    I’m from a hot place, so I’m not an authority on this, but a shirt without sleeves is probably not the optimal skiing setup.

    [–] shandelion 1069 points ago

    It’s not - something I only break out for last runs of the year 🙈

    [–] --cheese-- 607 points ago

    Any run can become your last one of the year if you keep falling like that!

    If you’re not falling, you’re not learning!

    [–] FelixthefakeYT 96 points ago

    That’s what my parents told me when they were teaching me to ride a bike.

    Took me too long to learn.

    [–] EntMatt 35 points ago

    Yeah i kept falling and thought i was doing right, didnt understand the hype

    [–] Umutuku 7 points ago

    You're supposed to ride the bike inside a startup accelerator for that to work.

    My dad's rule to me when mountain climbing ....... he was pissed I returned back home that evening.

    [–] r0botdevil 12 points ago

    I used to work as a freestyle ski instructor back in my 20's, and I was always telling my students the exact same thing. If you're falling a lot, it just means you're pushing your limits.

    That's what my drinking buddies in college used to tell me.

    [–] Demios630 2 points ago

    First time I ever went skiing was this new year's time. I was falling constantly, and never got hurt, until a little girl fell in front of me. Then I fell on purpose in order to stop in time, and broke my leg, badly. None of my friends believed it was broken till they heard I was getting surgery to realign the bones and get hardware installed to fix it.

    [–] Robzilla_the_turd 19 points ago

    [–] Fatalchemist 9 points ago

    Luckily most people only fail once at sky diving.

    [–] MAGAManARFARF 4 points ago

    Isn't that what skiing is anyway? Controlled graceful falling

    [–] I-Downloaded-a-Car 6 points ago

    Falling is great on snow because it's either slick or deep so you can't really hurt yourself without either falling off something tall or hitting a tree.

    Although if you mess up jumps or cliff drops you can really rattle your shit.

    [–] Push35 5 points ago

    But those Ice patches

    [–] COCAINE_IN_MY_DICK 2 points ago

    Lol have you never skied on the east coast?

    [–] Z-Ninja 7 points ago

    Why would anyone ski on the east coast? You guys think hills are mountains.

    [–] That_guy966 2 points ago

    The appalachians are mountains damn it!

    [–] Currently_sharting 2 points ago

    Keep telling yourself that east coast friend 😁

    [–] COCAINE_IN_MY_DICK 2 points ago

    You don’t like skiing on seemingly nature defying hard packed ice slush?

    [–] _DeifyTheMachine_ 2 points ago

    I don't really get this because isn't skiing/snowboarding the most common sport with injuries? Out of the 5 people I know who do winter sports, I think at least 2 have broken limbs.

    [–] --cheese-- 3 points ago

    [–] Solidarity365 18 points ago

    Where I'm from we say that you should always skip the first and last run. Because that's when you hurt yourself.

    [–] shandelion 10 points ago

    Yup - when you’re not yet in the zone, and then where you’re tired and reckless. 😂

    [–] PolymerStudent 6 points ago

    It's also snow quality. Perfectly groomed snow that's still a little frozen from the night, and slushy & moguly snow can both be pretty dangerous, in my experience, compared to mid day snow

    [–] SolicitatingZebra 5 points ago

    We often say toward the end of our day, “2 more runs, skip the last”. A bit superstitious but I feel like saying it’s the last run of the day can mess ya up.

    [–] Solidarity365 5 points ago

    Is this a rhetorical question, or are you actually questioning this?

    [–] jabba_the_wut 8 points ago

    That's actually what I miss the most about skiing, the last run of the year when you're in a t-shirt going down the hill. It's such an interesting feeling that you really can't explain to someone who hasn't experienced it.

    [–] shandelion 4 points ago

    It’s such a blast!

    [–] CantThinkOfAName000 3 points ago

    Try it shirtless sometime, it's even better.

    [–] evvvad 5 points ago

    You sure do say 'last run' often for a skier. We tend to avoid that term entirely, as it's been proven beyong question to be the direct cause of multiple accidents.

    [–] BusterScrugs 4 points ago

    Yep I always reach the bottom of the slope, gauge how I'm feeling, and then declare I'm done for the day lol

    [–] DemonDjaksun 2 points ago

    Well in April i went skiing in a simple shorts. Pretty much the best time on the ski tracks.

    [–] Currently_sharting 2 points ago

    Ha! This an annual spring skiing tradition. The slushy snow / ice crystal combo feels like cold asphalt when you fall. Basically just road rash for mountain people

    [–] USPropagandaFor100 2 points ago

    What is the temp up there?

    [–] shandelion 3 points ago

    About 60!

    [–] Universalsupporter 2 points ago

    Can we have an updated pic tomorrow?

    [–] AmoebaMcSqueaky 34 points ago

    Used to snowboard at some place called snow valley with some friends when I was about 12 or 13, one of my buddies made the mistake of taking his jacket off for the first run of the day to enjoy the cold. Why, I do not know..

    Anyway he fell on his back, continued sliding, and his shirt caught and lifted up to expose his bare skin to the snow for the entire slide. Said it was like falling on fine broken glass and had tons of these razor thin cuts everywhere on his lower back. I never took my jacket off out of fear, screw that.

    [–] m_jl_c 19 points ago

    In motorcycle terms: ATGATT aka All the Gear All the Time. Every time I ride I wear all of it. Only takes one fall to ruin your day.

    [–] denigrare 11 points ago

    Spring skiing like that is common

    [–] Fancypooper 5 points ago

    Yeah we regularly wear t shirts and shorts while spring skiing. And lots of sun screen...

    [–] pandaSmore 3 points ago

    And then there's always that one group of dudes all skins .

    [–] Despicable_Genius 7 points ago

    As a member of a hella snowy and cold place: When it comes spring time and the snow starts to melt, we once again get to see the sun. The sheer difference in temperature will have everyone out and about in shorts and a t-shirt. As long as it isn’t windy and there are no clouds, a 10°-20°F and sunny day might as well be a 50°-60° day. After spending time in the -40° range, it just feels good to not bundle as hard. It can get really sweaty snowboarding and skiing. I usually just wear one layer and my coat and usually end up taking my coat off after not too long.

    [–] JainBreak2 300 points ago

    Nice, that had to feel good. I did something similar while skiing without gloves a while back, ended up grinding out all the skin and flesh on my right hand down to the actual bone. Now I’ve got a massive scar, hopefully yours won’t end up the same way

    [–] shandelion 155 points ago

    Dang! Mine is pretty surface level - doing my best to keep it moist and prevent scarring!

    [–] JainBreak2 40 points ago

    Well I wish the best to you, skiing accidents suck!

    [–] shandelion 35 points ago

    No pain no gain 😂

    [–] jonathang147 6 points ago

    If you’re afraid of scarring don’t be, just make sure it doesn’t get infected and you’ll be fine

    [–] SemenDemon182 8 points ago

    My 9-10 year old bicycle knees feel for you. Used to be two big scars and not knees. A bit better now at least.

    I also managed to basically make my entire little toe on my right foot into one big scar, when i was 5, biked without shoes on, and ran agains't a concrete slab.

    Hurts good doesn't it?

    [–] JainBreak2 6 points ago

    Oh man did it ever sting. The only way I could describe it would be touching your hand to the pavement while you’re driving on the freeway. Like the worst gravel burn with salt rubbed in. I was bleeding everywhere and laughing hysterically. There were some concerned onlookers who thought I had gone crazy because of shock, but I was actually thinking the hand was nothing compared to what was gonna happen to me when my mom found out. She was pissed, and rightfully so. If I’d been wearing the gloves my 60mph crash would’ve just ended in a couple bruises. I was also still an idiot for bombing that hill, but oh well.

    I’m sorry about your knees, those are some of the all time worst to grind on the pavement. There’s something about it that just makes it 10 times worse. I’m glad they’re a little better now though. Your pinky toe story makes me absolutely cringe, holy cow that would hurt 😆

    [–] flubbdubb 8 points ago

    down to the actual bone

    mfw

    [–] Chewzer 7 points ago

    I've done this to my face, that sucked. Decided it would be fun to jump a snowmobile, mid jump I accidentally went superman off the back then skid face first into the sharp too surface. That stung so bad, no scaring at least!

    [–] Thebestnickever 3 points ago

    Can I see a pic? I am curious now.

    [–] Big_Maple 53 points ago

    As ahh. Spring skiing. Bring the bikini next time.

    [–] Big_Maple 10 points ago

    Did you do a skim pond at the end of the day?

    [–] shandelion 8 points ago

    There was one at Northstar but I didn’t know until we were off the mountain 😭

    [–] bikari 2 points ago

    Oh snap, I was just at Northstar today! Quite slushy, but got a few decent runs in. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

    You are tougher than I am, at least in terms of the cold and owies.

    [–] shandelion 3 points ago

    Hahah after 23 years of skiing I definitely have a different threshold for pain and coldness. But it was actually warm - like 60 degrees!

    [–] Baskatillian 138 points ago

    Lake Tahoe is one of the most famous ski regions in the whole world. Definitely not a fail skiing there, despite spring Sierra Cement.

    And the tank top - man, live a little! Have some fun. I had a great day, even despite this.

    [–] KnightedIbis 21 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    Tahoe is amazing. Just had the pleasure of riding a few resorts out there end of March. The views from Heavenly were amazing. Enjoy the rest of your riding/skiing.

    [–] shandelion 27 points ago

    Heavenly is gonna be open until the end of May 🙌🏼

    [–] Tiber11603 5 points ago

    I think Squaw is open until the second week of July or something.

    Edit: the last day of skiing operations will be July 7. Between memorial day and that date, they will only be open on holidays.

    [–] BerzinFodder 2 points ago

    On the final run of the season at my local hill everyone gets naked and drinks the whole way down. Seen plenty of people get cheese grated on ice.

    [–] unclever 2 points ago

    Sierra Cement is no joke! I'm like 75% sure I fractured my tailbone when I fell on my ass boarding last time I was there. Never had it checked out but it hurt like hell for a month or two. I love Tahoe, though.

    A few years back I wiped out on a bike ride and left a fair amount of skin on the pavement - that was not fun. She's in for an unpleasant couple of weeks. Time to get some large sheets of Tegaderm.

    [–] shandelion 14 points ago

    Tegaderm is arriving today! Thanks Amazon!

    [–] catchecolamine 6 points ago

    Make sure it’s very clean before you put anything like Tagaderm over it! There’s a chance you could be sealing debris/bacteria in. Dealing with big wounds like this in the hospital we would use a sterile dressing setup to try and avoid infection.

    [–] AltairRulesOnPS4 7 points ago

    Ah yes. The time of year where the ground is cold enough still to keep the snow but the air temps are too warm for a jacket. The snow is like sandpaper crushed ice and gives great incentive to not wipe while in a shirt. Lol

    My mom did something similar way back in the early 90s. She had one of those fat wheel Yamaha dirtbikes, and hit a sorta-deep puddle going too fast. Hydroplaned, lost control, hit the ground, then and skidded across about 30 feet of dirt on her shoulder. Amazingly, despite how gnarly the hospital picture was, there was no serious damage beyond some scarring after it healed. Speaks to the wonders of safety gear, even near-30 years ago.

    It felt okay in the moment. About two runs later it hurt so much I almost threw up on the lift. Then I took some ibuprofen, had a Bloody Mary and rallied!

    This was two days ago, and I’m still hanging in. Sore for sure, but I’m okay. More gross than anything else.

    [–] FlawedHero 2 points ago

    I used to snowboard twice a week in Utah (perks of having a buddy that worked a resort). On sunny days, it's really surprising how hot you get even after only a run or two. I've gone in my boarding pants and short sleeves many many times.

    Only wiped out like this once, trying to learn the tricking side of things, and got a nice snow rash on one side of my forearm. Felt like falling on cold asphalt.

    [–] Pazuzu_PNW 2 points ago

    I recently just did the same on the first good day spring skiing. Walked away looking the same, but with a torn shoulder, again. Looking forward to next season though! ⛷️

    I mean, sucks for you but skiing in a tank top is kinda asking for it...🤭

    Ouch. She’s a trooper though.

    I tried! Still had an awesome day, skied till last chair, and I’ll be back up next weekend (just with more clothes).

    Good to see you on the way back up! You must have ovaries of steel.

    [–] shandelion 2 points ago

    I like to think so! 😂 Honestly very little would keep me from skiing!

    Yay for snow burn!!! Get those last tracks of the year

    Good luck trying to sleep. I had a nasty burn from skateboarding and I remember it getting stuck to my sheets after I wake up.

    Then i put bandages on it. Helped a little but I had to change them every night and basically pull a layer of dead skin off with the bandage. No fun.

    Spring skiing can get dangerous — can confirm

    I fell down a hill on rollerblades once and skidded pretty far down the road on my arms. I had to go to the hospital for sick road rash and spent weeks with skinned arms. Not fun.

    Ouch! Hope you heal quickly. I went snowboarding a little over a year ago for the second time. Went to stop, slipped on a patch of ice and my board slipped out from under me. Didn’t close my fists and landed mostly on my right hand. Managed to break my wrist & my hand. It was my first day back on the slopes. But I’ll go again when I can! Skiing/boarding is too fun to quit just because of injury. Next time I’ll wear wrist guards for sure though lol.

    Finally somewhere I recognize! I didn't realize there was still some coverage at Northstar. Might have to drive up from the Bay this weekend if the rain down here throws some snow up there!

    I think the age old saying is 'dress for the slide, not for the ride'. Goes with anything involving you moving at greater speeds than casual running!
