So im at home, reading newschoolers and getting stoked for opening day at my home mountain (holiday valley) when i stumble upon traveling circus. this only increases the stoke factor which is already off the charts so i am inspired to go outside and ski my back yard set up. im stomping most of my tricks and am in a pretty good place, when i went up for my last hit though i caught and edge and fell forward. normally this wouldnt be a problem but for some reason my pole stuck in the ground infront of me. last thing i remember seeing is the butt end of a ski pole coming straight at my right eye ball. i dont know how a was able to turn away from it but im certain that it could have been fatal if i hadnt. just wondering if anyone else on ns has been assaulted by thier poles before and to what extent.
