After today's session on the 40ft. re-built big air at our resort, I came to think that there is a correct way for falling without getting hurt. Here is some backround information on today: The jump along with everything else was ice due to the high winds and the freezing rain that hit before the snow came and the jump it-self was a 40ft. step-down with me using it to pratice new tricks and polish up old ones off of. Even after overshooting the jump, landing on my side and other areas of the body, I skiied away to realize that not one part of me hurt. My friend who was watching thought on the overshoot I had to have to break my arm because I landed with my arm first (given that this landing is literally ice, landing strait was hard to ride away). Maybe after all the abuse I have endured over the years has never resulted in one broken bone; maybe it was my ability to know how to fall right that led me to never gotten seriously hurt on any fall you can imagine. Does anyone else ever realized that they have taken hard hit after hard hit to only ski away with no broken bones? Like they have this ability to fall right without even being aware of it.
