No, I just don't like people wasting patrols time, if you're good enough to ride down, your good enough to get it seen yourself. (excluding head injuries)

Guys a fucking baby, sounds like he should quit snowboarding, it's too dangerous.

Because laying down and waiting for possibly hours in freezing temps is better than limping your way down until you find someone?

When I broke my leg 4 weeks ago I limped down about 1/4 mile until my son saw me from the lift in the distance and came to see what was up. He got patrol for me and I got the toboggan ride.... No one else stopped in the 45 minutes I was crutching down the trail in obvious trouble. I thought it was a sprain with my adrenaline pumping, walked to my truck, drove to my condo, walked down 2 flights and up another of stairs..... When I took my boot off I felt my bone rubbing so I drove to a ortho surgeon I knows office and got seen..... Had surgery that day to correct my torn ligaments and broken fibula.

Did I waste patrols time? Maybe I should have laid down in 15 degree weather hoping someone MIGHT stop?

damn this thread is lulzy material

i think that if you can ride down on your own, you should do it. When i injured myself i was fucking mad and embarrased that i coulnt ride down on my own and had to call for help.

aaaand there's the other one

Cheo's young and willing to put himself out there on this forum, and I get a kick out of his "stories". Taking cheap shots at him would be too easy, and really un-clever to be honest.

Get a gory report from the doc and let us know! Hope the knee gets better soon doode.

Sure, I doubt you sat at home and had the time to write an essay on a forum about it did you?

My point is that calling patrol and then not getting it looked at is wasting patrols time. Screaming at your girlfriend to call patrol? Carry a cellphone

Bullshit, patrol will come get you wherever you are, if you can't describe where you are you shouldn't be riding there.
