BurtonAvenger And people call me an asshole because I will land on dipshits that sit down in the park in blind spots. I've had back to back serious concussions in under a weeks time. It's not the wisest to ride 2 days after having a serious one but you can do it. Docs always go with the grim prognosis I've realized if you're worried get a helmet and don't send it as hard. If you're not send it.

Milo303 Make sure you can fly also.... When I got my concussion here in CO and still lived in KS, they almost didn't release me to fly home

But as the others have said, go to your check up, and maybe you can still ride in Utah.

Maybe you could get some sort of dr's note and get some sort of credit for your flight and cancel your part of the hotel etc if you aren't cleared.

I was stupid for several weeks after my incident, you most likely won't want to ride that way anyways if your head is acting like mine was.

It's not an all bad thing, this season is a loss. We all want powder, yada yada, but man, don't crush your head for permanent

Sorry you got banged up, I feel for ya

Your helmet needs replaced. Don't ride again without replacing it if you hit your head that hard with a helmet on. It's just like a motorcycle helmet, it's designed for one hit.

Go to the checkup though, any info the doc can give you will be beneficial.

About the parent thing. If I were to land on someone sitting in the landing without that person already being injured, I'd stop, wait with them for ski patrol but wouldn't even consider apologizing. Letting your kid hang out in a big jump line is like letting your kid play on a snow covered highway when a driver can't see over a hill in the road. The problem is that half the time I see someone sitting in the landing or riding between large jumps, usually the parent is right there with them.

gmore10 Concussions are a serious thing i had 4 or 5 two being really bad and have been told by my doctors that i shouldn't play rugby anymore and i said fuck it if i die on a rugby field at least i die happy. Anyway give sometime and if you had memory loss its pretty bad i had one where i couldn't remember the whole day.

Redmond513 damn..sorry to hear but it could have been a lot worse. First thing I would do is get a new helmet. If you do end of boarding in Utah, you really need to take it easy and just cruise. You fall and hit your head again it could be bad. I got my first concussion in mid December. Like you, I have no memory of anything for a 5 hour period and my friends told me that I kept asking the same 3 questions every 15 mins.

snowklinger get it out of your head that you have to avoid them, probably would've been better off just plowing them, they'd learn. nobody would've faulted you.


I realize this seems caustic, but if its me or you, and its your fault, sorry, i'm taking you out, I got family to report to as well.

Also.

If you don't have a helmet. Buy one.

If you had a helmet I imagine you need a new one.

Argo I would probably just do the checkup before the trip, if they say no then I'd go to Utah and chill... I'd likely just cruise some greens too but that would be my dumb decision to make......

Death This happens all too many times and is the only reason I am pro park passes. It gets the kids like this out of the park.
