Like muscle tightness? Or more like your joint is hurting?

I get some pain in a similar area because of a low potassium level. Almost feels like my legs are locking if I put them in a certain position.

Stick your leg out, turn it inwards, what does that feel like?

Sounds like a popliteus strain or tendinitis of it, but kind of need a physical and to go in more depth with it.
Could be gastroc strain or hamstring as well but i'd have to see it to be sure.

When I make my leg straight and turn it inward it just feels tight up through the inside of my leg.

I rode today and new boots and angling my back foot more made a big difference , but later on my knee starting feeling "off" again.. A little wobbly kind of

popliteus - YouTube

Do these when it's not really aggrivating. I woudlnt let something like this go on for a long period, it can get pretty annoying to treat after 10-20 years like os many people do.
And of course if it gets worse goto Emergency, urgent or another doc.

This whole thread is going to be a huge waste of your time. If anything we're just going to give you tons of random possible causes and you'll end up googling them and wasting even more time.

I don't get the 'I'm too busy to see a doctor' thing. If you have time to go snowboarding and time to post on forums, you have time to stop by a doctor or at least a physio for 30 min to check it out.

I just did more than any GP in Vancouver would do, and certainly most PTs.

Than you've been to some crappy physios and GPs.

Let's not get ridiculous and start comparing web diagnosis of vague knee symptoms to what a good GP or physiotherapist can do for you.

Good PTs and GPs are few and far between man. If you ever find one, don't ever lose them.

That's true. That said, I've found they're a lot easier to find in ski towns due to the nature of the work and experience required.

It's pretty common to walk into a physio in Whistler or in other ski towns like Wanaka NZ and end up being treated by the same physio that works with one of the national ski/snowboard olympic teams.

I'm 26, I weigh 165, and it doesn't tend to hurt at specific times really.. It doesn't keep me up at night or anything.
The pain would be mostly in he back of the knee , on the outer half of my knee, and occasionally a little dull pain above my kneecap in front
I've been dealing with the same thing for the past couple of seasons. Long story short I ended up with more knee problems and making routine visits to PT. Pretty much what I learned is it's over use of the tendons and ligaments. Pretty much they swell, strain, and seize up.

The treatment is rest, healing, then re-strengthening. Icing after activity helps with the short term healing and will get you through the rest of the season. But I've been warned that if I don't rest it and let it heal the elasticity will be replaced by a hard, stiff scar tissue.

Welcome to getting old through snowboarding.
