I stand corrected!
lol at the resemblance with your avater. same pose!
Ha ha ha Well the avatar is just a sized down version of that, only when converting to GIF web colors it turned green.
an older picture, but me nonetheless.
Kayin, someone left a sycle in your eyebrow.
Do you pose for catalouges for a living? Im expecting to see Lumberjack Shirt: $9.99 underneath.
It's old, but it's the most recent I have, I need to get ahold of a camera again.
More than a resemblance
teh almighty cardan
Camera dunna like me face
haha rage against the machine... good stuff
so very pleased to meet you xD
That looks very, very, painfull.
it looks that way, but it just isnt. never heard anyone complain about 'button' lifts, well i did once but that was cus i ended up sliding back down the hill ( backwards) with pole in hand, now not connected to the wire
As a snowboarder, I've heard plenty of people complain about button lifts!
Doable but not easy for the beginners.
Shop smart, shop s-mart.
That pic was from your dremel incident thread, right?
snowboarders + button lifts = HILAROUS
they just werent made for them, and especially beginners spend a long time falling on there ass, watched two girls attempt it several times, though the lift was a grab and hold on type with a very very fast and jerky initial movement.
as for skiers it couldnt be easier, i cant see how people fall off them.
i guess i'm pretty used to poma lifts through work, lots of fun to be had (sliding up on soapy shoes, pulling back to create loads of tension then flying a few feet through the air, "fishin'" (you'd just have to see it) ) so i don't really "understand" people not being able to use them. It IS a bit weird for us snowboarders but sorta becomes second nature. As for comedy lift action, try watching people trying to use a rope tow. To be fair, if you're big/heavy/weak, rope toes are tough to get going on.
i dont grumble bloody snowboarders allways cutting us skiers up, falling over whenever they feel like it, running into you cus they cant stop quick enough....
i couldnt care less if you did the above ^^ as long as it didnt hurt i'll still be laughing xD
i HATE rope tows, couldnt use one for the life of me, i tick two of the boxes, big (6'4) and heavy (you do the math!! ...about 14.5st.)
yes i have done snowboarding and i loved it, just not the right resort to do it at.
if you wanna snowboard all year round...check out www.freebord.com taught me how to 'board before i hit the slopes. didnt spend my 'boarding taster session' of 2 hours long on my arse like all the other n00bies, i could actually, turn, carve and stop within 20mins xD
I have a funny picture of you Stickeh when we bumped into each other skiing in Bulgaria. Seem to remember its you trying to pretend your not absolutly wasted. Amazing what a small world it is when you can meet someone a few hundred miles away without knowing.
I dont mind button or rope lifts but meh thats me. Lol i dont mind snowboarders but they tend to be a lot more cocky and confident of their skill than skiers. How i laughed when a showboarder thought it would be cool to talk on his mobile on the way down..only hitting into the padding around the ski lift supports haha.
