Hmmm... Inspired by the speed record thread I thougt, this might be a good illustration on how quickly things can change...

Last run of the day, legs tired, heading down to the aprés, cruising mode, not fast.

Second 11. Skiers on left n right standing doing nothing - check. Boarder on the right heelside slipping - check. Skier girl on the left going left - check. Center is free - check. All good.

Second 12. Skiers on left n right still standing doing nothing - check. Boarder on the right still heelside slipping - check. Skier girl still going left on the left - check. Center is free - check. All good.

Still second 12. Still the same left n right, still good.

Still second 12. uhmmm...

Second 13. Holy plow U-turn !

Second 13. Slamming the breaks...

Second 14. chhhhhhhh...

Second 14. Standstill, centimeters away from her skies. She's still unaware of me...

only now she has seen me - and smiled :=)


Phew!
