    I've stepped it back because I know my limits as I age. My concern is more about my kids than me. They're 20something boys and they push the envelope at times. I've schooled them to best of my abilities, but as we know there is inherent risks in what we do no matter how calculated we try to be.

    I don't like bc skiing with them because I'm so concerned. I actually have to mentally prepare to do something like that with them as opposed to going with friends. It almost not enjoyable unless it's a spring bomber snowpack. Even then, warming is a concern.

    I certainly found my emotions having kids. Those that don't have kids have no clue what it's like.

    Even if no one loves you or depends on you--consider disability insurance. If you can get it.

    This. I think I spend a stupid amount on disability insurance. It is my rationalization to keep playing.

    Just get specific occupation coverage if you don’t want to learn new skills for a shitty job.

    Reminds me to have my wife cancel her policy soon. She doesn’t do that occupation anymore.
    I’ve just decided to be a middle aged somewhat depressed somewhat anxious fucktard until the end.

    Can’t believe this thread has gone 7 pages. Risk is and always will be so different from person to person

    But it makes sense to discuss it and perhaps see different viewpoints on things.

    If you get seriously hurt and spend weeks in a hospital and a year or two in recovery, or die, IMO that's too much risk. If you are constantly getting hurt - small or big - you are making bad choices and/or probably don't have the skills you think you do, dial it back. I think that was me and most people in their early twenties. Peer pressure and Kodak courage always season the choices made too.

    And then there are people who are on a different mental plane than 99% of us and don't care about consequences - they are suicidal, dumb, or psychopaths - just avoid those people if you can, ha.

    Risk is not a big philosophical debate IMO.

    You must be new here.

    There's a 290 page thread about station wagons and 507 pages on the conundrum of what constitutes upstate NY. I'm sure we've got at least a few dozen more pages of risk discussion in us.

    And we can always count on someone complaining about the thread to keep it going.

    there's a thread for complaining. it's got more pages than the station wagon and upstate ny threads combined!

    we're very good at complaining, it might even be our superpower.

    This place is dysfunctional as fuck. A discussion on risk has no place in a ski forum.

    I can't agree with that. At least it has some depth beyond "check me out, look at my line, blah blah blah."

    Risk taking is a mental illness. So you're all mentally retahded! Can you still say that? Well, being a retahd myself I have an excuse I guess

    It’s an opinion. Feel free to disagree.

    I assumed he was just trolling to try to get this thread fired up again.

    There is a saying about assuming. No, just pointing out how odd it is to question a discussion on risk in a ski forum.

    Kinda baffled why you think it's odd. This is a place designed specifically to discuss skiing. Skiing is inherently risky. There are three separate subforums in here for threads about situations where the risks went poorly. A thread that directly discusses risk isn't unusual. This certainly isn't the first one.

    Not how odd it is to have a discussion on risk in a ski forum, but how odd it is to question that discussion.
