Don't be hating on Shames though, we are very lucky to still have that mountain open.
Side slipping sucks! So, yeah not having fun.

Not hating on Shames, just frustrated because I know what to do, I just can't go work on it. It's tough to focus on leaning downhill and putting weight on your lead leg and pivoting when you can't put weight or pivot on your sprained ankle!
