Stay high - stay dry.

Get the *&%# out of my way!

In reference to the skiers code as it pertains to skiing closed runs: "It's really more of a suggestion."
(borrowed or stolen from Captain Jack Sparrow.)

My least favorite: "If you want to improve your skiing you should get some new boots."

How about:


"If you ain't fallin you're not tryin hard enough"

"Every turn is a sign of fear"

"Silly rabbit tricks are for kids"

There's no such thing as bad weather, only bad equipment.


It especially applies to the "it's cold out" crew.

"Short skis suck, big skis truck"

"There are no friends on a powder day"

This comes out of Big White BC.


"Grays on Trays."  Fitting for  old snowboarders.

From our very own Bob Barnes


There are two different kinds of conditions - Good and good for you.


If you want a good taste of powder, you've got to eat some.



post #112 of 189

Several favorites, some semi-famous, some not:


Scooter LeCouter: "Turn the mothers."

My MRG friend Steve: "You can ski the grass."

My Madesimo friend Luigi (much more sage than it seems): "Concentrate on what you're doing."


And my all-time favorite, from a guide named JT at Great Canadian Heliskiing, a great guy, always smiling. JT skied every day, either as a patroller at Norquay or at Great Canadian. Must have logged at least a thousand epic powder days in his career. After a pretty good (though to us guests, near-epic) shot in ankle-deep through some trees, a smiling JT screams:

 "Man, I love skiing."

When someone tells me that Randonee is French for "cant tele", I (a full blooded Norwegian) tell them that telemark is Norwegian for "can't <ski> alpine".

post #115 of 189

"Telemark, a license to ski badly."

post #116 of 189

Telemarkers wobble but they don't fall down.

"Turning is a sign of weakness."


post #118 of 189

everytime i lead someone down a run they're nervous about i ask: "what's the worst that could happen?"

not very inspiring, i know, yet they always make it down.

A group of us lucky souls were out on a definately non-powder day one morning ahead of the general public. We got off the lift and set a goal for the first run on a big blue groomer. No skidding - pure arc-to-arc railroad tracks, and don't hit each other.


The corduroy was immaculate. The boys in the cats had done an excellent job, and the texture was just right. We screamed big arcs and tipped 'em over far enough to touch our knuckles to the snow. When we got to the bottom of the lift, Rick said, "Well, that didn't suck!"


And then, there's the Mary Jane slogan, which I'm surprised no one has mentioned: "No pain, No Jane."

One nun to another --- They say it is the second best thing!!!


Powder ----- Like trying to explain sex to a virgin
