Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
The degree of carelessness required to ski around without working brakes, with forethought given to the fact that it could injure someone, means that if your ski came off and shot down the hill and killed some kid you would be culpable for manslaughter. Or absolutely liable in any other case, and probably, due to the level of negligence involved, you would get slapped with some pretty significant punitive damages as well. Just gonna throw that out there.
