Sounds like you too were riding a bit outside of your ability to handle the given terrain and obstacles at that moment. Usually the price isn't so steep. Welcome to the Slam Section...

I was not riding outside of my ability I was on a green trail . I never hit a jump before nor had any intention to. I was surprised. Witth the recent snowfall a mound had formed. I have riden that trail over twenty times before the incident with no issues even in icy conditons this yr

Not saying you can't ride, just saying for that particular situation. Regardless it sucks.

Funny, it seems like a lot of people get jacked on beginner runs. A good reason to stay away from them imo...

A friend had a similar crash last year on the main green trail. Hes an experienced rider, but add a backpack and a quick glance back to make sure everyone was following and in a second he sideways scorpioned and tore some internal lining. I can't remember what it was but I believe it had something to do with the spleen. The unexpected tend to get people quite a bit. Sorry about your injury, hope you make a speedy recovery.

Mmm, cut killclimbz some slack.... he rides BC all the time and sometimes forgets that there isn't always a pillowy mound of soft snow waiting to catch you when you make a mistake .

He probably also can't remember the last time he was on a run that wasn't 50+ yards wide :-)
