I'm butt-hurt

No, literally...

Last week I lost it on some ice, slammed down hard on my back, then slid down into a big frozen ice chunk. What was the first thing to nail the ice chunk? My tailbone!

The drive down from the resort was murder. I went straight to the urgent care and got a prescription for some pain meds. The worst thing is not being able to sit back in a comfortable position. The weirdest thing is now I have a soft dimple where my tailbone used to be. It's all squishy "back there."

Lol, reminds me of a time when I was about 16, hit a quarter pipe with a rut where everyone else had been hitting it. It kicked my legs up above me and I came down on top of the pipe right on my ass!!! I was probably 4-5 feet in the air when this happened and it took me out for the rest of the trip. I could hardley walk! So I feel your pain... Enjoy those meds! lol

That's why I wear them always...even in pow days. Now I feel weird without actually. they make sitting in the snow or on the chairlift much more comfy

I've got upper body armour and feel the same way about it. Feel naked without it now, the first few runs when I wore it I felt all constrained... Should try the "ass pants" next...

Do these actually help a lot? I was out today and took a pretty nasty fall off of a rail without any sort of padding and and hit straight up ice. It pretty much ended my day. I will have to look into getting a pair of these.

Dude...I experienced what ToeCutter described. Out of a heel side carve on the downhill icy side of a mogul..lost my edge and...WHACK! I remember spending good 5 minutes on the side of the run just breathing deep...there was a rod of pain from my ass up to my spine...and being so in pain the rest of day, the drive back..ouch. Never again.


Wearing those you just bounce off (if that happens) and keep riding flipping a finger to the ice mogul. Sure..you'll have to pee more often maybe since they compress a bit...the rigid plastic shield over your Tailbone can be removed too. It sits there in a pocket...nice hard shield of plastic.
Not that we get tons of ice in Tahoe...but they just make me feel more confident, along wit the Super Pipe Pro (protective gloves) other great item.
Get that stuff before you get hurt...or right after...like me
