How is this carnage allowed to continue, while Skiing commissioners just sit idly by, fattening their bank accounts?. We have not only watched World Class Skiers die horribly on live television, but have lost Michael Kennedy,"playing Football Kennedy style" as well as Sonny Bono, and many other innocent victims of this violent "sport".
In what is essentially a human game of Russian Roulette, you have no chance for long term effects, such as CTE/Dementia etc...you just die horribly, and quickly.
I think the Government needs to step in,and slowly phase out all forms of Skiing, with the long term plan being the transition of little villages like Whistler, and the deadly Aspen Mountain Resort, into "Non Ski Resorts", where one can just enjoy the local Sightseeing, and Wildlife from the safe perch of a Gondola, enjoy saunas, and hot tubs, and go Tobogganing.
I will be back later, with an online petition, for all of you to get involved...together, we can make this happen.
