All of what you said is very true, but this part was the very best. I will be getting my kids off the greens as soon as possible!

The whole fault with this lies with an entitled "I own the slopes" point of view. Particularly prevalent among males of this age on skis or board.
Just to clarify, I am not blaming the music. That would be a useless approach. Its the combination of people who don't care about their legal responsibilities on the slopes and music that is dangerous. Its always about personal accountability in my opinion.

I will say though.....many states have made it illegal to operate an automobile with headphones/earbuds on. Colorado is one such state. Mitigating risk at high speeds requires as many senses as possible on crowded slopes.

In case it wasn't clear I was being sarcastic and facetious about snowboarders being aholes.

It is completely a mindset thing. If you don't care about others on the slope and view it as your 'right' to go as fast as you want, then there will be trouble. With a helmet on and going at nominal speed, even without music, I didn't hear either one of the skiers who hit me from behind.

Now I turn it up, go faster and defer if I see any possible trouble spots coming up.

I was in this weird eddy once and my paddling friend boofed onto me and pushed me into a wall where I swam. Can I press charges?
