If Ski Maps Were Accurate - 2/25/11
Just got back from a weekend trip to Mammoth, which went well except for a drunken tubing accident where one guy ripped his face open and one girl tore her ACL. No one was injured skiing, however. And they say skiing is dangerous.

As I rode the chair lift and studied the names of the trails than nine-year-olds would soon shred down much faster than I, I couldn't help but be reminded of a post I once did about how ski runs are named. Specifically, how Black Diamonds are always named intimidating things like "Coffin Nail" and Green Circles are always name wimpy things like "Sissy's Way Home". Only the Blue Squares are actually creative.

So here's my modified Mammoth Mountain map, the way things should be named.



I wrote a book!
