Wow, somebody started their day with some Hater-ade. Your quote tells me you must ride a hill that has about 500 vertical feet and 10 acres of space. I take runs inbounds all the time, that I know for a fact, would be all but impossible to describe my location to a patroller. You ride in 3,000+ acres where every tree looks like the last one, and tell me you can always describe your location.

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
Actually I walked around for 2.5 weeks with it ruptured and filling full of nastiness. I even made posts on various snowboard sites, played games, went to the bar, went to work, and finally when it finally ruptured I still rode to the base to get help while only being able to see out of one eye and having no motion on the right side of my body. Doc said the best thing I did was ride to get help. But by your standards I should have been fine even though I was bleeding to death internally.

Hell 7 weeks ago I rode the shame train out of the park for a dislocated elbow. Sure I could have gotten up and rode down but I wasn't sure if it was a dislocation or I had gotten a tri-compound fracture of my radius and destroyed my humerus. Better safe than sorry.

Yeah that only works at small little places. I go out a access gate I'm fucked and have to drag my ass back in bounds. You really need to think before you respond dumbass. There are some of us on here that have been around longer than you and know more than you especially about this.

Patrol's there working for you. Their "time" is spent answering any number of calls, throwing bombs, snow stability, roping off things, carting dumbasses off the mountain, informing the public, etc. etc. By buying a ticket, season pass, etc. you are paying for them to be there and work for you. But hey I know your time is precious and so is there's so they should only deal with serious things.

Look at the previous threads this kid has made. He is just looking for attention.

You ruptured your spleen twice? Good story, your my fucking hero. Back to my original point, if your hurt, go get it checked out, especially if you feel you are hurt enough to call patrol.

A tri-compound fracture? Im pretty sure you would know right away if the bone is poking out of your skin or not.

As for your other comments, you have no idea who I am or how much experience I have. If you are talking about internet experience, clearly you are the fucking expert. You keep hucking way past your ability and talking shit daily on people if it makes you happy. I will do it now and then for entertainment (talking shit), but that's the beauty of the internet right?

One kid fucks his knee up; so this turns into a bunch of e-thugs behind keyboards? Grow the fuck up. You're just making this message board look like a bunch of adolescent punks who can ride and talk shit.

In the terrain we have in the Northwest, you can be 50 feet from a groomed run stuck in a tree well and you might as well be on the fucking moon as NWboarder28 and I can tell you from firsthand experience at White Pass in dense trees.

Ride in Heather Canyon at Mt. Hood Meadows and get fucked up and unable to communicate, you could be there for days. The terrain is huge and complex and even when sweeping the canyon, patrollers can not see more than 20 feet into the trees. Not everyone who rides inbounds carry's a GPS and a satellite telephone.

This sort of thing has happened frequently out here. Just last year a skier went into a tree well at Crystal and they did not find his body until spring and he was within 50 yards of a main trail. Cell phones and radios do not always work out here and actually in most cases do not. Self rescue and riding with a partner is your only chance out here to at least get yourself to a location that patrol can locate.


This idea that it is somehow "wasting Patrol`s" time is absurd. These guys are paid to do this job and 99% of them do it because they enjoy the work. Actually, in most cases where patrol hauls someone to the clinic in a toboggan, an examination reveals that the injury is much more minor than feared and the person is sent home with the advice of "take it easy for the next few days" So was that call a waste of time too? Unless you are a medical doctor with the equipment in the field, you nor a patroller can make a 100% accurate diagnosis of what is wrong so this is never a waste of time and I find your attitude preposterous.

It is no different than the volunteer mountain rescue such as the Craig Rats here in the Northwest who perform mountain rescue, they love their work. It is never a waste of time to notify patrol of an injury. In fact at Meadows where I work, if a student is injured in a class, even if minor but they want to go get checked out at the clinic, we are NOT allowed to walk them there or send them on their own; patrol must be called and the individual must be assessed by patrol because of the potential for further injury by moving them and the mountain being liable. Patrol is never going to feel you wasted their time and if they do, you ride at a very shitty resort.

Engage your brain before posting and stop making these broad proclamations based on a myopic view of reality. In addition, stop needlessly flaming the kid even if his stories seem very far fetched. It isn't hurting anyone and if it pisses you off, exercise some self control and simply don`t read his posts. If you don`t have anything constructive to say then don`t post.
Get off your high horse, Jesus. I am pretty sure I have read a couple of posts from you over the last month or so that have been far from constructive.

You call patrol to kids hurt in lessons no matter what because the insurance company puts that procedure in place, probably due to all of the instructors that are too moronic to make that call themselves - if there is ever any doubt, you call patrol. I'm sure there are plenty of times when you could have used your common sense and figured out the best form of action.

Whenever I am riding, I have a general idea of where I am, and I never ride trees alone. Patrol will always TRY and help, no matter where you are.
