The season is starting up - which one will you be?

1. The friend who manages the best wipe-out.

Yes, the person in the above photo should be wearing skis.

3. An older couple who are doing precisely one run a day before getting drunk in a mountain restaurant.

Actually, they might have nailed it.

4. A very small child who clearly lives in resort, and is ludicrously more talented than you.

Why are you doing front flips, and where are your parents?

5. A group of teens building tiny jumps next to the slope.

Slightly too scared to try the actual park, but know that ‘jumps’ are important. It’s a compromise.

17. The guy whose kit gives up on him halfway through a run.

ID: 2700166

26. The person who loses their ski in powder. And spends an hour trying to find it.

ID: 2700325

27. Someone pointing out that these slopes would totally be a different classification in a different region.

True, possibly, but not useful.

ID: 2700424

28. The guy who manages to fall over and get stuck. On the ground.

Turns out, 12 feet of metal strapped to your feet doesn’t make getting up easier.

ID: 2700204

29. Someone who takes the awesome photos.

Keep looking…
