Binding breaks on first run. I struggled to get down the hill.

Hilary captured this last week while we were skiing at Mt. Hood Meadows. It was my first run on a pair of skis I picked up a swap just a few months earlier. Right binding explodes about halfway down the first run. Managed to get down without taking the other ski off, but it took a while. Luckily, I had my ’96 rossis in the car for backup.

The rest of the day was a blast. Great snow, not too many people, and great company. The rest of my gear worked great.
