The one scare that sticks with me is a person above yelling "runaway ski" . I had a Sat. am class of kids and this little girl had fallen and to help her I had put one ski up hill of her and the other below her. When I saw the runaway all I could do is throw my foot up and forward , the next thing I know is my Dynamic VR17 has been nail about a foot in front of the toe piece and all you can see is wood core and splinters everywhere. The damned thing literally blew my ski apart , but the kid didn't even know it happened . All she did is look up with this grin and want to ski , I don't know if it would have hit her but It was too fricken close , I still see her face and think about that.
