
Of course early season visits from worldwide race teams means a huge cash injection for Loveland, but management apparently also recognizes their responsibility to the rest of us gapers, and IMO has been very proactive in attempting to resolve a dangerous situation, without threatening to ban anyone, although I'm sure they've received more than one complaint, suggesting bans as the remedy.
Anyway, let him who is without gape among you be the first to call for a ban!
