    Yeah, I'm guilty of giving bed information myself. Saying, "on your left" when I'm actually on YOUR right lol. But hey it's the thought that counts. I assumed all deaf/blind skiers wore that bib identifying them as such. Maybe that's not the case? Either way I think skiing with headphones is lame.

    SNOWGUNS ARE A WONDERFUL ADDITION TO THE AMBIANCE OF THE MOUNTAIN. THEY REALLY ADD TO MY PEACEFUL QUIET ENJOYMENT AND THAT FRESH FLUFF IS SO GOOD TO SKI!

    No seriously, I usually ski without music more because I wear headphones for work and don't feel like wearing them for fun too, plus I forget to bring them. When I do remember, I enjoy stock cinematic music like Two Steps From Hell. When I'm lapping blues off a high speed lift at my home mountain I'll put on a podcast - I spend way more time on the lift and it's a great timefiller there. On a day with good natural snow, I almost never have my earbuds in until it's all tracked out.

    HA, nooooo FC ...I hear ya' about the resorts, but can be socially fun. Part of my part-timer involves snowmobiling(partially)/skinning/bootposting up, planting/replacing a few circuit boards here and there, and then catching a few descents on a few remote mountains...with others is the best.

    Why should they?
    Just don't run into people and it's all good.. I don't wear a vest because I'm dyslexic.. that's ridiculous...

    I'd still rather hear the sounds around me and make a decision on what to do with them than not hear them at all.

    I actually find the sound of snow guns running very soothing.

    Maybe you SHOULD wear a vest, so other skiers/snowboarders can communicate with you appropriately.

    I think if I skied out west I would listen to music sometimes, but in the east I need to hear what noise my skis are making so I can alter my style based on conditions

    MAYBE YOU should just stay the F out of my way and not ski aggressively...
    I can see what's around me... I know whats up.. In the last 40 years I've only hit ONE person and they deserved it for coming into my line... I got this covered..
