Sticky boxes and tired legs don't mix

So i spent some time in Telluride last week, after 5 straight days of riding something much bigger than Ohio we were totally exhausted. The lifts were about to close so we went to goof around in their little park. For some reason I only get injuries from the smaller, dumber shit. Tried a simple half cab to bs 180 off the box but the nose of my board stuck really bad. Came down on my left side pretty good with my arm under me. Wind knocked out, ended up with a distal radius fracture and a bunch of other smaller fractures. Having surgery tomorrow but got the whole thing on video so thought i'd share (SFW, swearing edited out, lol). Anyone else had this?





By the way, gotta give huge props to Telluride Ski Patrol, friendliest group of people I've met in a long time total opposite of the ski patrolers we have here.

Ugh... That noise you made after landing. Sooo many memories. I wish I would have had one of these cameras when I blew my ankle. Take care of it and I hope it heals up fast for ya!

Oh man, amazing how one can get seriously hurt even on a "beginner" ride-on box.

Where in Ohio are you and where do you ride locally? I'm in Columbus and spend my weekends at Mad River Mountain.

I hope your recovery goes well.

Thanks man. I'm in the Akron area (little north of there) and mostly ride at Boston Mills/Brandywine.

Already planning a trip back to Telluride next year

Cool. I've heard good things about BMBW. I've never been up there. Is it worth an overnight trip?

Don't you mean tired legs and snowboarding don't mix ;-)

always always remember to leave yourself enough energy to get down the hill at the end, it counts as a run! maybe two if you are at my mountain! If you are tired, download. Its better than catching an edge and twisting up your knee or worse.
Boxes are generally sticky at the end of the day too...sucks. I got stuck on one this week.
Hope your surgery went well!!

PS simple 180 cab blah blah...thats complicated to me! aha

I ride: NS Pandora 149 + Salomon Absolute premium Bindings
Stepchild PMS 149/ Smokin Fawesym 149 + Nitro Eris Bindings +15 -12

K2 Contour 5.

Sorry just now seeing this. It's smaller than Mad River but it's a really cool vibe and they put quite a bit of work into the parks here. It's 2 resorts around a mile or so from each other and one ticket gets you into both. If you want park go to Brandywine, Boston Mills is more just for cruising. If you dont care about luxury, there's a motel 6 up the road that's really cheap.

Haha, yeah, I don't know if it's the way I popped off or what but the run before that I did it and came off early, so didn't get to the really sticky part. I was going to ride down to the base but (as shown in the video) I saw some people that worked there and figured I could get ski patrol there pretty quickly. Surgery went really well, even the scar is small since they did the stitches under the skin
