Ouch! When we skied together up in the UP, Minocqua or the Noquemanon Trail, you never used to fall....let alone trash your equipment. I'll bet with all the Birkies you've skied, you never broke a pole there either. And some of those years conditions were nothing but churned up ice!
The writing is on the wall: time to consider coming out of the woods, buying a set of clubs, taking lessons, and enjoying Pets
the way all us old duffers do!
