I guess I should have been more specific.

Have I executed these, quite technical, manuvers properly?

There was video, however the camera and operator are under the rescue sled in photo 2 and are now unavailable!

I'm told the videographer will be ok in a year or so, same cannot be said for the camera.

(edit for spelling)

Well, if it's critique you want:

Shouldn't your hands be below the traces?

Maybe your situation would have been different if you'd used the chain?

That IS a very winning smile, though. :~)

I've seen turtles in that same predicament!

And yes, that's quite a smile...we know who's under the sled...who's under YOU? [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

I see, in the first pic, you are trying to master the difficult art of "Lid" skiing. Unfortunately, your hands are too far forward and your back is curved into a C shape. This does not permit you to actually ride on your lid but only on your upper back.

Remember, Stay out of the front seat here, hands back and low, neck and upper back straight and get up on that lid. Also, this technique is best saved for moderate powder days. Then with a straight face you can say you did ski neck deep powder!!!

Good luck and post more pics. We need to review your progress.
