Hmmm, I elect to ski breakable so rarely ...

Aye, that was kind of my point.

On a snowboard crust is easier, but some stuff is still very dangerous. The best approach is defensive, which basically means for once riding "in the back seat". That's true with old style boards as well as more modern tapered stuff. Then go somewhere else. I don't think slope angle makes a lot of difference.

@philwig, in general you are quite correct, but on skis slope angle makes a huge difference.
