    I'm trying to compile a list of snowboarding and skiiing terminology, such as...

    - pow pow
    - knee deep
    - snowblind
    - etc...

    Hit me with whatever you have. Words with your definition of it earns you a gold star.

    Blower: ultra deep pow day.

    Face shots: powder blowing up and over your head.

    Snorkel day: pow so deep you really needed a snorkel to breathe.

    White smoke: fine mist of the light champagne powder.

    Corn: spring snow that resembles corn, being similar to pellets.

    What up Chris! Kern and I both got speeding tix last time we went to ride lift accessed...

    hang 10 - a guy with a 10 inch penis on skis

    shred - naked photos of your ex before you put on your skis

    goofy foot - the left or right foot of a kid who has a fucked up foot and walks funny on skis

    snow blind - when a person asks you if you can see and you respond 'snowi'mblind'. sounds like snow blind.

    the larry - put a cast around your leg and talk about how you broke it running the deamon hill all day while picking up hot ladies

    Yard Sale - Skier who falls and loses skis, poles, hat, whatever all over the hill

    Scorpion - Snowboarder who catches toeside edge (going fast) falls face first, arms in superman position while the board, arcs over their head like a scorpion tail as they slide in the snow -- my favorite fall to watch

    Yard Sale - Skier who falls and loses skis, poles, hat, whatever all over the hill

    correction: same is true for any snowboarder in 2003 who shorted the landing on the 110'+ super-gap at Aspen....

    scorpion, made me laugh out loud, I've seen that manuver countless times

    Blower, has a whole differnet meaning over here, a negative one. Especially when they run the blowers all day while your riding to build a base, and you get blinded almost every turn.

    huckfest - something i am getting too old for.

    tracked out - what you get when you're not on dawn patrol for a pow day

    is there a good word for people who tuck their pants into their boots? i usually just call em kooks, but i think a nice title for this type of person would be in order.
