So whats the worst ski related advice you have gotten from someone or read somewhere?
So i work graveyard at 24 hr fitness some nights, and i read alot of fitness mags, and stuff, and i came accoss an article in Mens Fitness that was titled "staying safe in the backcountry". One of the tips involved avoiding avalanches. It said that one wants to make sure and stick to steeper terrain because snow will not stick to it and so wont cause an avalanche. It went on to say that safe spots are by rocks or small outcroppings of trees. so uh, i wonder if the editors tested those theories out
Sagging pants, wide stance, fat skis, powder in trees, corked three's with steeze.
you have to be on like steeper than 45 degrees for that whole steepness theory to work and i imagine most people reading a fitness mag and then going to ski backcountry aren't skiing something more than 45
it was my first time trying backflips this season, i turn around to ask these two guys who looked fairly good if they thought the jump was flip-able. They told me that they were doing doubles off of it, i called them assholes, went for it, ate shit.
