So now she has a 1/2 cast = wrist guard = back on the hill as soon as pain is tolerated...maybe 2-3 weeks. I discourage the use of wrist guards...they tend to move the injury up the arm and to shoulders. The best is to learn to fall correctly.

fell on my wrist yesterday at hunter while trying to bomb down the iciest mountain in the area. slightly fractured a small wrist bone. i know how fall but it just happened real fast. doctor said it should be a lot better in 2 weeks. i didn't think anything was wrong at first. i even did 5 more runs afterwards. it just started getting worse on the 3 hour drive home and i couldn't sleep with it so i went to the er and had X-rays done. actually thinking about going snowboarding again this weekend or next lol

I am a firm believer in not wearing wrist guards as they apply the force of the fall directly in one spot and instead of it being a simple sprain it usually ends up with a clean break.

Yeah the only safety equipment I beleive in is a helmet. Head injuries are no joke wrist legs everything else sucks but will heal over time. I don't like weighing myself down. I very rarely fall but the reality is I'm usually not the only one on the mt all it takes is one jackass to plow you and its game over. So i forced her to wear a helmet and glad I did the amount she falls it really has come in the clutch. But outside of the helmet I think the less you have to put on the the better I don't want to be the kid from christmas story.
