SKI quotes - Page 3

post #61 of 77

I did my first half pipe snowboard competition at age 58.  The first run wasn't pretty and I wiped out (the second run actually went pretty well().  My wife asked what happened.  I replied, "I got two feet from the lip and ran out of experience."


And my all time two favorite quotes:


"When you're over the pick up speed"


"If you're not living on the edge..... you're taking up too much room"

"Milkin' the giraffe"


A shop mate's discription of exaggerated, slow-motion, high handed, powder pole plants.


The quote is useless without the pantomime pole plants.

"There is no such thing as a ski buddy on a powder day".

post #64 of 77

Powder day at Alpine Meadows. Several young women load a chair (detachable 6). A patroller and his trainee dog are waiting in the patrol line for the next chair. As the chair with the young women takes off, the dog jumps aboard, leaving patroller behind. Says I to the patroller--"No friends on powder days."

From Squatty Schuller: 

Avoid the big grey things [points to lift towers]

Avoid the big green things [points to the trees]

Aim for the white area.

When we would ski out of bounds and try to out run the ski patrollers if they saw us, "you can't out run Motorola".

Don't ski the trees ski the spaces between them.

When looking for this thread, I found the old one.....made me chuckle just a little bit.

When deciding which run to follow and where to go........from my young daughter:


"Wherever the wind blows us".

"Don't be paranoid. Everything you say is being recorded. Everything you do is being filmed. Everywhere you go you are being followed. But don't be paranoid." My father when we were skiing at Grand Targhee in the early 1970s.

Both of these will make many people a bit timid.

What ever you do do not fall where we are going.
Or; Do not fall here.
