Hooray for Mr. Macho who shrugs his shoulders at the risk! Too bad for the recusers who have to rick their lives to try and save him when the risk turns bad!

He may feel happy to risk his life each time he takes to the backcountry slopes and it wouldn't concern me if he was the only one affected, but it's selfish and irresponsible to put rescuers' lives at risk when they try and find him and save his life. The thrill of the game is not worth gambling with lives.
