Not true. I seem to recall area's have boundry to boundry skiing. Some small places are (here and there) off limits, but I'm sure the major plays all have B to B skiing.
I know Okemo does and Killington and ...
I also love the way once someone mentions "a helmet may have helped" someone else is just as quick to say "NO it wouldn't". I think it's common knowledge that safety gear saves lives.
The nice thing about life is you can make your own choices, some of us chose to make the smarter choices.
It's unfortunate that this happened, but we all know the risk.
