    Sad to hear again. Hate to say I was expecting that but with conditions being firm that is probably the highest risk.

    Can't imagine skiing a mogul run that fast and "hitting several trees" but after Sugarloaf death I don't know what to think anymore.

    I had a scary experience at Mount Saint Anne when I was in high school ....a 100yd slide through an icy not quite mature mogul field.
    Meaning the troughs weren't too deep so I kept sliding .

    Conditions are at their most unsafe right now. Warned everyone I was with at Smuggs on Friday to not ski fast on trail edges.

    Very sad, but I heard he was straightening Racers and tried to slow down by snowplowing and lost control. Condolences to the family.

    Very true a little snow can hide some nasty ice , Elk was smoking on Friday greens were very fast

    Racers Edge is a pretty steep trail. I've slid down it a million times, carefully. And yes they groom it regularly now.
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    Sad, yes be careful out there, I slipped early in the morning at Hunter, but was able to maintain my balance. The snow blown to recover from February is mostly just a veneer over solid ice. Always be ready to lose an edge even on mellow, soft groomers, evil is only inches away. Easy to get lulled into a false sense of security, especially early in the day.
