I was skiing with a couple of Bears yesterday when we headed off the groomed and into the trees a bit. Some of that "In the woods surrounded by nature" kind of thing. A "CRACK" blasts and echos around me. Instinct sets in, I'm about to duck. Then I feel my foot twisting inside my boot, my knee wrenches, and my leg jerks into the air w/ski attached. Ah, yeah, I hit something under the snow. Ski down to the guys & we take a look at the ski. Yep, nice core shot. Now I know how a core "shot" got its name. Shockingly loud ! Funny how I heard it before I actually felt it.
