That has to have been intentional. And was actually pretty funny.

Okay that is glorious. Honestly can't tell if staged or if the production team decided "Fark it, let's keep it in."

OK, that made me smile. I needed that.

it was probably like 10 degrees and they got clean audio (no wind) and no farkups on the read.

Subby clearly doesn't ski/snowboard. Those are the stairs at every ski resort ever. Ski boots suck to walk so much there are youtube videos to instruct you how to walk in them on dry flat surfaces.

The production team at a place like Seven Springs is a Liftie who might be in a 2 year college taking a video class and knows how to post the video and said, "I can do that boss".

So like, honestly, even odds still.

Anyway, its a cool mountain, and either way fits their vibe. check them out if you are in the neighborhood.

That's funny ..

If this is real, the way that person sort of stumbled/shambled off-screen makes me wonder if the problem was not in fact the stairs.

And also if it is real, whoever was running the camera is a jackhole.

Veteran snow-maker here. That's just a dumb newbie that never learned to walk in ski boots before. The same type of jackass that would get tangled up in the 50 feet of hoses I'm dragging behind my sled going up the slopes and then act like it's my fault. It's like, farker, we're both high and you know it.

So you have never been skiing, or if you have, somehow managed to not try and go down the stairs the first time when it wasn't clear, is what you are trying to tell us.

There is a way to do it, you usually do what that person did the first time you try. 30 years of skiing and in much better stuff than rentals i'll pull one of those from time to time.

They were walking like they've never been in ski boots before, and they hadn't popped the releases while walking around.

If they had their pants tucked into their boots I'd know for sure, as there's no way it's a member of staff unless they just started.

The most astonishing thing about that clip is that there are actually people who apparently have no ability to understand when they're watching something that's being done deliberately to make a clip go viral. This right here is why viral advertising works so well, and why there's almost no bar at all for entry into doing it.

I am the king of slipping on ice...started in college, I was constantly dropping on my ass on icy sidewalks.  And since moving near mountains I have had at least three complete wipeouts walking at the ski area even with boot sole protectors that are supposed to add grip.   I decided I must walk wrong because I don't know anyone as slip-prone as me.

I assume every organizational equivalent of the Geek Hierarchy

We always rag on the ski instructors, because they have a fireplace in their locker room.

But we like the snow makers. If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't be open.  Although it kinda sucks when they don't manage to get the top of lift 5 open, and they're running the guns as mid-station where ski patrol has to stage

At our local place this weekend, i got, as the day went on, into a progressively hostile argument over Dan McGillis with a liftie because i wore a flyers toque and he was apparently his roommate back at North Eastern.

There is a pecking order on the mountain.

I don't know what that is. Summer meant landscaping the timeshares.

I tried skiing again just a couple years ago... my 40 year old legs weren't nearly as good at it as my 20 year old legs had been... they still remembered how to do it, but afterward they forgot how to bend and flex. 

Also, falling down at speed on skis wasnt the silly little inconsequential hayride that i remembered it to be. It was actually quite unpleasant!

[Fark user image 620x350]


That movie was terrible. Ski School 2 had humor, dave marshack (Sp?) and not the weird 80s lingerie\bathing suits.
 
2022-01-20 2:57:12 PM  
It also broke the mold, to an extent of the 80s films that the genre was weighed down by, but paid homage to the classic 80s movies in its resolution. It was an art work of ski cinema. I've heard that warren miller openly wept when first seeing it, as it was what he strived to make.

I also think Tia Carerra was in it at the end. Anyway, give it a watch. Its like the original, you just don't need to be as stoned to enjoy it.

Those are aggressive as hell.  Probably suffice to have some nanospikes in the car or bag.  They pack up small and work surprisingly well.

Exactly! Crampons are for climbing ice, not walking around town on an icy day. Microspikes or Nanospikes are perfect for around town.

typical new skier, getting used to big clunky boots walking up and down stairs.
we have to watch ourselves closely and take small steps as our decks are made of trex, which is slippery even when bone dry. the slightest amount of water or ice on trex will get you if youre hurrying and taking big speedy steps. ive taken a couple good slip and falls on it over the years...
