I did something similar a few weeks ago. Skating quickly to meet up with a friend I kind of got my feet mixed up. I started to go down but caught myself very awkwardly and continued to do a half skate half fall for about 25 yards until I finally fell and rolled onto my back.

I watched a skier on Doyle's Dive @ Brighton this past weekend. It's a black that looks more like a double-black right now just from the lack of coverage and runs right underneath the popular snake lift. Any way, the guy is on the mellow part that starts the run, makes about 2 turns, and just inexplicably falls over. He starts laughing at himself, but everyone on the lift was DEATHLY quiet. I think it added to his embarrassment

A couple weekends ago I was following behind my wife and ollied off a cat track onto a blue slope she decided to ride. It wasn't particularly impressive or anything, but I landed it and made about 1 turn before hitting an unexpected powder patch. I dug in and somersaulted a couples times in front of probably 3 different ski school groups.

Another ski school related story. One time at Brighton I was getting on the Crest Lift to start a late afternoon session. There was zero crowd so I ended up gliding right up to the chair solo. As I was getting ready to skate up a fairly sizable ski school class made up of probably 10 or so 20ish something women came up behind me. Since I can tell you that it's probably clear that I wasn't focusing much on my skate up to the chair. What I did not know was that because it was a decently warm day there was no snow on the ramp (the lifties were obviously just shooting the breeze, but whatever). I caught a tiny bit of edge shortly into my approach when my board came to an unexpected complete stop and fell flat on my butt. Hopped up and got on the chair before it became a total epic fail, but nevertheless that was certainly a derp moment.

Wet day followed by deep freeze and high winds resulted in unexpected icy patches. Went down a blue, and hit one of these and fell on my ass. Was in the middle of laughing at myself when a ski patrol skiier came over the same lip, hit the same patch, and somersaulted twice. Then I was laughing at both of us.

Wasn't really a fail, but still funny.

At the area I was boarding we had a 14 km(8/9 miles) long blue slope. We only did it once because it was a real pain to get back to our hotel, but still. At one point we got off a steep part with some speed, crossed a small bridge and right after that bridge was a hard left turn. One of the group was right in front of me when we came upto the turn, but he didn't turn hard enough so I didn't have any room left to make the turn. I ended up going in the snow covered side where I was stuck and waiting for my other friends to show up. Found it pretty hilarious and so did they. It should be on video aswell where one of them comes over the bridge and you see me sitting stuck in the hill.

I teach snowboarding at my mountain and regularly trip onto the smallest magic carpet with my students. I bring humor to the group

I've had so many goddamn scorpiens this year! seems like everytime i fall going over 25km/h i slide straight into a scorpien.. Then burst out laughing and bring my arms up like an airplane I love making people on the lift laugh

Oh and last week I was skating along and was passing a 4 y/o girl on skis when I bailed hard about 6' in front of here. The little kid cackled at me!

I had a few wtf moments this weekend. First for some reason I kept putting my foot on my binding and trying to skate...doesn't work so well.

I also ate it 2-3 times goofing around on a green run with my lady friend who is learning. Me paying attention to her plus me riding a brand new set of bindings contributed to it. Tried to ollie once and didn't notice my toe strap had come undone so boom down I went. One time I was just carving and I guess I zoned out so my lead foot was toe side and my rear was heel..and yeah that didn't work out so well. Come another 3-4 pulls of my flask though and I was riding like a champ.

I just thought of another thing I did a bunch of times last year. Nobody could have known about it but myself but I was working on BS 3's on a 25' stepdown and everytime I tried to grab stale when I let go I would run my hand over my ratchet release... so ya I'm landing 3's with my back binding popped open over and over again trying not to crash which is tough when you need to land on your toes haha... I have since corrected this problem to avoid certain death.
