The problem with early season BC skiing is the lack of base. Some spots need a couple feet to safely ski it, so much deadfall.
It's not even an issue of catching a ski under something, bindings are pretty reliable these days...The concern is what do you hit after (or as) you're falling!
A buddy of my snapped off his whole elbow hitting a barely covered boulder after a fall.
