today i was skiing on blackcomb and found a sweet spot on crystal ridge that no one had gone through yet. there was an unbelievable amount of powder and i was rippin, feeling invincible. as stupid as i was, i ended up trying to gap from a bump to a tranny, however it wasnt exactly a tranny. more like a 20 foot drop with a cat track directly below. i was fearing for my life in the air, and came down hard, hitting my head backwards. i thank god for my helmet. i was whimpering and writhing uncontrollably for a few minutes. and fuck did it hurt, my back, neck, and calves were in extreme pain. i took a shit load of tylenol and am feeling sore but not too bad now.
all i can say is look before you leap!!
