Unfortunately...been there. Done that.  

And sometimes it doesn't even require a bad partner.

You learned to look and see if you partner's shoes are tied, right?

Great article.  It reminds me of a lesson I leaned from a Canadian mountain guide many years ago.  As I was stumbling around in knee deep snow trying to get to lunch he told me I needed to walk like a cat instead of a dog.  You know how a cat can be walking along and just freeze at any moment because it is always perfectly balanced on at least two feet. I stopped leaning forward and using my momentum to bulldoze through the deep snow and the postholing instantly became a lot easier.

I probably would have got more out of this if I didn't have to sit all the way in the back.

You could have sat closer if you hadn't brought just one ski pole.
