OOPs!! A little bit of a mishap on Wed. We were skiing on World Cup Run, which was an easy blue cruiser. Suddenly it started to snow, and we ended up in white out conditions, unable to read the trail signs. I followed mark over to one part of the trail, thinking I was still on Blue terrain.
The suddenly... Toto, I have a feeling I'm not on a Blue square anymore. I've made mistakes like this where I was uncomfortable skiing. But finding myself on what I later found out was a steep narrow Black diamond bump run was basically impossible.
My first instinct was to try to side slip. Fact: You can not side slip a bump run. Then I realized I was messing up the moguls, and probably getting everyone very angry, so I tried to ski it.
But then , the thing that practically NEVER happens to me in my 3 years of skiing....
OOoo hoo hoo hooo... WIPE OUT!!!!!
Ouch!! Ego bruised and shattered!! But even though it was a butt plant, body intact! However, how's this for humiliation? A darling little 4 year old girl skis up to me and says "Are you alright, can I help you up?"
Nonetheless, I lived to tell the tale. What is so interesting, not one person plowed into me, even though I was in the middle of a narrow trail. I f this happened at Killington, I'd be toast!
Guess I'm not yet ready to ski a black diamond bump run in the Rockies, eh?
Displaying my gaper status with pride,
