20. Funniest thing you have seen/done on the slopes?

Chemmy: The first time I skied an olympic run aged 8 i got so excited that I had to spend a penny. I didn't want to ruin the experience so peeled off as quick as possible to the side - took down my one piece (yep that cool!) and my helmet (not sure why!) and bent my legs only to see my precious sticker clad helmet start rolling down the hill. It was a fast decision - a toss up between covering up my modesty and losing my helmet or chasing my helmet, one piece around ankles down the olympic run. The latter won!
