Worth a dead arm? Oh yes. It’s moments like this that make a holiday, or a season, or a life. Because in the end, what more is there to life than the simple search for a few laughs? The humourist Mark Twain – another of Whitelines’ favourite quotees – once asked: “What is human life?” After a while he came to the conclusion that “the first third is a good time; the rest is remembering about it.”

So there we have it: one day you’ll be sat in a chair, decrepit and old, unable to drop cliffs and hike through waist deep powder. So get out there, hit the cliffs, make some turns, drop in, float like a butterfly and above all else – spray your friends.
