Out of the hospital today. I've got a really positive prognosis, just gotta get healed up and I can ride again.

I'd love to be riding again in March but I'm not counting on it.

I'm done with kickers though. I love them and wanted to pursue that style of riding but it's not worth the risk. My break was in a fortunate position they say. I could've been paralyzed.

there's always butters, natural features, & jibs. plenty to keep you occupied outside the jump line.

Of course, you can hurt yourself on all/any of them, or by a random toddler-missile. Perhaps some day you will decide to try jumps again, but if you're not comfortable there (and who can really blame ya) there's no shame in hanging that part of your game up.

Damn,.. PK's been open since 10 am. Groomed & looking pretty good from the snow cams,.. AND THERE'S NOBODY THERE!!

Didn't see a single rider! Wish I had gone first thing! Maybe after work tonight?

weekday day sessions are almost guaranteed to be empty.

I've got Monday off next week but since it's a school holiday they will probably be more crowded than usual. I may take the opportunity to head up to Hawk Island that morning instead of MTH/PK

Yeah,.. really like to avoid the "school" crowds. I do want to get out this week & make sure what happened with Sabatoa isn't gonna get in my head & start messing with me! Before we found out that it was a season ender & not a career ender, that he is likely to have a full recovery! I was pretty shook up!

Thanks bro. It was weird, I was simultaneously scared I broke my back as soon as it happened but also sure that it was only a pulled muscle.
