That's brutal, unless you were out skiing with brakes that you knew didn't work. If you brake broke in a fall and the ski hit someone, well that's just damn unfortunate.
I had a fairly huge yardsale on some Hellbents and ripped a heelpiece (and brake) off the ski. Not much stops a ski like that, it ended up maybe 1000ft away from me down in a gully. A patroller even offered to ski down and get it for me.
