Should check out some of the hotshots trying to jump the rocks on Tuckerman's Ravine headwall. Skiis, poles and arms and legs flying everywhere. Train wreck in the watching.
Edit, here's a link to a few good ones:
Bad karma, eh. If there was no bad karma I wouldn't have any at all.
Nice! Funny how the snowboarders didn't seem to have problems in that yet the skiers were all over the place. They have more to worry about
: 2 skis and 2 poles, whereas we only have to be concerned about the position of 1 board.
All these videos make me wonder why they tell us we need a leash to prevent a "runaway board" when skiers are the ones whose shit goes everywhere.
I just ignore those guys anyway. At some places here in MI they actually make it mandatory for snowboarders. This makes perfect sense for their step-in rental boards, which would freeze up and wouldn't click to my boots years ago when I used them. But my board and all other non-rentals have strap-in bindings, so I always just put my front pant leg over my binding straps so the can't see that there isn't a leash.
Man, I wish I lived out west somewhere.
