Here are my injuries, all last season (my first):

1. Concussion
2. Hematoma on my ass about 3 inches in diameter
3. bruised my tailbone (still hurts a yr later when i sit for long periods of time)
4. sprained my knee
5. ice burn about 7 inches long

Every time i hurt myself it just made me want it more. (I also did not have the right instruction) Should have been a sign I wasn't any good, but I refused to accept that.

Every turn is a blessing.

3 seasons ago i separated my shoulder on a wooden fence post, that's been a fun one to contend with ever since. 2 seasons ago i got a concussion with effects that lasted through the next summer, also fun to deal with. killed that year's grades and i could feel my IQ drop considerably for a long time.

Licked a frozen metal flag pole.

How long you out of commission for?

Seperated my AC joint for the second season in a row. I did it 2 weeks ago and by far the worse injury. Before that, it was a broken tailbone. Both sucked though

My worst injury...in one fall I broke my wrist in 2 places fractured my forearm in 2 places and had 3 bone chips in my elbow.

When I used to work at WInter Park...1 death (guy had a heart attack going down the hill and then ran into a tree; 1 guy broke his right femur, hip, pelvic bone, dislocated his shoulder, right arm and wrist; A snowblader completely turned the bottom half of his leg around and then 2 more kids that died from brain injuries (mountain was closed for the season and some genius scholastic team took the lift up to eat at the restaurant, they saw the stack of willy bags; giant blue pads that wrap around the bottom of chair lift poles, and decided to ride one down a black diamond run, the 2 boys in front jumped off before they hit the chair lift pole, 2 poor girls on the back did not.
