Avalanches Melt When Scary Skier Glances Their Way by Lou Dawson October 31, 2008 written by Lou Dawson October 31, 2008 WildSnower Chris B. sent this over. The thing is, I've seen quite a few tele skiers who looked exactly like this. Art imitates life? Thanks Chris, and happy Halloween everyone. 10 comments 0 FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail previous post A Conversation With Bill Briggs next post The Unbearable Lightness of Skiing 10 comments Clyde October 31, 2008 - 9:19 am Notice how Lou’s definition of a “scary skier” is a telemarker 😉 Randonnee October 31, 2008 - 9:40 am A real upgrade would be to have snowboarder slamming into the Scary Skier from the rear : ) } : )} Whoa, sorry dude! Lou October 31, 2008 - 10:13 am Be afraid, be very afraid. Randonnee October 31, 2008 - 10:22 am 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. : ) } :)} Lou October 31, 2008 - 10:49 am 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?

Lynn November 2, 2008 - 2:26 pm 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……. Lou November 2, 2008 - 4:27 pm That’s what I looked like before knee surgery, when the Ibu wore off in the afternoon. dave downing November 2, 2008 - 10:54 pm get with the times man, no one wears turquoise-on-turquoise anymore. Pink and turquoise perhaps … 🙂 Lou November 3, 2008 - 8:04 am 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. Comments are closed.
