Default Worst season opener D:

So, when hitting some features in the terrain park I started to ride away to the lift so that I could ride it again. However my plans were quickly changed when a skier cut me off and I carved out of his way but slipped on ice. When I slipped I spun around backwards and got thrown over a three foot drop onto my back. I managed to double compound fracture my left forearm in both my radius and ulna, mess up one of my ribs, and cause swelling and bruising in my stomach. I spent about six hours in the ER last night and am expecting surgery on my arm on Monday. They were able to reduce it but since it is such a risky break it needs plates and pins. I think its safe to say "season over".

wait so by double compound fracture you mean both your radius & ulna were popping out of your skin?

No, I mean both bones cracked twice. I was lucky enough not to have protrusion. However, it was angulated 90 degrees on the slope and I bent it back and when patrol got there they were like "Are you sure you broke it?". So, I let go of it and let it fall to about 70 degrees. The look on their faces was priceless. I was like "Yeah it might just be a flesh wound and everyone started laughing

Yesterday they had $10 lift tickets for a benefit and everyone and their grandmother was out there trying to kill me.

Glad I didn't share a similar fate, I must have got cut off and nearly run into like 10 times.

Get sum muscle on those bones! It will help reduce injuries, other then that hope for a quick recovery

Brutal dude. I know what it feels like to break an arm snowboarding. I did it coming off the backside of a 360 last season. I landed wrong, came down on my left arm and snap! I had to have pins and plates put in and now have two sick ass scars. It's still a little tender, and I sure do notice it every time I go to stop myself from falling. Here's to a quick recovery and sorry to hear about your season.
