Hi Neebs,

Thanks.

There weren't any people on the chairs because they close that area to do the avalanche control work. So all good, and no one was hurt except for a few buildings!

Finished out a ho hum California ski season at Kirkwood. Luckily, our Epic passes were good at resorts in Colorado and Utah. Plus we got skiing at our beloved Bridger Bowl.

I was explaining to my kid the hazards of rapid deceleration injuries. Ruptured Aortas, that sort of thing. I think that was what got Sarah Hart, amongst others. I don't understand why these jumpers don't get it more often.

I saw an interview, he said that he freaked out in the air and closed his eyes and prayed to god that he would be ok. Obviously he lost his balance because his eyes were closed but it probably saved his life.

There are sme things that people do that I literally don,t understand the motivation. No body can convince me that he survived that jump due to any half assed amount of planning or execution. There was a guy in whistler a while ago that decided he had to do a road cut gap jump. Well his planning and execution saw him do a full splat Mach speed impact into the rock wall, resulting in death.

When stunt guys do that stuff the whole process is mocked and practiced to perfection... Before execution.

What people will do for a camera.

Jesus... I just read the obit. An early season Avy in horrendous terrain. No recue gear and no training. Yet somehow he earned the title pro skier. I absolutely don't get the pro skier thing at all. Usually if I hire a pro anything, I expect professional standards of competency.

Not exactly big air but still impressive in its own way. May dad skiing yesterday a couple of weeks before he turns 87, he has skied continually since the early 50's. Had heart surgery last year when a bee sting almost took him out so this was his only day this year. Also made him drive up and back.
