B.QuincySo yesterday while just boming down a run at my home mountain I had a little too much speed coming over a roller went for a little safety grab when I caught my tips and landed on mychest sliding for about 40-50 feet. Ski patrol took me down and I went in the ambulance to a local small ER and they thought I was good to go with a broken thumb and badly bruised ribs but upon feeling nauseous they took me in for a cat scan to find I had sliced open my liver and a number of other things internally. I was airlifted to a tramua unit and got there to have them do the whole thing but avoided surgery and now am recovering well in the hospital. Obviously I won't be able to ski this season but my question is how do I go about getting back on snow next season especially after a serious injury like this?
Wow super scary!! Glad your okay! Take everything slow when you get back...from riding to hitting park. skiing is a high risk sport so make sure you love it enough and have good enough medical insurance to deal with bad falls and injuries! take a little break, go on hikes, hang with girls, anything to take your mind off the fact you cant ski. Try to stay positive and you will be skiing in no time!
