Most embarrasing Ski moment..

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
OK, taking a lead off of Phil's post (at my expense) anyone care to share a good story at their own expense, Come on' it's 38 and raining here in Jersey, I need a good laugh!

Another one at my expense. I was new at skiing and learing to get off the chair, I was skiing with Client's. As I got off the chair, I pole planted over the client's ski sent him flying and he took out the other Client who got stuck on the chair in mid air!

Racing in a super-G I came over a blind rise to find a crow standing in my line ... The bird started to fly away but I was going too fast and ended up hitting him - feathers flew everywhere. Given the speed I was going and the slight hesitation I missed the next gate.

Got heckeled and decided that killing a crow while skiing has to be bad ju-ju so I quit for the day without petitoning for a re-run.

While heli-sking in Canada with a bunch of my buddies, and cruising about a foot and a half of powder, we came around a small patch of trees and spooked about a dozen cariboo just below treeline. While watching them lope through the deep snow in amazement I plowed right into a pile of rather fresh cariboo crap. Needless to say, everybody but me thought it was pretty funny.

No, that's not where my name comes from.

This would have been embarrassing if I wasn't in so much pain...

In the spring of '98, during the first hour of the first morning of my first visit to Telluride, at the top of a lift...getting off, somehow my left tail got hooked up with the ski of the skier to my left on the chair. As we skied off the ramp, I went right and he went left. So did the tail of my left ski.otating my leg. I went down in a blinding (literally) flash of white pain. There went my ACL...

I was patrolling one day with all of my ski patrol gear on, so I'm real conspicuous. I found a patch of nice, steep new that led down from one run to another. It was in full view of a popular intermediate lift which was filled with skiers. I dropped into the steep shot, made a series of magnificent turns with snow flying and was feeling quite full of myself and very aware that all eyes must be on me as I dazzled the masses. I got to the bottom which was a fairly flat, groomed run and as I turned onto it with visions of myself featured by Warren Miller I caught an edge and ate it big time. Total yard sale. The audience on the chair had fun with that. I still cringe when I think about it and it was probably about 1975. Another lesson in humility.
