One season, we conducted an essay contest entitled "My Suckiest Ski Moment" in which the winner received a free pair of skiboards. We weren't quite sure what to expect from our readers, but what we got was entertaining confirmation that long skiing and snowboarding can indeed suck. We got so many entries that we can't post them all, but here are some random samples. You'll laugh. You'll cringe. You'll relate. The entries have been arranged into three categories:
Most Embarrassing Ski Moments
For some, not only were these accounts their most embarrassing moment on the slopes, but of their whole life.
Mountains of Mistakes
These are the people your parents warned you about. Stay far, far away from them.
Super Suckiness on the Slopes
Some days you just shouldn't get out of bed.
