Wife crashed coming off lift
We went up Seymour for some night skiing/riding. Riding up the Lodge chair AFTER OUR LAST RUN, the yutz skier on the chair in front of us had a total yard sale getting off the lift, then just lay there as if waiting for a crane to come along and lift him off. The liftie for some reason didn't stop the lift, so my wife and I had to do hard left/right to avoid running over the twerp and his equipment.
Unfortunately, my wife didn't make it. She hooked a ski on one of the bamboo poles trying to get past the scattered equipment and body parts and had a yard sale of her own, culminating in a jammed shoulder and possibly cracked ribs (just bruised as it turns out). We ended up in the first aid station wife getting ice-packed and in a sling.
Aaaaaaaanyway, we spent 3 hours in Emergency, got x-rays, and the doctor said ribs just bruised take advil go home. Still, you can bet I'm gonna hear about it for a while...
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
