Argo Glad the lessons got you over the hump. Its a great feeling.

Dont worry about skating, I have yet to meet an amputee that skates well.... I have met and ridden the lifts with quite a few.

The program in Copper got robbed. Here is a link to them and maybe helping them recover. Whoe the hell steals this kind of stuff. Its all highly customized for amputees and useless to people without the need for them.

Last weekend, I went from greens in the morning to blacks by afternoon. I can't tell you exactly what happened but suddenly my body just knew what to do. Happy, happy, happy. Hope you are all well!

PS My skating skills look like I'm a complete and total bunny hill noob, which is kind of funny. Watching the liftie's faces and other boarders/skiers as we get on lifts that only service blues/blacks is hilarious.
Stoked You are now in the belly of the beast

....and we all have those humbl'n lift days...had one last Saturday...fell exiting 3 times, ran in to the garbage can, knocked over a gate and fell on my ass...all in the lift line...and all in 1 day...wearing my steezy pantz .

As a snowboard patroller, they did the right thing. Take it easy and watch for signs and symptoms! Head injuries can go downhill fast, if you're not feeling right, get to an ER and get properly checked.

We had to airlift a guy to the hospital the other day due to a head injury, now he's in a medically induced coma as far as I know. Sounds like he might have been conscious for a period of time after the initial injury. Not trying to scare you, but listen to your body on this one.

Noreaster Hun, take a rest. Like for a month or two. Concussions open up a whole new world of hurt, the one you don't want to explore. Your hub is right to stay by your side as well. There will be other storms. Get better and don't rush to get out there too quick.

chomps1211 Ditto neni & wrath. Symptoms of a concussion can be slow to show up.

But the talking gibberish is definitely one of the signs. Just go easy & if you feel at all off? Just skip it.


As neni pointed out,.. The season is barely begun. (...or in my case, has yet to begin!)

Lots of days for you to enjoy.
(Then again... A nice soft, deep pow day is lower risk for hard impacts!!) lol

Hope you're feeling better soon!

wrathfuldeity get some rest and see how you feel in the morning...but take it easy...and you don't want to be banging the head again/right away

Vibes!

I had hurt my ankle (minor) earlier in the day so I was riding a little flat. Caught the front edge of my board and fell like a tree slamming my face/head into the ground. May or may not have passed out for a second or two. Hubby says once I starting talking I was not making sense (so that was pretty much normal). Then when I got up I became quite dizzy and at that point ski patrol brought me down the mountian. Boo. Big time headache today and my neck is bothering me. Black eye and side of my face looks like I have road rash. Tomorrow is going to be an great day out (big storm today) and hubby doesn't want to go because he is worried about me. I guess that's sweet but....

Soubds like concussion... it was good that they brought you down. Talking nonsense or repeating the same stuff over and over again is a serious sign for it. Ppl often are semi-conscious then; awake and talking but not fully there and further hurt themselves.

Speedy recovery! Season is still young. You'll get many more days.
