I took my first run on a snowboard at camelback back in '94 and frequented both mountains till about 2000. I preferred Windham by far, mainly for the park. But I'm sure a lot has changed in 13 years. How I miss those 3-4ft camelback super pipe walls....The even bother with a pipe anymore?
They still got that huge rock drop in the park at Windham? Took me several hours to work up the nerve to pull a 360 off it. Damn near swallowed my knees cause I overshot the transition. Man those were the days!
Oh, '99. Thats when I dislocated my elbow at Windham on one of those dbl diamonds. My tip hit a hole in the ground and I put my arm out. Didn't realize it basically ejected me into the ground. I slammed pretty good. My friends asked if I was OK. I nodded. I stood up and realized my left arm was just hanging at my side and I couldnt move it. I went down to my knees and just shook my head and said no.....lol
Freaked me out more than anything, I couldnt even lie down in the stretcher the pain was so bad. I sat back to back with a buddy of mine and bounced all the way down with the snow blowers blowing back in my face.
It was cool though, slid me onto those meat roller thingies right into the first aid. Got x-rays. I didn't wanna wait 3 hours before I got to a hospital so I had the guys try to reduce my elbow. Took 4 tries before they finally got it in.
