D’s safety tips
“ The fracture line was actually 20′ above me and I didn’t know what was going on behind me…I only went fast enough to keep control and not sink into the snow and give me time to find my line. I did go to the right to drive out… Don’t try and go straight across, keep your sled level with the surface, don’t try and turn too sharply across the face, you could catch a ski or a wave could hit you from the side…No matter how much experience, how careful you think you are this could happen.”
