so today i dont have many lessons and i guess by this time every year its normally only privates, and semi privates and isnce im a ski instructor helper not an instructor. So im only needed when there is more than 4 people and they need help...most of this season i have been doing the 5 week camps. They ended about the 1st week in february. Since then its been only the school groups.
So today one behind the other two very odd and very rare things happened i think i was possesed by bad luck. 1st of all my glove gets stuck on the j bar and makes it around the wheel at the top then drops in a grassy area. So i skied to the bottom and told the liftee who was sitting in a tube watching the sun go down, and told him that my glove made it around the wheel at the top and fell into an area no one should ever visit if its moving. He stopped the jbar and i cmimbed of a catch cable that if someone goes through it will stop....went over and grabbed my glove no rips or tears (though there was alreay alot of cuts from grapping the wire without the bar and jletting in run through the glove....i should have found a glove protector we used to have for riope tows. Anyways 20 mins later im taking down the characters (piglet, tigger etc) woooden characters to ski around and theres a stubborn stubby that i cant get out so i go in and grab a metal key thats helps get it out...neither one works so i tried digging with the handle on the key and it still wouldnt come out, so i went to the liftee and found a shovel and as soon as i got 1/2 way to the stubby tyler the local snowboard instructor goes by (while i was digging he noticed what i was trying to do...turned it like counter clockwise and lifted and came out....took me 20 minutes for him to take it out in like 30 seconds...unreal eh!!!
so im over there tomnorrow monday and maybe tuesday and who knows what our school group schedule will be like i know theres only like 4 or 5 school groups left..most of them are ones that cancelled when the weather was like -20 or like just after it rained...so theres not much left.
