Replying to 1st time skiing with the girlfriend
So my girlfriend was interested in why i love to ski so much so i decided id take her with me and she thought it was a great idea. I put her on a pair of beginner skis (my mom's) and cranked the DIN down to save her legs from any issues. We drove up to Jiminy Peak yes it sucks but its the closest mountain worth going to after 12, and not a bad place to learn. SO a couple runs in on the "Novice" lift and shes loving it and doing surprisingly good. Stopping on a dime and turning with better form than expected. So a little later she decided she wanted to go to the top which the terrain isn't that difficult so we went up. Were going and doing fine, she handled the steeper terrain with no problem and again ill say she was doing awesome, i felt good that she was sharing my feeling about skiing and that i have a partner to go with when nobody else wants to ride. Anyways back to the story, so nearly halfway down it gets to some icier sections, pretty bad ice that an experienced east coast ice rider would kno just ride through it. Ice to sticky snow to more ice she took a really bad fall (first fall on the top) bindings didn't release but the angle they prob shouldn't have, and her leg hurt her really badly. She had to be taken down by the ski patrol which were assholes basically just made her sign a bunch of paperwork saying "don't sue us" didn't help her leg at all, finally i pulled my car around and there saying shit like i hate honda's, make her sit in the back seat and rearrange all my shit. I just wanna get the fuck out of there at this point pull into the gas station and put her in the front seat like she wanted to so she didn't have skis poking her in her face. Overall shitty experience with ski patrol they are horrible, fucking icy conditions ruined the night, and were waiting on MRI results, the doctors think she tore her ACL or MCL.
FUCK,,, i need some positive vibes or something
just thought id share my story.
