the only thing you hurt was your pride, :roflmao:
I was pretty annoyed at myself - not at the fall per se, but because my plan had been to get comfortable with straight lining that very tiny short section, in anticipation of jumping it, which everyone else was already doing. It's short, but it sure felt like I got going fast, so that my legs completely ignored the directive to ski DOWN, and instead decided to ski ACROSS. (Which I still think would have been fine if the binding then hadn't decided to release.)

Reminds me of the traverse from Siberia to North Bowl at Squaw. I did it on a powder day and when I finally turned into the bowl, I heard cheering behind me. Not being accustomed to powder at that point in the season, I fell after a turn or two. Oh well.

Video bump. A friend of mine went down on Monument's soft bumps, Mammoth 7/5/19. . @Rainbow Jenny, you may find this amusing.
