Kinda scary

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I had a scary incident happen to me a couple days ago while skiing. Some friends and I wanted to try the halfpipe. I've never skied in a halfpipe before, so I didn't really know what to expect. There was a boarder in front of me, so I waited until he was well into the pipe before I started. I headed down and did the first couple turns. I went up close to the lip, then turned. I wasn't going to attempt any aerial tricks or anything! Anyway, you get going pretty fast and before I knew it I had basically caught the boarder. We didn't collide or anything, but I'm sure he was shocked when he saw me right there. He was pissed and I was pretty clearly to blame. By the time I saw him I just couldn't do anything about it. It was too slick to stop quickly.

I guess the moral of this story is be careful out there and be sure to give others lots of room. Even when you think you're in control something can happen that puts yourself or others in danger.

Take responsibilities for your actions.
Way to fess up!

Problem is most people do not want to admit when they are at fault. SkiKing has the right idea.....
