Riding with a cracked high back? :\

I cracked my highback the other week and have been riding 3 times since. The crack runs from the bottom of the highback up to about halfway. The crack stays together pretty well when I'm strapped in, but I know when I go toeside that mad strain is pry being put on it and bending it in two. I haven't felt so much as a slip when shredding pretty hard since it cracked, but I'm kinda getting scared to go.

Why not just buy a new f*cking highback you ask? Well, I was out of work for 2 weeks cuz of surgery (that sucked up all my $$) and I'm presently damn near broke living in Bear with a season pass. Doc said I can finally board on Friday and I want to board at least one day this weekend before I start work Monday.....

What do you guys think

try GOOP- it's this ridic strong glue- holds anything together. Don't know how'd it'd work in the cold weather, but it's cheap and worth a try.

Safety wire that SOB

Snow or sun, not rain
I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.
