buckle fractured my arm yesterday at stratton- last run, double black diamond. my boa boots were unlocked and i didnt know. next thing i knew, BAM- caught my edge!
i tried to snowplow down the mountain in pain, but i ended up going the wrong way and the next thing i knew i was on the side of the road, 5 miles from the base lodge. a shuttle was passing by and gave me a ride back.
my first cast and best of all the doc said i can still board with it!
fractured tailbone this year 50-50'ing a what i thought was simple rail.
kept riding, and on the next run i got lazy, caught an edge and fell on the same freaking part of my ass. called it quits for the day after that.
Only 1 so far. Trying a backside boardslide I caught my nose under the ledge and came down with my thigh directly on the edge of the ledge. Massive charlehorse. Worst part was that it was a 5ft long 1ft high ride on ledge. Couldn't walk right the next day and I don't bruise so it didn't look cool.
SO far so good on the injury chart. Just the normal minor bumps and bruises. I pray that it stays that way for the rest of the season. Especially since I just bought some new boots, and my new board should be here any time now.
