Post your best/fav pic of you skiing.

Here is the best of the few I have ( I wish it showed some of the mountain too)
I don't know why but I am not seeing any pictures on my computer. How do you view and post a picture?

My skiing has never been well represented through points :P

my best results score wise were in the 60s in tech and 44 in Speed but I never ever could get 2 runs through so my points hover round the 90 mark for slalom, 100 for GS, 78 and 84 for SuperG and DHC (1 run= fun)

at canada games I was 18th in SG, 20th in Slalom and 21st in GS (always top Canada District)

Thinking about it makes me wanna race some more

I like the fact that you only ski Atomic But why is your GS12 191cm and not FIS legal 183cm?
post #219 of 360
I actually run on 186, I had 191 last year for line purpose, Fis is legal 180 and above for men :P

Here is a picture of me skiing down the perfect spring corn of Vulcan Villarica in Chile's Lakes District. Even with the rental gear I had a blast.

Just kidding, kinda...

Anyways no wonder the NS people do not get along here. They are typically a bunch of dbags over there, everyone's there to save the world. Although discussion here is certainly geared differently, you guys are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. It's nice to see that.

dude i'm 12

Where at Squaw is this? I don't recognize it. Granite Chief maybe?

It's just a reminder for me of what a great feeling it was to have put all that rehab work in following surgery and have it pay off. Cause sometimes when you're in the middle of rehab it just doesn't feel like you'll ever get back to where you were. Hell, even on the climb up to this peak, I didn't think I'd make as the swelling and lack of range of motion that still resided in my knee kept me from barely being able to climb up and over some rocky mixed climbing areas near the top. My friends had to literally grab my hands and pull me and my gimp knee over some sections.

click on pics to make 'em bigger.

photo as I came out the bottom (taken April '05):

and for giggles, what my lower leg looked like afterwards. I learned to not cinch the brace down too much after this

Congrats!!! That's fabulous!

I know the feeling. I've just gotten back on my skis after a 4 year break due to a fall through a deck causing a dislocated shoulder and a knee injury that finally I had total knee replacement this past March 09.

I just started sking again and it is awesome!! What a gift!

I don't have any pics yet, but I can't wait till I do!
