i call bs
Went to World ski Invitational this year first time to Whistler ever in the winter. 3rd run in the pipe fell on my hand hurt alot couldn't hold my pole. trained the rest of the day with one pole. Second day of training I train for 2 hours and my coach tells me to go get my hand checked out. So I go to the hospital in Whistler and get my hand checked out get X rays. SEE JEFF SCHMUCK IN THE HOSPITAL LIMPING (claim). wait another hour, get my x ray, turns out i broke my 5th menicarple and other stuff in my right hand. Doctor freezes my hand puts it back in place after 2 more hours. Tells me that I can't compete at all. So I said alright I won't walked out of the hospital with my cast on Competed the next day, I duct taped my hand to my cast. Made semi finals. Competed the next day and made WSI pipe finals. Take that doctor! So if I would have listened to my doctor I wouldn't have had that experience. Worst ski trip ever? No. Best Ski Trip ever? YES.
The way I see it, the trips where the most random/gay/crazy events happen are the best!
I drove from Toronto to Tremblan (about a 7 hr drive) one night to go skiing with a few buds.
We get to the hill at 8am and the south face lifts were down almost all day. We the equivalent of 1.5 runs and stood in line for the rest. They had only one lift operational. At 1pm they offered a free ticket for another day that season. I was only in town for that one day, so it was useless to me.
2 days of my life. 14 hrs of driving. About 6 hours in lift lines. All for 1.5 runs at crappy Tremblant.
That trip sucked sweaty ballsack.
