NYSnow I met up with my friend who lives in Germany last March and we rented a car and drove to Verbier, Switzerland for a snowboarding trip. On day 1, 5 hours into the trip I got injured. The trails were steep and I was riding a new longer board that I was not used to (mistake). I was also not wearing any wrist protection (biggest mistake). I was trying to keep up with my friend near the bottom of the mountain and it was icy and I caught an edge and fell backwards hard mostly onto my left wrist. I knew it was broken and stopped by the local clinic to get it casted. The next day I drove back with my friend to Germany for 8 hours with one arm (she did not have a drivers license) and then caught an earlier flight back. One of my friends is a orthopedic surgeon and fixed my fracture the next day since it was an unstable fracture and would not be able to be treated non-operatively. Fortunately it healed great.

Christafa I am SO glad I didn't read this thread before I went to New Zealand. Farkin hell some of you guys have suffered pure demonic agony.

It's been a week since my first season and my knees and ribs still hurt What am I to dooooo? I've decided I'll leave it for a while and see.

Landing on the tailbone is the worst pain ever... sheesh. Fkn icy chairlifts and fkn skiers who lie in the middle of the exit ramp complaining they're too fat to get up.
