Davluri, Take a look at the weekend crowds at any ski area and look down the mogul runs especially and you'll see bodies strewn all over the place. I used to ski at Camelback and Pharoah in particular comes to mind. Now the darn thing was marked as a "blue" run if I recall correctly, but around about 11 AM it was anything but that, having developed some serious icy moguls, some serious crowd issues, and bodies in every direction (i.e., instantly developing obstacles right in front of you). Every idiot who rented decided they were clearly able to ski the damn thing, it was only a blue run, right? But clearly it was no longer a blue run at this point, it was really a black run in that section, or maybe only for the truly insane.
Here at this place, come this weekend, Black Bear and Marmot will be full of bodies as well. Not icy moguls, of course, but still full of bodies. They are marked as black runs, but they are moguled up right now because they are never groomed and we haven't had sufficient snow to fill them in. The tourons will be doing snow plow turns down them, traversing back and forth across the entire run, en masse, like ducks in a shooting gallery, at the same time as the true hot shots will be attempting to actually ski the zipper line. Great fun. (I already had the pleasure of some family who had to stay together doing this gang ski thing today on Big Ravine in the fog....Woman saw the need to cut right in front of me in spite of having a HUGE trail and plenty of room, because, my god, her 20 friends were stopping over there!....)
I will be staying home for this scene.
But, anyway, my point is, that people on vacation, have this tendency to go down stuff they clearly shouldn't be on. Whether they can't read their maps, don't have a map, can't read a sign, don't look at the sign, or just don't have a clue, I don't know, but I do know that there is a huge chunk of the skiing public that are clearly a danger to themselves and others.
