Maybe more people will take lessons and accident like this can be avoided.
Yeah. Just be safe

On a ski trip to Elk Mountain this year, a friend of mine was skiing. He bombed a hill by accident and a roller just happened to be at the bottom. He ramped it because he was going so fast, in the air he tilted his skis down and they caught the ground and popped off, and his body was sent flying into a tree. In the end he was ok but it was hilarious the entire time.

Watched my buddy hit kicker going well over 50 MPH, I don't know what he was thinking but it ended his season and put him in some serious pain. It was quite the scene..

He just flew in the terrain park and hit the 2nd jump at mach speed, I seen him fly way past the landing and heard his body slam against the ground. Broke his femur, ankle, and had problems with his back along with a concussion. To this day I am confused. He's a very avid skier and been going 40+ times a year since he was a small child. He's in his late 30's.

He'll be back at it this year, he doesn't remember the incident at all, just waking up at the hospital. I wonder if he had petty-mull seizure or something, he doesn't normally ski out of control, or hit jumps.

First season snowboarding around march, i was starting to get confident hitting some average sized tabletops and one time i got a little too confident and wasnt really paying attention, i hit it going too fast. I ended up going backwards through the air, cleared the landing and broke my wrist.

Second season (last season) i had become better and hitting bigger jumps. I went for this 30 footer and caught my heel edge going up the lip. I ended up doing the same thing, flying through the air. backwards. and i landed on my same arm. Except this time i broke my humerus right below my shoulder.

I had to have a doctor put a rod and two screws in. :/
He said if i hit my tea with this type of impact, i would've died so i bought a sandbox. haha
It still give me pain today, 7 months later but I'm doin physical therapy next month and I'll be at Mt High come winter!

Worst crash ive seen so far was actually first day of the season last year, and this guy went for a single cork off the first jump @ mountain creek. Well, he under-rotated, and he landed on his arm/shoulder. I was about 10 feet from him, and I swear I heard a snap, like breaking a chicken bone in half.

Stayed with the kid until ski patrol brought him down. His season was over before the end of the first run.

When I first changed from skis to a snowboard, I took a few lessons. The instructor was teaching me to turn when I hit a large patch of ice on my heel edge. The ice looked like glass, so much so that I could clearly see grass through six inches of it. My board went out from underneath me real quick and I fell backwards hard, whipping the back of my head into the solid ice.

According to the people around me it made a horrible sound, like dropping a bowling ball on concrete. They though I'd cracked my skull open and the instructor was freaking out because it sounded so bad. I was only wearing a beanie at the time but there was no blood or anything.

I think I knocked myself out for a few seconds and I was pretty dazed for a few minutes. I had headaches for the next 24 hours, so I probably ended up with a mild concussion.

So, what did that lesson teach me? Well, I've worn a helmet ever since.
