today i was skiing on blackcomb and found a sweet spot on crystal ridge that no one had gone through yet. there was an unbelievable amount of powder and i was rippin, feeling invincible. as stupid as i was, i ended up trying to gap from a bump to a tranny, however it wasnt exactly a tranny. more like a 20 foot drop with a cat track directly below. i was fearing for my life in the air, and came down hard, hitting my head backwards. i thank god for my helmet. i was whimpering and writhing uncontrollably for a few minutes. and fuck did it hurt, my back, neck, and calves were in extreme pain. i took a shit load of tylenol and am feeling sore but not too bad now.
yesterday i hit my head pretty good on some ice, did a 180 onto a big pile of snow and didnt know there was a drop off it, i didnt have a helmet on and aparently i was making no sense at all for a few minutes after but other then extreme pain in my neck today its all good
but yeah its deff good practice to check stuff out before you hit it
so true yesterday i hit this jump that was only like a 10-15 foot gap but the jump was 10 feet high and plus what i was in the air then i gaped to landing and landed flat
"Newschool skiing is not unique to North America. This form of skiing is evident all around the world, particularly in Africa, Brazil, Mexico and in specific parts of the Indian Sea."
have u ever been to stratton? today the snow was kinda slowish so i hit the first jump and skipped the second two and went straight to the fourth ( 30, 40, 50, 60, ft jump line) and i went in to fast and almost overshot the last one...let me tell u it did nto feel good at all
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
I went to mount snow on saturday and Vermonster was sick a box down box hip transfer wall ride 3 30 ft tables down rail 4 butter boxs flat down rail and 2 10ft table top jumps if you tell me you cant get enough speed then why would they build all they did
I overshot the bottom jump at brighton last year by a lot and came down from about 25 feet. I know how it feels. Luckily I landed on my feet and took all the impact in the legs. Even so, it was still quite painful.
what do you do with your park skis? play racer? - asian_allen
helmets are great, just make sure if they are a single impact helmet, that you get a new one once you smash your head hard. I really dont know if that would have saved my head yesterday, but all i remember was me leaving the lip and setting a spin, then sliding almost all the way to the lip of the second jump at stratton, then i felt like i was gunna boot for a while, and now im here....with a concusion

1) Never fry bacon when you're naked.
2) Always keep at least one foot on the floor when it comes to eating dinner,
drinking tequila or playing cards.
3)never EVER under any circumstances eat the yellow snow.
you should rig them up with grenades, they would never steal skis again. ever.-uber scoober
