Wow, Bousquet! I thought I was the only person who went there...
That base double chair with the pipe up the middle caused quite a ruckus the last time I was there- I brought this chica who was a new snowboarder and as we were loading onto said chair, she loses her balance and starts to fall to the outside, then she flails, grabs my jacket and pulls herself back towards the seat and pulling me into the path of the bar... CLOOOOONG! The bar hits me square in the back of the helmet and shoulderblade and I do my best to grab onto the chair which is now wildly swinging to no avail- I made it maybe another ten feet and bailed into the big snow bank below. While lil miss no-balance sits confortably in her seat. All 6 people I was with- along with everyone in the liftline- were rolling on the ground laughing, the girl is profusely apologizing and even the lifties were pissing themselves cackling... Anybody watching knew it wasn't my fault but it was definitely a very embarassing moment nonetheless... We still laugh about that one!
ragin....still using the same boots... the blood and bone fragments came out completely so it isn't stinky (thanks, Ging).
I'm hesitant to ski on those skis, though. Is that silly? I remember crossing the tips on those twice, which was remarkable because I never do that anymore. I only skied on them 2 days. I should just sell them.
on the way down, the Queen smote snow snakes, took charge of 4 collisions, tossing 5 collide-ees into the abyss, bench pressed the entire snowmaking team, watched a full length feature film on a 178 inch HDTV in Condo 7 and got home in time to get over the 24 hour flu in exactly 39 minutes!
