    Be Careful out there...

    Me, my GF and a buddie of mine went DHing this weekend at our favorite place in Japan. As we where getting ready to go up the Ski Lift...someone says "A course is closed". We had just gone down it and asked why. They said that someone had crashed. So as we were kicking it on the lift, Helo's were flying around.....trying to medivac the person out. I remember thinking "man, I hope they are alright". Later that evening we found out the person was a pro, #2 guy on one of the Japanese teams, he crashed on A course and was dead before they could get him on the backboard. I am not sure what happened...but I do know A course is a super fast course, with plenty of rocks, roots and drops. careful. I see some guys wearing helmets without hooking the chin strap, some not wearing goggles, no knee pads. Where your gear and ride within your skills.
