 Ski Instructors and God and heaven 

 A ski instructor died and went to heaven. He saw St. Peter at the Pearly Gate but there was a line waiting to get in, so our ski instructor went up to the head of the line and told St. Peter that he was a ski instructor and he should therefore be allowed to go in without waiting.
   St. Peter said, "Even though you are a ski instructor, you must go to the end of the line and wait your turn like all the rest."
   Not wanting to jeopardize his chances, our ski instructor went to the end of the line as told, grumbling to himself. Presently our ski instructor saw another ski instructor go up to St. Peter at the head of the line. St. Peter looked up and waved that person on in. So our ski instructor went back up to the head of the line and said to St. Peter, "Why did you let that ski instructor go to the head of the line and not me?"
   St. Peter explained, "That was not a ski instructor:  That was God. He just thinks he is a ski instructor."


What is the difference between God and a ski instructor?
God does not think he is a ski instructor!


A skier just arriving at the Pearly Gate in Heaven sees Stein Eriksen carving a set of beautiful arcs on the side of a cloud.
"Wow!" says the admiring newbie to St. Peter, "I didn't know Stein was here."
"Oh, that's not Stein," says St. Peter, "That's God. He just wants to be like Stein."

   A ski instructor appeared before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.  "Have you ever done anything of particular merit?' St. Peter asked.
   "Well, I can think of one thing," the
 instructor offered.  "On a trip to the Black Hills out in  South Dakota I came upon a gang of bikers who were threatening a young woman.  I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen. So, I approached the largest and most heavily tattooed biker and smacked him in his face... Kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose ring, and threw it on the ground. I yelled, 'Now, back off!'  Or I'll kick the s___ out of all of you!"
   St. Peter was impressed, "When did this
   "Just a couple of minutes ago

A Skier's Dictionary

Alp: One of a number of ski mountains in Europe. Also a shouted request for assistance made by a European skier on a U.S. mountain. An appropriate reply: "What Zermatter?"
A common descriptive term for boots or skis that are designed to perform equally poorly under a variety of conditions and over many different types of terrain.
One of the few actual perils skiers face that needlessly frighten timid individuals away from the sport. See also: Blizzard, Fracture, Frostbite, Hypothermia, Lift Collapse.
Automatic mechanisms that protect skiers from potentially serious injury during a fall by releasing skis from boots, sending the skis skittering across the slope where they trip two other skiers, and so on and on, eventually causing the entire slope to be protected from serious injury.
There are 206 in the human body. No need for dismay, however: TWO bones of the middle ear have never been broken in a skiing accident.
Cross-Country Skiing:
Traditional Scandinavian all-terrain snow-travelling technique. It's good exercise. It doesn't require the purchase of costly lift tickets. It has no crowds or lines. It isn't skiing. See Cross-Country Something-Or-Other.|
Cross-Country Something-or-Other: Touring on skis along trails in scenic wilderness, gliding through snow-hushed woods far from the hubbub of the ski slopes, hearing nothing but the whispery hiss of the skis slipping through snow and the muffled tinkle of car keys dropping into the puffy powder of a deep, wind-sculpted drift.
A few simple warm-ups to make sure you're prepared for the slopes: *Tie a cinder block to each foot with old belts and climb a flight of stairs. *Sit on the outside of a second-story window ledge with your skis on and your poles in your lap for 30 minutes. *Bind your legs together at the ankles, lie flat on the floor; then, holding a banana in each hand, get to your feet.
Designed to be tight enough around the wrist to restrict circulation, but not so closefitting as to allow any manual dexterity; they should also admit moisture from the outside without permitting any dampness within to escape.
One of four fundamental forces in nature that affect skiers. The other three are the strong force, which makes bindings jam; the weak force, which makes ankles give way on turns; and electromagnetism, which produces dead batteries in expensive ski-resort parking lots. See Inertia.
Inertia: Tendency of a skier's body to resist changes in direction or speed due to the action of Newton's First Law of Motion. Goes along with these other physical laws: * Two objects of greatly different mass falling side by side will have the same rate of descent, but the lighter one will have larger hospital bills. * Matter can neither be created nor destroyed, but if it drops out of a parka pocket, don't expect to encounter it again in our universe. * When an irresistible force meets an immovable object, an unethical lawyer will immediately appear.
Maneuver in which an expert skier makes a controlled jump just ahead of a bump. Beginners can execute a controlled prefall just before losing their balance and, if they wish, can precede it with a prescream and a few pregroans.
The bruised area on the front of the leg that runs from the point where the ache from the wrenched knee ends to where the soreness from the strained ankle begins.
A shout to alert people ahead that a loose ski is coming down the hill. Another warning skiers should be familiar with is "Avalanche!" - which tells everyone that a hill is coming down the hill.
One who pays an arm and a leg for the opportunity to break them.
Your knees should be flexed, but shaking slightly; your arms straight and covered with a good layer of goose flesh; your hands forward, palms clammy, knuckles white and fingers icy, your eyes a little crossed and darting in all directions. Your lips should be quivering, and you should be mumbling, "Why?"
Norwegian for "Hey guys! Wait up!" Or, Norwegian for "Face plant!"
Half the binding, half the speed! Or, "Free you heel, ski for real!"
The Scandinavian ski god of acheth and painth.
Traverse: To ski across a slope at an angle; one of two quick and simple methods of reducing speed.
The other method. 


This new invention should end the debate about whether the snowboard or the ski is the best tool for snow sliding!
