Twisting your ankle in your ski boot
On Thursday, I managed to twist my ankle when I decked out on a jump at Keystone. My friend told me it looked like my outside edge on my right ski caught when I hit the knuckle. Anyway, both skis popped off (my knees say thankyou) but I felt my ankle twisting. How the heck does this happen in a ski boot?

is it a high ankle sprain, like in the calf area, cuz ive done that before, but even thats rare
tptaly possible, I have severly sprained my ankle that made it hurt for month's, my boots were to big, but still the boot does not actualy keep your ankle from rotaing in multiple directions, everytime you cross your skis you are rotating your ankles to the inside.
And if you would like information on which boots you should buy ask these people:
because you're balemic?

easily is how it happens, usually because your boots are either too big, not done up enough, or something along those lines. Or, you twisted hard enough that you got fucked. Better your ankle than your knee, and I don't feel bad for you anyways.
bingo. ive done it plenty of times. it sucks. while too loose a boot will increase the risk, its possible to do in race-fit boots. you can still over rotate your ankle.

My boots are not too big. I see what you guys are saying about how your ankle can still turn. It's just weird.
if you had them buckled differently than you normally do, or if it was a warm day (boots expand) they could've just had enough twisting room where your ankle was. and since your edges caught when you landed and you released from your bindings it's entirely plausible that your ankle (as well as your knee) twisted as your body rotated.

i broke my ankle from twistin it in a ski boot
i dunno but i just did it on an urban rail like 20 minutes ago and up to my knee feel like shit
maybe it was your boot that got "twisted" so that made your ankle get twisted, i can't see twisting your ankle inside your boot without your boot doing anything
if that made any sense...
long story short he overshot. tried to finger a girl wearing a skirt in the movies, but overshot and got the pooper. then proceeded to wipe the poopy finger on the friend next to him.
man, what the fuck ?
what does being able to read minds have to do with your ankles moving around inside the boot ?
hey look, its a signature
if you can break your ankles in boots then you can definitely sprain or twist your ankle.

you know how Nas be NYC state of mind i'm in.
i got to keep on walking on the road to Zion, man.
we gots to keeps it burning on the road to Zion, man.
i have done it twice, once to each of my ankles. i am pretty sure its because the leg bones actually pull slightly away from the foot, stretching the hell out of the ligaments.
You may win or lose, but to be yourself is all that you can do.
