Funniest Snowsports memory? On my mountain safety exam. I turned up to the exam with a displaced fracture of the hand. One day I was tasked with leading the group off-piste and I decided to choose a tree line I had been eyeing up all week. As I was riding down I fell into a stream hidden beneath the snow. Concerned about protecting my broken hand I stuck my arm straight up in the air as I fell. The rest of the group found it hilarious because all they could see was my arm sticking straight up out of the snow. Meanwhile I was a bit wet as well as embarrassed!
