Aerial acrobatics

By saltireblue    
I wish: a) I was 30 years younger, and b) I possessed the spherical objects these youngsters own. I cannot begin to understand how they do this on skies. But there again, I always landed on my head on a trampoline, so I am pretty useless at this sort of thing. When I go skiing, I like to keep the skies in contact with the snow! Why hang upside-down doing an impression of a helicopter?
I'm just an old fogey, I guess.Sad
Anyway, the last of these from last weekend on the piste. No collision occurred this time, thankfully.
Thanks for looking and thanks for bothering.Smile

Yet another brilliant image Malc - I go one further than you and like to keep my feet on the ground without any skis in between GrinGrinGrin - but then I am an old fogey AND a coward

The acrobatic skill of some youngsters is very impressive - my cousin's son used to dot this daredevil kind of stuff till he had a major fall last year - wrecked his hip and will walk with a limp for the rest of his life. We never thought of consequences either when we were young.

one of the best ski shots I have ever seen. I can imagine that Norwegian Scots get tempted here Smile
Although all my ancestors come from cold places, I prefer 30+ myself, spent too much time in the outback I think.
