Ric, how's your shoulder man? Are you using a video camera for those pics? That seems like it would be easier than with a camera.

I think it was the next year he shattered his eardrum jumping in competition. It even broke his helmit. I don't think he ever jumped again.
Good to hear you are ok , I know all about the ribs Ouch!! I have had falls like John described as well. Luckily I haven't been hit by the ski but have bent my back in the reverse C . That was three weeks ago and I am still feeling it. Funny I never crash like that in open water, just when attempting a course.

I know the secret how to determine which foot goes forward. Anyone have their own ideas?

Sure, I've heard a few different ideas. You want your dominant foot rear. Most commonly it ends up being the right foot. However to determine, have someone kick a soccer ball, or see what foot they step off with when running up a flight of stairs.

Dude, soccer and stairs don't have much to do with skiing. The dominant thing is steamin' hot though.

doesn't it go something like have someone push you backwards and which ever foot you put back to stabilize yourself is the foot you put in the back binding?

Something along those lines.
