Double Ejected at high speed first run, 3ft pow hit a ditch or something snowing heavy. I landed about 20ft away faceing uphill and smack! My ski hit me in the cheek. I was a little stuned for a while thought I was going to pass out but gathered enough streangth and took 30min or so to find my other ski wallowing around in the deep powder. I was out of bounds so had to traverse over to a run to get to a chairlift. The run was a long groomer I never made one turn just straight to the chair to get to lodge level to have my face looked at. I thought I may have just broke my cheek bone it sure hurt. I arived at the chair were there was a line up already. every one was looking at me. I thought they were just thinking now theres a cool looking skier. then the lady in front of me started to scream!!!! I was whats up with that!! a guy said have you seen your face man. He showed me in some mirrored sunglasses and my entire face was Red with blood. i was all white eyes and teeth the rest was streammed red from the wind blowing it across my face as I made the decent to the chair. I finely got to the first aid shack and they fixed me up. I needed 8 stiches and have the scare as a reminder to this day. Must have looked narly a nice day skiing and the chain saw masicure skier covered in blood casualy comes skiing in like nothings wrong.
