|Elena Curtoni testing out B net|
Either way you slice it, these nets have kept many a bad crash from getting worse, and are a huge part of making ski racing as safe as can be. However, they are now out of date, washed up, yesterday's news. Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you... the C net. No one knows for sure whether the C stands for "cornice", or possibly "compound fracture", or maybe even "crippling concussion", but everyone can tell it's effective. I bring you Alessandra Vidori, testing out what this technology can do.
Are you impressed? Are you sold? Are you impressed she's alive and emailed that to me herself? I am. I sure am. C net, coming to a mountain near you. Crashes to firstname.lastname@example.org. Slalom Ace out.
