Yeah, I've walked on canted surfaces and thought it actually felt good on my knees. I was already planning on doing that since premade orthotics aren't working.

I run and hit a stairmaster like mad. My knees aren't like hydraulics but they're pretty strong.

No shit it's not Sugar Bowl.

Go see a ski boot fitting specialist that understands how to make a arch support for someone with your issues. My guess is he'll recommend canting the footbed. It'll feel completely weird when you walk but the second you strap in on snow you'll be like this is money. The other thing is your knees are weak get your ass on a stationary bike and build them up with low impact work outs. Third its not sugarbowl its you.

I have a hurt knee right now but it's not from snowboarding, per say. I was drinking a week ago last saturday, and went to jump over a small metal fence in a parking lot, and bashed the inside of my knee on it. At the time it hardly hurt at all. A few days later and after riding on it a few days, it started to hurt more.

Do you think i could have done any damage other than just a nasty bruise? I hope it's just a good bruise, and by riding I probably aggravated that bruise.

Running and snowboarding excercise different muscles and put stress on different ligaments. I sprained my MCL, and can still jog a bit but any lateral movement is out of the question.

Last year my knee didn't hurt so bad immediately after falling so I kept riding for another couple of hours. I went to the lodge and had lunch. After eating I tried to stand up and I thought I was going to die from the pain. The doc said that the sprain would have been a grade 1 had I not kept on riding. Instead, I aggravated it and it became a solid grade 2 sprain.

I saw a doc yesterday and he said my ankles, knees and hips are out of alignment and no amount of knee strength would have likely prevented the injury.

I got referrals for an orthopaedist and a podiatrist. They're going to fix my knee and then get everything aligned up good and proper so this doesn't happen again. If all goes well I should be back to riding opening day next season. I sure as hell hope so since I just spent a good bit of cash on new equipment and I'm already in for a season pass next year.
