In March I'm going out to Park City with a few friends. It's the first time I'll be skiing anything outside of the east coast, so lift accessible back country will be a must do. Anyway, I'm happy just to be going, but today I got home from skiing and got the talk about how I need to use good judgement. So I said that I wouldn't be going out of bounds and my dad completely flipped shit. Long story short, he's pissed that I even questioned that and "pushed the boundaries" by assuming I could ski the inbounds terrain. Back in the day his friend got caught up in an avalanche inbounds and died. Times have changed though, but he still thinks that I'm gonna get swept up and never seen again. I've been skiing my whole life and am a good skier on any terrain, but by no means do I disrespect the back country. I know my limits and know that bad things can happen to the best of us.
Anyway, how can I convince him to trust my judgement and realize that patrolled bowls and chutes are a lot less dangerous than they were in the 80s? I'll be skiing them anyway I just want him to have some peace of mind.
