I mastered falling my first day skiing. Everything else, I'm still working on! :

"I race" usaully followed by "an I'm the goffiest, non technical, most barely in control, but still decently fast person down the course." Or something to that effect.

Agreed.

However... normaly people talk about people like you (excellent skiers that can do what most humans will never be able to do)... but who do you talk about?

I try and play the person's game, and answer with the most arrogant attitude possible.

Example: "Listen buddy, I'm pretty freaking extreme, ok? You don't even wanna know me"

Then promptly walk off, acting extreme.

[quote=Tyrone Shoelaces;598149]heh...all of the above.

fell where I drew the red squigly. just couldn't hold the edge after dropping the first ledge, and smashed my tips into the lookers right wall


six stiches in arm
bruised kidney
a few contusions
subluxed ribs.
was back skiing the next weekend, but just groomers.

the last person I know to fall in upper-cham died. Before that, another buddy broke his back. Glad you were skiing the next weekend, tyrone.
God Bless the guys who don't let their accomplishments taper-off.
If anyone were to actually ask me; "how do you ski?" I would probably have to reply; Not like I used to, but the same as I want to fifty years from now.

wow...sorry to hear that Samurai. I think I've heard someone tell me about that story when i first started skiing Kirkwood a few years back.

However, this run in the picture and that I'm talking about is not Upper Cham. It is Patrolman's. Patrolman's is directly next to Upper Cham. Patrolman's is one chute to skier's right of Upper Cham. And when you're in Lower Cham, look directly above you, and Patrolman's is right there.

Got ya. My memory was looking for the double drop, but I figured it was early season. But that left rock in your shot is what you see as you traverse into lower cham. out of view, to the right, is the rock that gives me more shivers than any other rock at the wood. Didn't even like to see it anymore when I skied off of 6. The geology is blatantly obvious, but forgive me, it's been a while.

Anyway, it's nice to see your shots coming out of there. You (although we have never met) bring back a lot of memories. Usually good ones. Keep it up.
I miss the cheeze-graters and the fat-to-flat that make the wood what it's notorious for, especially when equated with the K-factor. I think the wood is the only place in the world I have steadily skied that had terrain literally dissappear and terrain you never saw before suddenly become doable. Not to mention late spring when the snow melts- giving a third perspective to the place. Chutes become bridges.
Anyway, rambled there, sorry for the thread-poach... Keep 'em coming!

How do I ski? One word baby: UGLY!
post #75 of 80
Watch me ski is pretty much like watching a rather vicious dog fight.

I know the answer to this question ... katy perrey taught me.

question: "can you ski, how well do you ski" (etc.)
answer: "I can get off the chair unassisted." and smile
post #77 of 80
I suppose someone may have said so previously (I haven't been following along) but I've never seen myself skiing, so it's hard to describe myself doing it.

If I had a good day, I'd say something like, "I felt really on top of my skis today." If it was a bad day I'd say, "I was stinkin' up the hill."

Someone effectively said that for a middle aged guy, under perfect conditions, I have a half way decent GS turn on a light blue groomer. Pretty radical huh.

At this point in life I'm just happy to be here.

Got new skis, got new boots, and we open on Wednesday. Be there!!

I'm above average on Loveland's Lift 2, and below average on Lift 9.

+3, unless I'm trying to get, um, some female company, then I'm pretty ok.
