I would never run over anyone on the mountain. Most likely they would be seriously injured. Regardless of where someone has parked themselves you should do everything in your power to avoid them. Besides, as soon as I run over someone, then the new topic is how how dangerous ski racers are... trust me, we have had that conversation before.
BTW, regarding the beefy skis comment... please talk about something that you know about. You ski 15 days a year on C:9's. You probably are at just as much fault as the snowboarders/skiers that the thread is about... The only difference is that you THINK you know what you're doing.
Well, aren't you the expert. Perhaps a little background, as I don't think it's necessary to post every piece of gear I've ever owned on my profile. I grew up in the northern suburbs of Detroit. I was a recreational racer in HS. I used to average 30+ days a year. Since, I've moved out of the state of Michigan, gotten a Bachelor's Degree (biology) and a Master's degree (Physical Therapy) from Indiana University School of Medicine. I found a job in Indianapolis, and here I've stayed. Unfortunately, skiing isn't big in Indy, I have a VERY busy career, and life doesn't afford me the time to devote solely to skiing. Now, Heluva, one of these days you may grow up and find yourself encumbered by real-world challenges that don't allow you to smoke pot all night in your dorm room, then ski all day the next. Until then, please, continue to condescend to people whom you know nothing about, other than a few lines of information on an internet profile. If that's what makes you feel good and validates your existence, don't let me stop you.
