For example the comments about going into surf threads and commenting were actually directed at Indo, but because you had posted after Indo had and this moved the forum on to a new

Now, don't get me wrong. I don't want to say you're bad or anything like that but I seriously think you need help. Either that or your browser is busted. Or mine is...

The vast majority of avalanches occur on slopes averaging 35-45 degrees. How far do you have to tip your plate until the pancakes come a tumbling? The average intermediate run at a resort is 30°, and an advanced 35°. Avalanches generally occur on slopes between 32°-45°, but are certainly not limited to this range. Lower angle slopes are safer since gravity’s effect will be diminished. Very steep

What the hell are you talking about??? Are yo even reading the same thread that I am? I'm not saying anything at all about YOU! The only time I even quoted you is when you said it was out of bounds when indeed every news release on the Hakuba avy said it was inbounds

  8. Huh? What are you talking about? Who is Fatts... And who cares if he comments or not? huh? did I miss something here, again?
  9. Originally Posted By: Fattwins This did not happen inbounds it happened in the Back Country. You sure? The article I read called it a "course".

There are usually posts (often a small shack or other) near the mouth of any course (or trouble area) that may be problematic during the season. Especially if it might be subject avalanche conditions but also at popular points where kids hop out of the park. Not stationing a minimum wager at these points with snow condition inf

Courses deemed to be in danger of avalanches will be closed off by a "????"(Do not enter) sign, not an avalanche warning sign (though I still maintain that some resorts un
  11. Yeah, I read her post. And I feel sorry for her. And If I were around when that happened I PROMISE that guy would have a ski or board permanently embedded in his -- Well he'd have a brand new body-part to deal with - let's put it that way. But am I going to start wearing helmets because of it? Nope! I calculate that I've spent about 800 long days (actually) on the slopes so far in my lifetime with more coming. The number of times I was hit by another skier or snowboarder: Once when I was 6 years old. The number of times I've run into anyone else (going more tha
  12. I'd want one in a pipe or for woods... I wouldn't ware one on any runs I've ever been on tho - unless there were like, rocks or something... Heh! That would be embarrassing - and pointless. Kinda like wearing a helmet on a mamachali. :-/
