After Inter-Mt state comp. in the midwest, I was a senior in highschool. Ended up 3rd overall for the GS and Slalom, i was in high spirits. This is at Afton Alps if any one knows that place, no park whatsoever so my friends and i were getting ansy looking for jibs or jumps (about 4 years ago). Was still in my GS suit (with a jacket and pants on of course) and we found a huge knoll. I tucked it up to the knoll for a 3, started the spin and immedietley got off axis. flew through the air sideways and landed with my arm pointing striaght over my head, dislocated and destroyed my shoulder instantly. THe injury didnt hurt at all because all the nerves were detroyed but i layed on the hill for an hr, then it took 45 minutes to get to the imergency room, then i waited there for anoterh 2 hrs getting morphine. by the time they reset my shoulder it had been almost 4 hrs. Needless to say, the bones and muscles were completely trashed so i had reconstructive surgery.
Point of note--Afton ski patrol licks my ass, they kept trying to set it without realizing the bones in my shoulder had shattered so everytime they tugged on it to set it I would black out because of the pain and the feeling of dry bones and muscles grinding away at eatother. And they refused to listen to me. fuckers, i hate you all
