ZenTiger Cause and Effect. Fail.

From the SST today:
The Mountain Safety Council is recommending skiers and snowboarders wear helmets after another fatality at Mount Hutt Skifield in Canterbury. A Christchurch snowboarder died after falling about 300 metres
Mate, you don't need to be demanding helmets, try recommending parachutes for plunging 300m off a cliff.

Why not urge snowfields to place more red flags and roped areas perhaps? Does the newspaper run stories like this just to wind me up? And what will that do to David?

Suppose it is a little like a fighter pilot wearing a helmet!!

No problem 'recommending', when they start forcing people to wear things because it's good for them, that gets me irritated.
