This is me at Alta last March.

Do you think I'm nuts? Or is this acceptable behavior?

It depends how well you know the landing area and snow depth.

For me it would probably be unacceptable behavior since looks like a good way to get shoulder dislocation number 6.

Have any more shots from that day, or any other great shots?

I like that picture, a lot. Totally acceptable.

Taken on a Tuesday by any chance?

Everybody looks good for the first 10 feet... Question is, did you ski it out?

Nice Pic, good quality - TOTALLY acceptable behavior!!
Hell, it's ENCOURAGED!

Nice line, too - But next time, pull your skirt up & hit the POINT!

I'm not sure it this is acceptable behavior. We had a discussion last year and I was told I was irresponsible for skiing powder knowing the speeds I was skiing made it likely I would fall now and then. Being 46 at the time I was shocked to hear that. Looks to me like you're going to eat it on the landing so you'll probably get stuck in the irresponsible group, also.

I love that picture. (wish I could do that...)

And yes - you're nuts. That's why you're so much fun to ski with. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Who cares whether or not you rode out of it? Most people don't have the nutz to even peak over the edge. Totally exceptable and encouraged.

If you call this a landing, I like to call it bombholing.

I think the term NASA uses is splash-down.
