I took lots of chances and got pretty lucky this season...

Then, a few weeks ago I asked my friends below if it was clear, went over the little cliff drops and passed my friends, right over the LARGER cliff beside them!

Fell about 15 feet onto flats, crumpled into a ball and got an insta headache. Luckily nothing worse than a sore head/neck and a bruised ego!

Also wiped out good this past Sunday. Was our closing day and I was in full uniform, bombing under the lift on semi-tired legs. Caught an edge and down I went! Another patroller a few chairs down saw it all and was laughing her head off...

I really didn't have any memorable falls this season. Maybe I was just being a pussy? My worst was probably bumping off a tree and falling backwards down a 10ft drop and landing on my upper back/shoulders but that was a pow day, so the only part that actually hurt was bumping into the tree. If it wasn't a pow day it would have been a different story, but I probably wouldn't have been in the trees if that were the case.

Luckily, my only bigger falls were in powder so it was all laughs

The only pain was trying to get unstuck in the deep snow. Coming from the East, this was a brand new experience for me

Tried to ollie onto a flat-down box, clipped the front of my board on the side of the box, then tumbled and struck my ribs onto the corner of the box.

The worst of saw was on a really icy day, this guy with no helmet (and no hat) tries to do a rodeo off a really small kicker and doesn't even get halfway round. Completely domes his head off the icy landing. He gets back up straight away and heads down-slope, he then sits down holding his head in agony. I asked if he was alright and he said he was fine. I thought he was pretty lucky.

it hadnt snowed for a while so me and a few friends were just ripping groomers switch and i was trying some ryan knapton type shit. attempted a cab 5 over a mellow roller, rotated 450 and caught toe edge, hit the ground head/shoulder first HARD! and bounced about 10 ft then slid another 20ft. we were going pretty fast. went straight to the base after that and just sat down for about an hour before going home

Hardest fall: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/sla...-jump-vid.html

Worst stack i saw was ironically on the same jump about 15 minutes earlier. A guy hit the jump and at first i thought "sick! he's doing a backflip!" but the rotation stopped in the inverted position. It wasnt a backflip attempt, it was an attempt at a straight jump that went bad. I had done the same thing the first time i hit a decent kicker a couple of years ago - but that was onto an airbag. This guy landed inverted off a 15m? kicker onto spring slush. Other spectators threw up the "X" sign to stop others coming, and i saw him getting helped/carried off a few minutes later.

Stupid me thought "what a noob" and tried the same jump on my next lap through the park (vid above). In hindsight, it was pretty stupid.
