Her last name is Teodosio, don't know her first name.

Tragic.

 

The daughter of Summit County judges Linda and Thomas Teodosio died Saturday afternoon after a skiing accident in West Virginia.

Andrea Rose Teodosio, 22, died at Pocahontas Memorial Hospital in Buckeye, W.Va., said Laura Parquette, a spokeswoman for Snowshoe Mountain Ski Resort, where the accident occurred.

Parquette said Teodosio was injured while skiing on the slopes and transported by a medical team to the hospital in central West Virginia.

Very sad news. 

I have a 22 year old.

I can not imagine it.

Snowshoe WV is the most dangerous place I've ever been, half of the skiers are TeXas Tuckers, the trails are narrow, crossing and in poor condition by noon due to the amount of traffic. I know Saturday is crowded everywhere but there's not much going right at Snowshoe.

 

This is so sad.

Ott, I'm so sorry to hear this. 

 

How has your season been?  It has been a long time since we heard from you, and I hope you still found some redemption in Ohio's winter.  I'm looking forward to May 6, and your 79th. year of Epic Skiing.

Well, May 6th went by a couple of weeks ago and being 79 isn't by far as bad as I thought it would be a few years ago, besides what can you do?

 

About a dozen years ago or so my friend Bob Barnes urged me to try the new shaped skis allowing me to carve a lot easier. I wasn't so sure, having read about celebrities and others hitting skis and locally observing a few skiers with the new skis skiing into a fence at the side of the slope. They started the carve OK but in the last part of the turn they would sit back and ride the tails, unable to get off edge and start a new turn.

 

But I relented. I was skiing 205 strait so I bought Atomic Beta Carve 28  in 200 cm length.Base to base with my old skis they were the same width underfoot and a mere one quarter in wider at the shovel, one eight inch on each side and only one eight of an inch at the tail. So in a pure carve the radius is over 90 feet left turn and the same for the right turn, that takes a slope a couple hundred feet wide to to make pure carved turns, and the terrain had to fairly steep to sustain the speed to not fall off the edges.

 

Going to 170s corrected that and I was happy for several years but when I turned 75 I bought a pair of 150/11 on ebay and they have done well by me.

We had a great snow winter in the east and midwest and I got out most days the sun was shining.

 

I am healthy and I intend to at least make it through next season, maybe even beyond. The new ski technology has added years to the skiing life of older people, thanks Bob.
