|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.|

It was kind of embarrassing when on my first day on a board, practicing on the bunny hill, I was chatting with a high school aged instructor girl (but not one I'd been training with), and told her I was doing pretty well, and could make it down pretty easily without falling.
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.

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.
