earn to ski without pole planting. and simple use your poles in the lift line swap out the baskets and plant it the pow.
Had some really dumb ones, I should really use shorter poles when I'm messing around.
Once went way too deep, decided to try and hip check it, somehow jammed one of my poles into the ground between my skis and nutted myself on it.
Another time, about to set a spin off a pretty steep windlip but instead I jammed my pole-tip into the lip then skied into the grip, hit me in the chest and just about dropped me. Stupid poles. I just feel like a total goober when I ski without them though...
That would be your maxilla.
Lower jawbone is the mandible.
Either way... ow.
