Shiftyrider said (in another thread): "The average snowboarder is statistically less likely than the average skier to plow into someone, by the way." Any real stat/evidence to back that up? I'm not anti-board (I ski while many of my friends board) but in my entire life I can recall being hit by a skier only once, while I average at least on boarder crashing into me per season. I've always assumed it had nothing to do with the equipment (boards v. skis) but rather the age of (and, in some cases, previous consumption of alcohol by)the skier/rider (with riders generally younger and/or drunker) than skiers on average.
