Damn Sabatoa, sorry to hear. A lot of us have been there. Heal up and get strong, next season will be here before you know it. And with the money you're saving on day passes you can get something shiny and new to ride next season.

He had a season pass unfortunately, but he already got his money back from riding a ton.

He'll be spending money with me at our favorite beer bar instead.

haha, yep.

I keep wavering back and forth between being devastated on missing out on the CO trip with David_Z and Jay29 and thankful that I don't have to come up with another thousand bucks.

This is my thinking though. Dave says I can get Southwest to credit my airline ticket to another flight, so next season we plan something epic again for March and maybe I can use the credit then. Only this time I won't be a dumbass and break something before the trip.

I broke my L1 vertebra boarding back in March 2012, and I was back riding again in December. What your looking for is a stable fracture with no nerve damage and only a small amount of kyphosis. When you get out of your brace, make sure to do your PT to regain your flexibility and strength. It's been less than a year and other than having the stamina and strength of a first timer again, i could say I'm 100%.

Just thought I'd share a similar story with a happy ending. Somehow I fathered a child in that brace lol. You never know what tomorrow will bring. Keep your head up!

Sorry to read about this, dude.

I've had the 'ride of shame' before for a shoulder dislocation (I dislocated it, then rode a few mins until I found some ski patrol, then they told me to get a ride down on the stretcher, rather than ride down myself to mitigate the risk of making it worse)

It won't be your last season ever, so focus on getting better, and be back to kill it next year

BTW: I'm pretty much done in the park, too... maybe some jumps and small kickers, but otherwise I stay in the trees

The thing that really bothered me was that I was afraid of ruining everyone else's day and I kept telling them to go ride off without me. haha
Wow that sucks... Hope you have a speedy recovery. I'm glad it wasn't any worse.

But holy crap man, you broke your back and still crawled to the edge of the trail? With your board strapped on? I really have to grow some balls...

He tried to stand up several times, too. It was pretty apparent that he was in a lot of pain, but none of us thought he broke anything except maybe a tailbone.

Chomps actually took my board off while I was still on my hands and knees under the jump. It was after that I crawled off to the side. Broke ass back and all haha
