Most of the time when you go out for a training class in the business world you typically have sessions that last 50 minutes then have a 10 minute “bio” break — Maybe they do one and half hour sessions with breaks. I’m doing a Children’s Specialist certification class for the next few weeks and I realized just how “odd” ski instructors are. Which after being a ski instructor isn’t that “odd”, but funny in comparison.
After being hit and watching other people getting hit on my local ski hill, I’m working on a few theories. Fundamentally I think there are a few classes of skier (snowboarder) v.s. skier (snowboarder) collisions. This is just your day-to-day type, since of these end up with bruises not sled off the hill injuries. Loss of control — being on terrain that’s beyond your “true” skill. Doing dumb things — I’m going to hit that jump without making sure the person who crashed is clear.
Ok, spent a week in Chile skiing at Portillo — totally cool! But, like anything I’m both totally psyched and totally frustrated… Here’s some video from the last day… My left hand turns suck (ok, it’s relative…)
