Default Rocked at Waterville Valley

I just got rocked at Waterville Valley. Knocked out, concussion, and bruised pelvis. If it was icy I think I'd be dead, or at least eating through a straw.

Bluebird skies, 35 degrees, and noone on the hill. 2nd run of the day, dropped into True Grit at full speed...half way down ended up coming into a roller and couldn't avoid it. Hit it almost wide open, got tossed 20 feet and knocked out instantly. Slid 50 feet and came to with my bro and ski patrol yelling my name. SP asked me what I had for breakfast and I couldn't remember.

Broke my high back, head phones, and blew the lenses clean out of my EG2's. Guess I shouldn't have dropped it without taking a few test runs. And I wasn't wearing a helmet. Looks like I'll be ordering one today.
