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

A skier just arriving at the Pearly Gate in
Heaven sees Stein Eriksen carving a set of beautiful arcs on the

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 happen?"
"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?"
All-Mountain: 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
Avalanche: One of the few actual perils skiers face
that needlessly frighten timid individuals away from the sport.
See also: Blizzard, Fracture, Frostbite, Hypothermia, Lift
Bindings: 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.
Bones: 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
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.
Exercises: 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.
Gloves: 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.
Gravity: 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.
Prejump: 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.
Shin: 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.
Ski!: 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.
Skier: One who pays an arm and a leg for the
opportunity to break them.
Stance: 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
Telemark: Norwegian for "Hey guys! Wait up!"
Or, Norwegian for "Face plant!"
Telemarking: Half the binding, half the speed! Or,
"Free you heel, ski for real!"
Thor: The Scandinavian ski god of acheth and
Traverse: To ski across a slope at an
angle; one of two quick and simple methods of reducing speed.
Tree: The other method.
new invention should end the debate about whether the snowboard or the
ski is the best tool for snow sliding!
