Careless snowboarder deserves what he gets (Letter)

A couple of weeks ago I heard on the news that a snowboarder went down a ski slope in California. The area that he went down was roped off because there were chances that it could cause an avalanche.

It did cause an avalanche. The snow was right on his tail.

How stupid could this person be? It could have killed several people. These people who are in charge of checking these places out don't put up these ropes for decoration. They put them up for a reason.

According to the news that guy is going to be prosecuted and have a hefty fine to pay. I also think that he should be barred from that ski slope.
