WildSnower Chris B. sent this over. The thing is, Ive seen quite a few tele skiers who looked exactly like this. Art imitates life? Thanks Chris, and happy Halloween everyone.

    Notice how Lou’s definition of a “scary skier” is a telemarker 😉

    A real upgrade would be to have snowboarder slamming into the Scary Skier from the rear : ) } : )} Whoa, sorry dude!

    Be afraid, be very afraid.

    Another thing is that that stick will make it tough for Scary to weight that back ski. Oh well, he will just have to Fakemark, pretty common with the big heavy gear.

    : ) } :)}

    Yeah, when I saw that stick I figured perhaps Scary had dropped a knee a bit too low while in the brush and thus ended up doing protological bushwhacking (LOL). Yet another reason to stick with AT gear?

    His grimace would suggest he is about to hit a patch of breakable crust, or maybe he just got smoked by his buddy on dynafits….

    Whoa boys, Halloween arrives and claws come out. First of all, you may have seen that look maybe 10 – 20 years ago on riders of fixed and free heel. Tell the whole story Lou, you are not a political candidate.

    His face is red because he is forced to wear his “Grranimals” shell gear, it has nothing to do with his free heel. He is actually posed in a resting position waiting for his Dynafit ultralights to catch up…….

    That’s what I looked like before knee surgery, when the Ibu wore off in the afternoon.

    get with the times man, no one wears turquoise-on-turquoise anymore. Pink and turquoise perhaps … 🙂

    Scare skier is placed at the bottom of your favorite backcountry stash, to scare off the out of towner crowds stealing your pow. He’ll be for sale at Backcountry.com just as soon as the DIN standard for scare skiers is finalized, and Scareskier Inc. decides who the importer/distributor will be. Right now it’s a toss up between Salewa NA and Black Diamond.
