    What are these guys/girls trying to prove? I think i saw that they are on Green runs yet they are tearing down them with any number of beginners around them. As someone that came into snow sports later in life, i hated people like this tearing down beside me when i was learning. Still do, not sure what they get out of it.

    Rant over.

    PS shows the value of the helmet, you are doing everything right yet some idiot trying to prove to his idiot mates how cool he is takes you out.

    I'm with you @Stick
    I well remember being 'buzzed' and spooked as a beginner, so I try to give beginners the widest possible berth. Not always slowing down if you can get far enough away to not spook them, but there is most definitely a time and a place. Some people's spatial awareness and forward anticipation leave a lot to be desired.

    I don't really really see any problem worth getting upset over. One of his snowboarder mates almost hits an instructor, yes. He should have been more observant of the instructor, but he doesn't need a public shaming.

    I tend to find that, for adults, skill is inversely proportional to the stupidity of helmet cover
