I'm super bored and wanted to share, hope everyone is having a great ski season so far!!
I was sending a lil' 20 foot cliff up near Galena Summit and impacted
into a rock on the landing. Took the main hit on my elbow about halfway
through December. Ended up with a fractured/dislocated arm, and this is
the aftermath X-Ray. Got surgery that night, one doctor pulled it back
into place but it was being a bit pesky and wouldn't stay in, so ER
Surgeon took care of it right away... wasn't that fun at all.
It now looks like this. Two pins and a figure 8 wire holding my elbow together! Woo!
Got another 3-5 weeks till I'm back enjoying the BC, I'm going a little
stir crazy posted up indoors as I'm usually trying to get after it
almost everyday. Guess there's always a price to pay. Extremely grateful
for my friend who has his WFR, he stabilized my arm with his first aid
kit and my buddies got me out to the car super quick. I wasn't wearing a
helmet like a dumbass and hit my head really hard on a rock as well but
was very lucky that I didn't loose consciousness or suffer from any
brain/head injuries. Bummed out, but it could've been way worse I'm glad
I'm alive, can walk, and I'll be back on the skiing slay soon!
Also wanted to share a video with a few shots I had gotten before my
injury... all filmed this year in the Idaho BC from late November to
early December 12/13. Check it out, hope you enjoy, and wishing everyone
a safe and fun season out there! Cheers! See y'all soon in those pretty
Also on NS player... if you care to rate it up I'd be super stoked!
