Spent next 2 days in pain then a few day later I went to the Chiropractor and he twisted a few things back in place and I feel good now lol but it REally hurt at the time.
I know what you mean!

Couple years ago I had another wipeout at Blue Mountain that I thought was going to kill!

I was flying down a mild blue run having some fun, went up into the woods, and when I came back onto the trail there was a large lip cut by people riding along the edge of the trail. I was probably 10 ft in the air at the highest, and moving across the run instead of down, and I came down on my hip.

First thing I thought was "I'm going to break my hip!" but when I came down my fat ass must have taken it all! My cheek was numb and tingly for a few minutes, but 5 minutes later I got up and boarded the rest of the day no problem!

You know better question how many of you have seen someone die on skis or a snowboard? I'm somewhere up around 6 or 7 first hand.

Well I was riding 7th heaven this year when that guy died and that made us all think.

I've been at a resort probably around 5 times where someone has died. Maybe more. Seen ski patrol working on victims, or hauling them out. The guy hitting the tree was the only time I've witnessed it. That was brutal, and I wouldn't mind if I never saw that one again.

I think I'd rather just run into a tree. Dying this way, you have time to realize you're done. Ungood.
