Groundhog day #????  

I can come out to play as long as its not raining. Or misting. So if its moist out, i might not come. I can leave the epicness to others.

It's tragic and my condolences to his family. Cant help but think it was the riders fault and not Blue's, and most people would likely agree. I'm pretty sure the greatest risk of death involved with skiing is driving there, followed by an out of control skier or boarder crashing into you, which is why i try to only ski when the crowds are minimal or nonexistant.

You’re like 24 hours late on the story.  Blue mountain does over 400,000 skier visits in a season..odds are there’s be about one death every two years.

Of course it was the riders fault. Would have been blues fault if the chair fell from the cable. 

 

I think the biggest cause of death is blunt force trauma.  Hitting a tree, lift tower, solid object.  In places like the Rockies and the alps I would think that avalanches are the greatest killer.

Not blaming Blue. Of course the drive is the dangerous part. Sorry if I missed where it was discussed before.

 

IMO, If there is a bar and it is not used or the rider was not wearing a helmet, the rider was not all that concerned with staying alive.
