Funniest Snowsports memory? Skiing in Italy after teaching for the day, saw a small mound of snow to jump off, unfortunately it was soft heavy snow, my skis stopped but I didn’t, I came out of my skis and went head first in to the snow, rolled up on to my head and did a flip landing back on my feet without my skis running down the hill, needless to say the rest of the instructors I was skiing with were in hysterics…
