Tales of woe - The ski damage thread

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Major damage to skis is a bummer.  Share your tales of woe to soften the blowfrown.gif

 

The ski shown below is a 165 Rossi SL with less than one day on it.  My son was skiing on groomed and found the only rock on the run.  He didn't fall when he hit the rock, but made a comment to his coach that he thinks that he "got a core shot"

Damaged skis ?

 

Try  this and teach this to your son.

 

On first run all skiers should think; warm up and "reconnaissance" !

 

Have boots unbuckled and just let skis flow and you feel the quality of the snow.

While doing this,,,, look around at slope for dangerous articles, spots, varied ski conditions, spots to avoid etc,,,

 

On second run inspect run from edge to edge ( with boots still unbuckled)

 

Now that you have seen the only rock on slope, seen the hoses from snowmaking, seen the ice, seen the fallen pole etc,, you are ready to ski.

 

Buckle boots, remember that only rock, that pole, that dip and ski!

 

Sorry about skis.
