One lucky liitle lad

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Whilst at the CF yesterday I witnessed one very lucky liitle lad. Only half the slope was open, but to be fair it was not too busy or crowded. However there were large icy patches on the bottom section of the slope. I was approaching the hump near the bottom, and was not hanging around, when a little 6 or 7 year old lad came flying past me like I was standing still. He was totally out of control. There are large crash cushions across the bottom to prevent injury. God knows how, but he managed to find the only gap in it, sailed straight through and crashed into the wooden ski racks going full tilt. People rushed to see if he was ok. He was dazed but didnít appear to be bleeding. Thankfully he was wearing a helmet. @audfart, who was at the top of the slope said the lad had lost control almost immediately and straight lined it from the top. He was lucky he didnít do himself a serious injury. Shocked

 Obviously A snowHead isn't a real person

Seen exactly the same thing happen there myself, couple of years back. Recall that the lad I saw wasn't quite as unscathed. He might not have found a gap, either: more like cannoned straight through the cushioned barriers, sending them - and him - flying.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Got taken out by an 8 year old young girl at CF some years ago when I was standing at the bottom of the slope behind the safety netting. She straight lined the slope and took out the netting and me. Both of us ended up in the casualty room and her parents were called over the tannoy (they were watching her ski and weren't on the slope with her). On their arrival the father remarked "oh no not again, she never listens"

Seems this was a regular occurrence, makes you wonder why no one was accompanying her on the slope and indeed why the slope staff didn't intervene
