End of season
Well my season ended today. It was confirmed that I broke my collar bone overshooting a 35ft. jump to flat... I'm pretty bummed. I learned switch backies and was progressin' like mad. So I'm wondering if anyone else has had any season ending injuries? Sorry kinda pointless thread but I'm pissed.
On a brighter note I trolled the fuck outa some gaper on FB.
luckily haven't had and season enders. (knock on wood or whatever) sorry for your loss though.
"is that one of them new snowerboarders?"

Season ender with a broken collar bone? I need to see the x-rays on this one.
sucks man, my season took a pretty big blow today aswell. Have a possible fractured ankle. Need more x-rays in a week to see if it is fractured or not. I was in the same boat as you too by the sounds of it, really felt like I was progressing every day. Just gonna rest and hit the physio hard. Had some pretty bad injuries in the past during the winter and the hardest part is just trying to stay positive while everyone else is out skiing. So keep you're head up man, and try to do what the doctors tell you.
I live in mn so my season ends in mid march.
pics or it didnt happen. just playin.
but i do kinda wanna see the x ray
I occasionally enjoy getting shit on by the passing seagull.
Damn mine pretty much ended monday. I skied at my local hill and actually progressed a bunch. No jumps though. :( EVERYTINGS MEEEELLLTINGGGG
i got lucky last season. i had a grade 3 separated shoulder adn tore all of the ligaments connecting my collar bone and shoulder. it was supposed to be 6 to 8 weeks but i was back skiing in 4 for the last couple weeks of the season.

then again, they are kinda slutty, but i dont look at it that way, more like an opportunity that you need to put forth minimal effort to gain the full advantage of
that sucks. good luck with the recovery

SKI THE EAST
For me, skiing is about finding that perfect moment when you can't think of anything else that you would rather be doing or anyone else that you would rather be doing it with.
torn meniscus in january but its still ski-able with ib profin
All times are Eastern (-4)
