Wipeout!

By Ann Driggers

Here are some recent shots of my friends and family (probably ex after this post), who shall remain nameless, demonstrating the fine technique of the skiing wipeout. Please note they are all extremely good skiers and were performing these wipeouts purely for demonstration purposes. The following photos are not representative of their typical performance on skis. No one was injured during the demonstration. Disclaimer: Do not attempt to try this at home or without the supervision of professional wipeout artists such as these. Wipeout #1: A nice cruise through the shaded woods, a flat forest road lurks to capture the joyous but unsuspecting skier.....

Wipeout #2: A fun little jump looks good from above, but the landing angle was a recipe for disaster...strange the photographer didn't point this out from her vantage point below....

Wipeout #3: My favorite of all. This person just loves snow so much that they rather be at one with it. Not satisfied with faceshots while skimming along the surface, they prefer to flip upside down for a complete immersion experience. The problem with this technique is they eventually stop moving. And it gets awfully wet and cold if you make a habit of it. Still, makes for a cool photo.
