Re: BFS Proponent Rescued at Sea
Personal responsibility vs. irresponsible foolhardiness.
I also think skiers who go out of bounds and have to be rescued should have to pay the full cost of their rescue.
I was a professional ski patrolman for 12 years for NY State. You have no idea how many a-h skiiers I had to go out after AT NIGHT who would very likely have frozen to death because they were stupid enough to jump a rope late in the afternoon after a trail was closed and swept. People have jumped on ski lifts, going under ropes after they closed and have been found stiff in the morning. Irresponsibility abounds. When linked to pure ignorance of consequences, it can be a problem.
