Lesson learned here: The bragging rights associated in dude ranches mind with the 10 extra feet of vert he would have skiied is probably not worth the fall of near death he went on.
It was a dumb mistake all to satisfy his egos need to go from the very top. If I was skiing with him my high 5 to him at the bottom of his would be run would have been just as enthusiastic if he dopped in where he did or 10 feet lower where that crash wouldnt have happened. That said I've made lots of dumb mistakes and got lucky, as Im sure alot of other people have on NS, give the guy a break and learn from his mistake.
