No big deal. Not like I'm at risk of falling on ice again this season.
yeah, i know some kid who was doing a season in the same resort as me who fell on his neck while riding. he went to the doctors got x-rays and they said it was ok. he kept riding for a few more weeks then went home and had an MRI scan because his neck still felt sore. the MRI showed he broke his fucking neck. the moral of the story: an MRI is better (and more expensive) than an x-ray. and get health insurance.
