Out on the slopes

As they should be!The penalties for "driving" were weak, even at the .1% limit.. No harm, no foul then.. But, the consequences for killing someone while drunk behind the wheel were quite a bit higher than this..
I saw a woman at Stratton a few days ago. She came down Black Bear which is a black (really a blue). On slick ice, not edge able by mere mortals - she was flying low and I was standing below watching. Nobody was skiing center of the trail... it was too icy. She didn't loose her edge hold at all and I guess her speed at 40 - 45. She made it seem so effortless and completely in control. I was impressed to put it mildly, my mind went to this thread. Was it safe?
