Second day out = blown out knee

out to Sugarloaf today with my friends. Was doing pretty good in a natural snow trail until I fell transitioning for heel side to toe side. Fell on my back and went to roll over when the tip of my snowboard sank into hard powder about 5 inches deep. Instead of just popping out it stuck while the rest of my body followed the momentum and tried to continue the cart wheel. The result: Dislocated patella and torn ACL. The ski patrol sleds are far from the funnest thing I have riden. My seasons done

Unlucky mate :-( did a similar thing a couple of years back an i can tell you it aint fun sitting on the sidelines watching your mates have all the fun in the snow. Chin up and spend your time watching all the latest videos so come next season you can teach your friends a thing or two!

I'm glad I didn't buy a season pass like everyone said I should. I'm mostly pissed that a) It's the beginning of the season and b) This isn't the first time I've blown out my knee, but it looks like its the worst.

yeah but if its a meniscus it could be just 3 or 4 weeks til riding. My doc thought i tore mine before the MRI and turns out it was just an mcl sprain. I was riding 2 weeks later. He said if it were meniscus it would be like a 4 week recovery

Really sorry to hear about your knee Marshmellow, just like SnowWolf said, take it slow, do all the rehab, and try to think positive, least you got your turns this year. When you get back on the board you'll be turning without even thinking about it how to do it pretty darn soon!

Sorry to hear man. I tweaked my knee the first day out but not as bad as you. Just a partial tear of the meniscus. I hope your recovery goes well.

Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.
