My worst injury...in one fall I broke my wrist in 2 places fractured my forearm in 2 places and had 3 bone chips in my elbow.

When I used to work at WInter Park...1 death (guy had a heart attack going down the hill and then ran into a tree; 1 guy broke his right femur, hip, pelvic bone, dislocated his shoulder, right arm and wrist; A snowblader completely turned the bottom half of his leg around and then 2 more kids that died from brain injuries (mountain was closed for the season and some genius scholastic team took the lift up to eat at the restaurant, they saw the stack of willy bags; giant blue pads that wrap around the bottom of chair lift poles, and decided to ride one down a black diamond run, the 2 boys in front jumped off before they hit the chair lift pole, 2 poor girls on the back did not.
