This happened about 15 years ago. And yes I have posted it here before so call it a retread. I have this touching romantic moment etched in my mind. It might be funny to some of you. At Mt. Bachelor 10 or 12 years ago, my wife stopped in the trees near the old red chair to take a quick pee. She dropped her pants and when she squatted, the snow behind gave way just enough to start her sliding backwards. She slid out of the trees and into view of the red chair before she fell over. As I remember, she was in view of the chair for a few minutes while trying to stand up and pull up her pants.
I couldn't help her since I was laughing so hard I couldn't stand up.
Wife and I spoke last night, and she thinks the "event" occurred closer to the Outback lift. Hmmm, maybe, but I doubt it. She wasn't really ready yet to talk about the whole thing, still too traumatic I guess.
PowderJukie, the only reason wife is not a widow is: 1. I had just finished and zipped up (and therefore didn’t burst my bladder and die). 2. I was standing on a nice flat spot when she dropped out of sight. At first I thought she slid just a few feet, not as far as she actually did. That gave me just enough time to compose myself before skiing down and seeing just how bad the situation was. Fortunately, the only thing hurt was her pride.
I have to say that she was as mad as a wet hornet for quite a while. Apparently, I didn't do the knight in shining armor routine quickly enough. I was laughing so hard I had trouble standing even once I got down to her.
The expression on her face as she slowly disappeared, priceless.
It really was a touching and romantic moment.
