Favorite ski sayings and one liners - Page 3

post #61 of 189
Okay, here's s'more goodies:

Point 'em downhill and let 'em buck

Arc 'em and bark 'em

Shin to win

Ski to die, die to ski

Leave no turn unstoned.

Keep your tips up (Lange poster from the '70's, of some mighty nice bumps, scantily covered...)

And, from the 20th century, pre the new shapes: Short skis suck, long skis truck.

Wow, finally some major dumpage in the PNW! Been here 28 years, and never seen a two week high pressure ridge in November. Heck, it's rarely that nice for that long in the summer!

Forgot a good one, a caption from a (well banked) Powder photo back in the '80s:

"Fall?, nah, but I drug a hand back in '72!"

"Alta is for Skiers"

Just enough in your face, without being obnoxious about it. Probably also a good way to get you car keyed if you atually put in on your bumper. I also like the Mad River Glen "Ski it if You Can", though I never have.

I was trying to set a land speed record on skiboards, caught a li'l bit more air then I meant to cresting a ridge and, uh, didn't land it :P

"Ski or be Skied"

When someone reaches the maximum of their potential in the park... and it still sucked, you say "What? Was that supposed to be funny?"

"Come to the Dark Side."

When Drinking at the bar after a day of sliding, there are 5 stages of inebriation:
1) Stall
2) Spin
3) Crash
4) Burn
5) Die

"As speed reaches infinity, time spent at intersection reaches zero"

post #74 of 189
Well this may not be a saying, but it works. A friend told me this when we were at the top of an area I had never skied before. She said just let out a load "Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" and go over the edge.
It works great. So listen for me. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

My wife, when asked where she is going will answer "DOWN".

And a tele friend of mine likes "Half a binding, half a brain" or "Free your heel, free your mind"

One of my fav's from Doug Lewis. "Thrash or Crash",
-If your in pain at least you know your still alive.
-S.P.O.R.E. Stupid People On Rental Equipt.
-"In sports it's not whether you win or loose, it's how drunk you get" Homer Simpson

“So Plake gets into this fight with another girl.” Scot Schmidt on mistakenly calling Plake a girl in License to Thrill.

“How did things go so wrong? Why am I such a looser?” Saucer Boy in Sick Sense.

Touron – (tour’ on) noun. Syn. Gaper. Derived from the combination of the words, tourist and MORON with the emphasis on MORON, because who isn't tourist at one point or other. Can be identified by any one of the following: driving the bus, from the back seat, on the black run, which they are in way over their head; sitting/stopping/resting just below a catwalk, bluff, curve, or runout; the person who falls on the surface lift at the TOP of the mountain, because you know you might be the one who has to summon ski patrol and the meatwagon; and the guy in the SUV with rental/out of state plates, pulling donuts in the parking lot because they’ve never driven on the white stuff before; etc...

Pain is temporary, but the glory of a good crash goes on forever!

- Skiing saves.

- Always get high in the gates.

- If God wanted gapers to ski, he would have given 'em a mountain.

- Slalom and GS are just events, downhill is a cult.

- Just you and me, God...right?

- You can never have too many pairs of skis.

There's more, I just can't remember it right now...

Replace "girlfriend" with "wife" and I would agree. Hopefully in Utah, ski instructors wouldn't say such things. There really are benefits to righteous living.
