Milo303 I still don't remember a several hour timeframe from when I got knocked out cold while riding. Never will

RVM As long as you are in control and aren't hurting anyone else go as fast as you can. I know I do.

I also agree with you. I think I got a concussion my second day learning to snowboard. Haven't really hit my head hard since. *knocks on wood*

and to the other person, yes my name is very fitting hah. the term breakneck speed comes to mind...

killclimbz Damn, nice head slam. I was definitely not at A-Basin that day. Glad you are alright. One hell of an impact.

Half the reason I wanna know what happened is it was the first time I ever got knocked clean out like that and it was my first seizure. I'm sure the impact was massive because I have a head like a rock. I'll be lucky if I ever remember what happened though unfortunately.

The ski patroller, a cool guy named Leif if I remember correctly, said he got to me post ichtal for a bit and once I came around everyone was surprised how quick I got my wits about me. Nothing broke and there was no internal bleeding or anything severe, just a wicked concussion and very bad whiplash. The helmet got split from the impact, but thank god I was wearing one as I used to never even consider them. This is concussion number 4 for me, I just wish I could remember it.

You definitely need some medical tests done if you were seizing...
