Haha, I was going to ask for pizza. I've decided it's my favorite food after all, as I suspected early on.

My contributions to the anti-snowboarding threads are the ones that get me warnings of imminent banning.

I used to Monoboard in high school. I saw it in a Warren Miller movie and never let up on my parents until the next Xmas when , there it was. A Rossignol 200cm thing of beauty with Salomon 997 Drivers all mounted up.

I killed it on that board for one season. This was before fat skis and I could not believe the flotation in the pow. Unbeatable.

Then the next year I made friends with a bunch of real skiers and I was not to discretely told that it was ghey and I should quit.

I never touched it again, she is in my parents shed to this day.

OK, real world experience time. A patroller on a board trailing a loaded sled on a steep slope NEVER gets on the toe side, NEVER got sideways, at least on my ride. He stayed face downhill the whole time, heel side controlling a very slow decent, except after stopping to check on me. On the runout I guess your point has some merit, but I didn't feel at risk. I would think a patroller with a loaded sled would keep very situationally aware, that goes for what ever is on his feet.
