You and your friend are smart to have gotten a lesson

Hope the pain has subsided and that you get out there again and have even more fun.

Oh, and if you haven't already, definitely check out Snowolf's videos. I think they're in the Tips, Tricks subforum here and sticky'd. If you do a search you'll be able to find them. He may cover ways to get up.

I too, (and still sometimes) flop around like an idiot. My first run was very similar to Eats'... my friend took me on a steep blue (well as steep as you can get in Ontario lol), icy run and though I was gonna die. I made it down like 10 mins later, after falling so much on my butt doing "the falling leaf"... fun times hehe.

Remember to always stretch before you start boarding and after a day on the slopes, get in a hot tob if you can (hot bath or shower will be just as good) and apply ice to swollen areas if any, or I like using Rub A535.
OUCH i fell bad for you guys.thanks for the output
