Do 'mature skiers' do adventure skiing?

Do 'mature skiers' do adventure skiing?
Q: Hi, Warren. The last time I bumped into you was a couple of winters ago and you had just been over to Jupiter Jones cat tour. Do you see "mature skiers" opting for more "controlled" adventure skiing, like cats and double-black-diamond runs? I don't think we'll get many UpSkiers from any segment. It's too wild and too wind-dependent!

A: Yes, [we'll see] more controlled adventure skiing, of course. Except stay away from the bumps, because they make you turn where everyone else has and you lose your freedom.
