Two seasons ago I was coasting, not speeding, just coasting down a blue groomer. I veer off a little bit to hit like a 15ft kicker, and some fucking skier intentionally zooms right infront of me. I didn't fall because of her, but I hit the jump off balance and was so pissed that I didn't spot my landing. I ended landing nose first, the board got stuck in the snow, and as a result of the impact nose first--my ankle completely blew out of its socket. I did not know this at the time.
I dug myself out and shot down the mountain looking for her (yes, it was a girl) and when I saw her I threw my snowboard at her. At this point I had a limp and missed, but I really wished I hadn't. I cursed, she ran back up the lift, and my girlfriend at the time was telling me to calm down. We go back up the lift and halfway through a run I couldnt ride anymore.
Went to the ER the next day, the left ankle (the ball, top half) completely gaped out in the x-ray. It wasn't a dislocate as it was still socketed in there, but man that thing gaped. Season was over for me after that. Ankle hasn't been the same, not to mention I had to cut my boot off the swelling got so big.
Fuck that shit, the snowboard makes a great weapon. Anyone does this to me again I'm lugging it at someones head.
Well we only have one side of the story, maybe she was just a dumbass not paying attention. 99.999% of people are not out to hurt others they just act like dopes. Same as driving a car. People who get hit cycling or walking are hit by people that do not realise they are a weapon.
