    From the footage and comments (thanks for that btw), these guys are not as expert at judging avalanche hazard as they may think they are.
    thank you

    That wasn't a ski cut.

    Yeah because he was on a snowboard? Didn't hit that 45 perfect with a protractor? Whatever. Slope cut.

    He crossed above the slope and was pushing down to initiate. Tell me what you call it then?

    Btw it worked.

    Your boyfriend scooched slowly across the top of a start zone. (Above a highway... and infrastructure)

    Putting little or no force into the snow.

    Certainly less force than his first real turn would have if he hadn't completely hit the sweet spot.

    They did a pretty good job of assessing their colossal fuck up after they had it though. So that's awesome.

    The water bottle clipped to his pack is girl scout outing shit.

    Glad they didn't kill anyone or themselves.

    It didn't appear to be an intentional ski cut to me either. And if it was, why were they both on the slope while they were cutting it?

    The dude fucking said he ski cut it. You can see him squatting to push the snow. Check your eyes ya cunts.

    Dude isn't a pro ski patrol wanker so he isn't classically trained to get your kid's hot chocolate and finger bang your wives when you aren't around.

    Yeah you should give him free lessons then. Good luck, he doesn't listen to cunts who can't ski big lines.

    Obviously! He is a dirt bag and not ski patrol. Hopefully the judge gets that. Hopefully he shuts his mouth in court.

    Can we please adopt "scooch cut" into the snow safety lexicon?

    It's the next step after waddling slowly onto a slidepath.

    Peace. I don't speak for them but I'll fuck with haters. They are being put through the ringer and could use a few positive vibes.

    I would be interested in someone showing us a video of proper snowboard slope cut on wind hammered shallow continental snow pack at nearly 13,000 feet. Hook us up

    It sure seems like the wringer is partly of their own making. At least that's the impression I get from posts one of them made on Facebook and posts here.
