Knee Pain and binding position

I havent been able to get out much this year, which sucks with all the snow we have had here in the northeast, but I finally got up to Cannon Mtn in NH and had a hell of a day.

There was some heavier powder as it was blizzard conditions all day. When i was really putting the wood to it and powering through stuff I was finding that my front knee(right, i'm goofy) was starting to hurt on the outside towards the back. A quick glance at the anatomy of the knee makes me think it was my LCL.

What would be a recommended remedy for this, should I be angling the front binding more to keep the twisting force off the knee?

TIA.

Stop counter rotating your upper body.
It's hard to say without seeing how you actually ride.

Play with the angles. Put on your boots and strap in on the floor. Flex like you would riding and position like you would riding. Adjust angle and width until you don't get pressure in your squatted stance. You're probably a bit to wide or standing up too straight

A lot of knee pain comes from weak glutes. Don't know how much you have been working out but I would try doing some squats, lunges, bridges, clam shells (google) etc. If you have been doing core, leg/glute excercises then maybe it's something else.
Since you havent been out much this yr and you were in heavy powder sounds like you just over-did things. I would work on those before you go up again. Its easy to underestimate how much effort boarding is. But we really put our body through a lot during a day of boarding. Ice is always good and cheap if you have a lot of soreness.

I think you are probably right on this point. Its a new board (Flow Era) and I really haven't played around with it, but I do think the reference stance is wider than i am used too and probably not meant for bombing around. I destroyed my daily driver, a Rossi One magtek, at Snowbird in december so I am forced to ride this for the time being.

Do you workout at least 3 days a week? If you don't do a leg day and other core exercises this could be your problem
