I don't think the resort has much to do with it. Personally, I believe it is an issue of lack of education. Younguns these days do not know the code. Maybe more are trying it on their own with friends who have not been educated by parents who enjoy the winter sports and knew the code. With the coverage on TV their are more newbies coming out, not taking classes, and learning from their friends who learned it on their own.
Snowboarders have a blind side but the talented ones knows how to board safely. Part of it is the same thing that gave boarders everywhere a bad name: it wasn't boarding, it was the demographic that took to it. We refer to it as YAMIC (young,adult,male,immortality,complex) i.e.-teenagers that don't think, do what they want, think they are invincible, and basically don't care about how their actions affects others. This same demographic were skiing before boarding was invented, they were bad boys on two sticks back then. When they took to boarding they were more easily recognizable and we blamed it on what we recognized: the board. Bad wrap!
Try skiing in AZ where the desert dwelling drive up to the snow with no idea of what it takes. Some don't have the proper clothing. No gloves, no eye protection (this one gets me, with this sun?) They don't take a lesson, can't load and unload a lift. Trust me, the carnage I have seen on any river anywhere does not hold a match to what takes place slope side in AZ.
Whether U Think U Can, or Think U Can't; U R Right!
