Ski Report, Week 4...

This weekend was rough. Bitter cold and biting wind made conditions less than ideal. Even so, I was able to get in a few good runs. Saturday I was asked to help out with training some of our prospective members in the fine art of toboggan-handling. We didn't get quite as much air as the guy pictured above, but maybe next time.

I had a few injuries to deal with. One was a burnt thumb, not a very common skiing injury (she had burned it on a wood-burning stove). I also had a visibly fractured lower leg that I tended to. The kid had one of the highest pain thresholds I've seen considering the deformity of his leg. I think the ambulance came a couple of times for other things I wasn't involved with.

My best run came while listening to Led Zeppelin's "Hot Dog" which I present for your listening pleasure:

You picked the perfect song for your best run. Led Zepplin makes me do all kinds of awesome things too.

That is the bestest, most awesome toboggan shot ever!

You have a stronger stomach than I to deal with injuries like that. I'm such a wuss when it comes to blood.
And broken bones.
Etc....

I never listen to music when I ski. I was thinking about trying that this year. Led Zeppelin would be perfect.

That was the most awesome song I could think of for downhill skiing. Excellent choice!
