Thanks Ghost, looks like I'm getting an education here! I will say I don't think I will ever be able to do again; what I have done for years without incident. Lets hope others will read this stuff, and maybe learn the easy way. I do like to play the devils advocate, because it seems to bring more people into the discussion. I guess as I stated prior I will need to get a group of spotters if I'm ever going to enjoy Cliff Hanger again. It would take at least four or five of them on this run depending on ones line because there is at least that many blind spots. I guess I'm going to have to form a club! Not sure how it's going to work, but it is a possibility!
We have a insane park on Mt. Bachelor, yet I never see anyone "spotting" for anyone there. People just wait until the person ahead has cleared the first or second feature. Sure there are the photo takers, but there not spotting, they are listening to a count down to air so they will shoot the photo at the right time! We have some awesome talent on Mt. Bachelor, so if you ever go there, don't stop where you can't be seen from above! :-)
PS I've never seen a on-line discussion stay exactly on topic. Things drift a little. Your point about entering a trail, run, piste is a very important point for all "younger" riders to know! We have that problem at Mt Bachelor quite offten due to the layout. I've seen the chopper haul more folks away because of USA #4 being broken than any other Responsibility Code. But I don't know why we even need #4, because #1 & #2 seem to cover it. Right?
