    the area they ski is skied all to hell on a regular basis well worn skin tracks easy access you can assess the avalanch danger however you want sure J shoot is there for a reason
    ^^^^^and yeah that's a funny story in my opinion somepeople over react but in this case it was search and rescue and the sherriff call it how you want to plenty of people have been fucked up there over the years
    my opinion is they weren't doing anythign wrong judge how you want

    He hasn't learned since last year:

    Step-1 - fluff your feathers/pound your chest about how radical you are.
    Step-2 - get called out for not conveying the risks (or your risk tolerance) to others.
    Step-3 - walk it back by: (a) further beating your chest about how radical you are as well as an excellent judge of terrain, snowpack and weather, and (b) qualifying your post by saying trust your own judgement, etc.

    That would be fine (sort of), if he didn't repeat this pattern over and over again. He's the anti-Bruce Tremper, IMHO.

    Until you get caught in a slide, you always made the right assessment.

    What exactly is this event in downtown Denver tomorrow? Is it a contest among pros? A contest for the general public? Can anybody hit the rails? Iím sort of thinking about taking my 4-year-old, but not if itís going to be dumb.

    Even if he did know what could happen, teenagers think they are invincible and nothing bad will ever happen to them because the world revolves around them. The worst thing that has ever happened in most of their lives so far is that someone stole their lunch money.
