Saving a Skier’s Life at Snowbird, Utah! A True Toastmasters Story – OHS013

A skier lies in the snow about to die

Saving the Life of a Skier at Snowbird ski Resort in Utah. This was partly a Toastmasters “After Dinner” speech from one of the Advanced Manuals.

Here is a story of how I saved a skier’s life at Snowbird ski resort in Utah. That was the year I boarded 70 days and was in most excellent physical condition. The snow had ended here in Boise, Idaho and the Bogus Basin Ski Resort was closed. I wanted to get to 70 days and always wanted to ride the greatest snow on earth. So I got in my car, grabbed my snowboard gear and my Aikido clothes. I also wanted to train some Aikido at night. I was in really good fitness and the Aikido in Salt Lake City, Utah was a sweet as the snow at Snowbird. I had no idea what was about to happen on my last of three days on my last ride up the last tram to take my last ride down the mountain.

After a most glorious three days of snowboarding and Aikido I was on my very last tram ride up and what was about to be my very last ride down. I had never been to high on a mountain. The skiing in that area was about to close and no one would be allowed up that high at night. I was totally alone and thought watching the sun set would be only add to my experience. As I sat gazing at the sunset on top of a mountain I looked down at the path I was about to surf the snow when I saw the strangest thing. I saw the man who’s like I was about to save.

If you have ever heard a man from Florida tell a story about a one handed guy who saved his life in Snowbird, Utah pass this along to him!
