Simon Birch Two weeks ago when we got like 8 inches of snow in VA I went to the local hill and hopped on the lift and didn't notice the lift operators piled a lot of snow a few feet ahead of after you sit down, well......I wasn't paying attention and the front of my board went into the pile and I went face first off the lift chair and rolled into the snow. My board was sticking up in the snow and I was bent like a pretzel. The lift operators stopped the lift and everyone behind me was staring at me. Took like what seemed forever to get out of the snow and back on the lift haha.

Of course, as soon as I started down the hill, I had one of my more spectacular crashes of the day. I looked back up, and of course she had seen the whole thing. I told her it was because I knew she was watching.

My first time on a T-Bar I tried to sit down on it (why does everyone try to sit down on it?!) then i fell down a little while later , so I fell off, er scratch that, I kind of collided with the ground face first, I guess no one saw me or cared, I couldn't move my board was in a super awkward position and basically the people behind me on the t-bar caught up with me, crashed into to me and there were basically 4 people in a pile until thy finally stopped the freaking t-bar. And it wasn't just skiers laughing at me. It was everyone. And guess what was even more embarrassing? I actually seriously hurt from my board twisting when i fell so i had to lay there until ski patrol got me. I couldn't even ride down :/ the thing I still don't understand is how my snowboard twisted so much falling down.
Good news though, I now ride a t-bar like a champ

The skier with us filmed the end of our ride at the top and placed it on facebook with a rainbow and unicorn song. It was awesome
T- bars were really hard for me to understand when I began using them

OU812 Last year I was on this chair that was really slow but the wheel where the chair turns isn't that big so it scoops you up really fast and unloads quick as well. If you don't unload fast you're fucked which is what happened to me.
Top of the hill, I get ready, lay the board down and push off the chair. I guess I didn't do it quick enough or what but the chair scooped me back up and I found myself about to ride back down again lol. The lifties saw it and stopped the whole lift, I quickly unstrapped and jumped down while the whole line was looking at me. Little embarrassing to say the least.
