An icy, hadn't snowed in a week, type day. Skier "buddy" says, "let's try a black". He takes off and I remember thinkin' don't fall headfirst down the slope, cause there is no way in hell I'll be able to stop. Trees everywhere......I think I made a couple of turns and ate shit. Did the falling leaf on my heelside the rest of the way down. Today that same "buddy" can't keep up!
