Offically Going to Snowboarder's Hell

Today goes down as the most embarrassing days of my short snowboarding life. Today at Sunburst I was using a rope-tow which I am quite experienced at and fell at the top and unknowingly unplugged the tow rope. To add insult to injury it was during our end of season bash, so everyone was shooting' imaginary darts to my face. So what is the worst thing you've done on the mountain?

Sorry dude. Can't touch that. You're on your own.

The only time I've ever done anything that got "noticed" at all, it wasn't really embarrassing-bad. I fell forward on a relatively steep slope, landed on my head (literally) and front flipped back onto my board. Got hoots from the chairlift. I wish I'd had a video.

I have an embarrassing moment at least once a run

Last time I was at WC though, a skier lost his skis near the top of alberta face and slid all the way down the face on his ass. Looked painful. He gots lots of cheers from the lift, I have to admit he had a ballsy line.

The other week I was doing speed runs and did the thing you're never supposed to do. I didn't back off my run when I saw an unpredictable newb snowboarder in front and clipped her going about 36mph. For 1/2 a second I thought it was going to be a full force collision. We both went down but not hard. It could have been a lot worse. I apologized profusely, made sure she was fine, and slinked away in embarrassment.

I supermanned a natural 30-35 footer the other day....under the lift....got my toes under me just enough to bounce off em and do a few cartwheels. Apparently it was big enough....I just saw stars and pain....everyone else seemed to think it was pretty sweet.

Beginning of season caught an edge under the lift and ate it real hard.

Worrying I will look bad keeps me from progressing I know it. That and being geriatric...

A few weeks ago I carelessly placed my splitboard behind some weak ass bushes to keep it in place as I was getting ready to make my decent. The branch broke and my board raced about 500 feet down the slope before hitting a track and flipping over and stopping. It was a shameful walk down through bottomeless snow to say the least

I'm near the end of my second year boarding, and even though I've progressed a lot, I'm still prone to some hilarious/mildly embarrassing things from time to time.

A few weeks ago I got into the glades for the first time. Somehow, I managed to get too deep into the trees and in untouched, natural-growth woods. After about 10 minutes of falling, I managed to find my way back to a groomed trail. Just two trees to ride between and I'm home free...except there was a low branch/root between them that I didn't see. So my board caught that and I full-on scorpioned out of the trees and onto the open trail.

A couple skiers checked to see if I was alright (which I was). It must have looked hilarious from their perspective.

Never had an embarrassing moment but my friends have. 2nd time snowboarding for him, he didn't get off the lift at Boreal (he claims the other two riders prevented him from doing so) so it turned with him still on it, they had to stop the lift. And he had to be helped down.

Second time was on bottom of Peak 9 at Breck, one of those small but very fast chairs. Two guys, weren't prepared, literally scooped them up. Once bounced off right away, the other was hanging onto the chair while it was going up, waiting for it to clear the ramp. After that he dropped off. Hilarious stuff.

This season I was doing some treelines and as I was ready to go back on a groomed trail, a tree appeared out of nowhere, I hitted the brakes but I still hitted the tree, I kinda hugged it Then all of the snow from the tree fell on me, pretty funny to watch according to my friends
