That was the story of my life at Squaw Valley this past weekend. Except that I have a very inpatient skier friend. I'm a beginner, so sometimes I fall at places I can't control, and get stuck on flat areas. I stood there hoping that there is a small incline, but I'm just stuck. Then I get yelled at "I told you not to lose your momentum, don't fall!" I was nearly in tears, it's not like I can control that.
I saw lots of snowboarders do the "monkey maneuver". Their hands on the ground to propel themselves to get some speed and off they go.I tried and it doesn't work. Some unstrap and skate/glide. Me, I unstrap and walk, it's very annoying. I kept thrusting my hip forward towards the nose of the board, nada...and then my phone rings "are you still stuck? I'm still waiting!!"... failed!!
