Choice of route
The skier/snowboarder in front has priority - leave enough space.
I was apalled to listen to a Policeman (that's right, a Policeman, here in Italy the patrollers are Policemen, Carabinieri, Guardie di Finanza (Border Patrols) and Alpini
(army mountain troops))
being interviewed on the midday news today, saying (referring to skiing):"you must be look in front of you, besides
you, AND behind you!"
I undertsand it as he meant that it's better be safe than sorry, neverthelees I cannot accept such a comment coming from a patroller, someone who should know the skiers code by heart!
Especially because, looking back while skiing is not something I would classify as safe.
I do hope that the interviewer "misquoted" him (by cutting and pasting the interview to make it fit the lenght of time reserved to them) otherwise...
