Pollard Continues To Push
Incase you hear something about Eric Pollard falling into a Crevasse its half true, but not really. Eric Pollard hiked out into a big wide open canyon in the backcountry a few days ago to build a jump on the edge of a cliff and hit it with some snowboarder friends. On his 4th hit, he landed on his feet but then fell on his side and SLID 80 feet or so at which point he stopped laid on his back and waited to be sledded out. X rays showed two fractured vertebrae in his back = he can walk around fine but can't ski for 8 weeks, doctors said there is no long term damage.
So I guess this is sorta good news, no permanent damager and he will be back in 2 months.
