More Breck Powder

I'm under the 6 chair at Breck, again. Steep, untracked, 10+ inches on 8 inches, on 6 inches.I drop into a steep line popping in and out of moguls and the trees switch and spot a launch..I LOAD up for a backside 7 ollie with about 10 ft drop into a slot between two trees with solid tree well cushion (ok it didnt look perfect)spot the lip..pop, start the roate... WHAM... felt like a stump toe side about 3/4 back and over I go front flip/cork branch powder spinning... ooooo theres the landing and bBam! toeside straight down super deep all forward motions instantly stops but my SPINE is still rotating..........I think its mostly ripped cartilage and connective tissue and theres no bruising and it hasnt gotten worse and I'm optimistic. maybe two to three days off the mountian. The helmet won't help with a deeply buried stump.

Bitten by a snow snake. Though rare this time of year, that damn critter is still a danger...
