Yea, Tailbone injuries suck, a few years ago, I caught an edge really hard and bruised my tailbone real bad. Well, I kept riding since it was winter break and hit it several more times, then while in the condo I tried swinging on the loft down a half set of stairs lost my grip and landed on the last stair on my tailbone It hurt like an SOB and the whole bus trip on the way back from Temblant to CT I sat on pillow and probably ate half a bottle of advil. Woke up the next morning and had a black nub on my tailbone, lol, It looked like I had a tail removed, kinda like when a pitbull has its tail removed. I really wish I had a picture of it.

No bad falls this year yet, knock on wood.

I guess it's bad when you can't really remember what happened. All I remember is on Friday, I landed on my left arm and couldn't breathe for a few seconds. I stayed a few hours after that, and my arm just felt sore all weekend. But today, my shoulder hurts like hell. It's taking a real effort to use it, but at least it moves. I'm taking the week off though (can't afford to break my arm in half) and will probably get it x-rayed if it's not normal by this Friday.

Jan 1st ....2nd time boarding.... toe side of my board caught as I was trying to cut back to the left. Covered my face with my arm in time but landed on the right side of my rib cage. Pretty sure I broke it, still hurts. But was back on the board on the 3rd. Ive got a pick somewhere with my chest wrapped that my GF took. Looks like im wearing a tube top.LOL

Torn MCL courtesy of tree stump hidden under snow = 4-6 weeks


Knocked myself out a couple of weeks ago courtesy of retardo air off roller while going warp speed down a groomer. Helmet saved my butt there for sure

This is my first season but i'm doing pretty good and riding well. Anyway, I cracked a rib 3 weeks ago at Fernie. Just an unlucky fall where I had a camera in my chest pocket and it drove into my ribs. Still hurts like a bitch lol

I broke my liver

I was at Loveland riding just out of bounds in powder at the beginning of December and hit a very (very) large chunk of ice under the pow. It caused my board to fly out in front of me and I landed on the chunk of ice on my back. I finished the day of boarding, but two weeks later, I was feeling all healed up. At that time I got sick with a fever and had back pain in the same spot I fell. Two visits to the Urgent Care later, I still had a fever. I was fed up with the fever after 10 days. I ended up going to the ER and told them to figure out what the hell was wrong with me.

After a blood test and CT scan, I was admitted into the hospital with a hematoma on my liver. They did a needle (12") biopsy and decided to put me on super strong antibiotics that required a PICC Line (if not familiar, look it up on YouTube). I kept the line in until the end of January after numerous CT Scans and home IV doses of the antibiotic (with home nurses once a week).

Final verdict: I had a fever for 19 days, PICC line for 30 days and $25K worth of hospital bills (thank god for insurance). I had fallen hard enough to cause a tear or break in my liver that bled and pocketed on the outside of my liver. This then got infected, causing me to get sick.

It was one of the best (and most expensive) days of boarding ever!

So far this year no major injuries. I've sprained my MCL the last two seasons so here's hoping I stay solid the rest of the season!

There is no substitution for human competition.

Just yesterday there was a nice box set up about 3/4 the way down the run. No lip, you could pop on from the side or pop strait on. Me deciding to try and pull off something cool I tried tailpressing on and did not make it over the lip and slamming my leg on the edge of the box. I have a nice fat bruise on my leg now....
