ya i guess he was shreddin at breckenridge and they had built this massive hip/quarter pipe combo thing and i hear that he was side slipping into it really fast and caught his edge and just started to cartwheel a bunch.
aw- boo...and word to someone above, ive been hearin a lot about broken backs too...maybe this is a sign that the progression of skiing is going a bit fast?

u can get a traverse something fracture to a vertebrea and it isnt serious. I had one this winter. Its still a broken back but only a wing breaks and it isnt affected by pressure. You're only out for like a month. But i wish mahre the best, he's a dope rider
im pretty well healed up. as stated above, it was from a high speed side slipping incodent. broke my T6 and T7. ive been out of my brace for a little while now. slowly getting back into shape...(my poles woulda punched out my eyes i bet....)
haha yeah it sounds like he's doing alright if he's feisty enough to make cracks about poles, hope you're able to get back at it soon dude. Edge catching incidents are the worst, my worst bail this year was a high speed fakie to forward revert gone horribly wrong.
either that or there are just too many dumb kids attempting stuff they can't do. (and this post does not pertain to the pros out there who got broke, i respect them fully. it's all the other little yahoos that irk me)
i wish there was a "sarcasm" font.
