Gee Myoko, that first picture is a nice shot over the tree line. Is that blue outfit a one piece?Yup, also difficult to tell just how fast you are going on clean powder. Even going down deep chopped up powder if its steep you are kinda committed to just holding on and getting to the end I often find. Couple of pics from the last 2 days at Shiga Kogan. I let me skier mate have a go at some deeper powder, he is not doing it anymore he reckons after finally digging himself out lol
Today I just left a run to check out some powder on the edge of a groomer that I have been bombing down for days, hit some random icy patch that kicked me right, did a tumble turn and ended up somehow hitting a tree with, fortunately, the back of my head, a full 3.5m from where I lost it. Still can't work out how I even got there. Thats twice in about 7 years I have needed a helmet btw and I have done hundreds of tight tree runs etc but shit I was lucky. Thats about how often I have needed my wrist guards also. It's not the things you do that actually are dangerous that get you I find, its pissy things you don't rate.
