Of course we fall... (we just don't admit it!)When I was working in NZ, it was customary that if an instr saw another instr fall, they'd holler "2 Jugs"! Every Friday evening, we'd gather at the local pub, and everyone would pay up the jugs of beer they owed for the week. For some, it was costly. For others, it was a cheap night!
Last Wednesday, I was at Copper Mtn, testing skis with a bunch of K2 reps. We had the hill to ourselves, as it had not yet opened to the public. First day out, new skis, about my 5th run or so. I had just swapped skis with another guy, and figured, "the bindings will be ok"... Famous last words... At about 40 MPH, I ejected out of both heels right in the middle of the steepest part of the hill. About 100 yds later, I slid to a stop. I guess I was lucky that a) there was no one else around me when the wheels fell off, and b) only about 5 guys got to see it! But hey! No harm, no foul!
Got that first fall of the season out of the way... Now it's time to have fun!
