Common Sense????I'm just a southern boy who isn't a world-class skier like some of you, but it seems to me that some of you are acting just like the lawyers in trying to determine the "rules of the code". The code to me is "common sense". Just like your employer shouldn't have to have an employee's manual with a rule stating that "spitting on other employees will be cause for termination", we can't write a ski code to cover every conceivable possibility.
As an adult, I should have a higher tolerance and sympathy level for an 8 year old who may just be learning how to ski (or even maybe just misjudged his turn) and may collide with me, then I should for an adult skier/snowboarder who is just being reckless. I shouldn't act like my 6 year old son who want's to retaliate when he's wronged. Its called growing up and hopefully, developing some level of compassion, and is the opposite of pride and the "me-first/only" attitude (which is the problem with our society).
Sometimes in life, the proper thing to do when you are wronged is NOT to retaliate (like cussing someone out, as that always makes the situation better . Maybe the world would be a better place if everyone quit trying to get "mine".
