Walk.


Actually there are plenty of places to duck out of the trees and cut back to the groomer. I, however, got greedy for powder and stayed in the trees til the bitter end. I had to walk about 200 feet in waist* deep pow when things flattened out, but I was right by the chairlift.


p.s. I am practically a midget so it was probably knee deep pow




and to keep on topic.....it almost snowed last night....I saw it.

I wouldn't hit that area unless there's another storm. Those pictures are from the day after a small storm that left a little over a foot of new snow. Area was pummled with people and it got into the low 50s later in the day. That picture was from last Friday--I went back on Saturday and it was not fun at all big sheet of ice

So we we've at 830am. Take a run down with my buddy who's
New at boarding.
2nd run of the day he falls and get a concussion. He wasn't wearing
A helmet although he did the first time he went with me. I can't force him
Can't remember sentences and barely his name..

Needless to say my day was over at 930am and it was nice out too.

Had to go to the hospital.. So I turned my ticket I..
Then he said I could have finished but the day was already fucked.

Sorry to hear that. Hope your friend is alright!!! What was he doing that he hit his head that hard? I guess the upside is that it happened early enough in the day that you both could have gotten your ticket refunded/rain-checked for another day this season. Next time your friend gets up on the mountain, tell him to wear his helmet! Stories like this make me want to buy a helmet, real bad...

You don't have to be going that fast to get a concussion. I was getting off the lift one time and rammed into a person that was just standing on the off ramp. She saw me come and pushed me back. We both fell but I fell while flipped back and landed on the back of my head with a resounding thud. I was dizzy for a good 20 seconds.

Good thing I was wearing my helmet. It was only later that I realized the fall broke the suspension straps/frame inside my helmet. If I were not wearing a helmet I would have gotten a minor concussion, if not worse.
