cOOOOOOOcOOOOO LoPEEEEEEzzz!!!That hurts just reading because I've been there. It is the single worst thing that can happen while boarding. Catch back edge and seemingly unknown forces literally slingshot/catapult your head straight towards either snow or ice. Incredible how quick it can happen and there just isn't enough time to protect your head. So thankful for your hair in a bun cause that could easily been a concussion or worse. I've found ice to be particularly unforgiving. Evil shit prolly gets off when hurts us
I can totally see you flying through the air skii-less at top speed. Definitely one of those calgon get me out of here moments. When I was maybe 9 or 10, I had very little fear and I was night skiing by myself at night at wilmot mtn in Wisconsin. The mntn was so small it wasn't hard to shine lights on it and make it "night-ski" ready and I think it was open till 10 or 11. Anywho it was getting late and I was on a chair-lift with some kids I didn't know and we made a plan. Once off lift I would go right and they could go left down a back entrance to another run, and we would meet at where the 2 runs converge because there was a nice jump there. I would fly off from my way and they from theirs, and whalla it would be cool and we'd look like Olympic medalists or some shit. Well that was the plan I don't know how this must have looked from a camera angle but from mine, I took my jump on time and was who knows how high in the air and somehow one of the kids that was jumping from the other direction was so far beneath me in the air that I clipped his head/helmet with my skiis and we both were thrown completely off course and crashed like whoa. I will never ever forget crashing, the complete yardsale and all my shit is everywhere, I'm skidding further and further down the mnth on my stomach and I'm thinkin "God I hope that guy is ok" and all I can see is stars. Was 1st experience ever with those tiny space ship super bright light "stars" you see when close to knocked the fk out. I looked and saw them and put face down in snow and closed eyes and then looked again and they were all still there. I was like shit am I blinded for life and forever plagued by these microscopic LED lights in my eyeballs or is this going to go away. Thankfully everyone ended up ok but sheesh those were the days. No fear. Go literally as fast as could go and shoot off a jump and hope it all works out. I absolutely loved skiing as a kid. Was some of the best times of my life for sure.
