My point is that the docs can't "sucker punch" you with a lawsuit. If they observe a deficiency and don't bring it up, they are being negligent. They'd look pretty stupid bringing a negligent suit against the patroller.

For much less than the cost of one snow cat a resort could have a cadre of people on the hill at all times encouraging safe skiing.


Mango, we never had this enforcement in the past. I don't want it now. The problem is - skiing has changed. And, Now we have snow boarders. The ski areas let too many people ski on a trail. It's like skiing in Japan now (not that there's anything wrong with that). The solution is better design. We have those yellow jackets on our mountain and they are nice but I wish they would quit telling me to slow down, especially when I am not skiing too fast.

Booted

Oh yeah,

That guy in the video should not be "bugged" in any way - he's fine. He is checking his speed going back and forth. He could stop instantly.
