Straight off Freeskier. Its the truth.
Tanner Hall may be out for season
By Patrick Crawford, yesterday
As gnarly as it is, everybody probably expected Tanner to be able to stomp cab 9s over Chad’s gap last week. What caught everyone by surprise was that on Saturday Tanner sustained the first injury of his career, and may be out for the season.
The final diagnosis is still preliminary, but according to Armada’s Hans Smith, Tanner has a hairline fracture in his left ankle and more substantial break on his right that will require surgery. Tanner was seeing an orthopedic surgeon today to figure out exactly what he needs to do to get back on snow. Hans told us they’re expecting an 8-10-week recovery time.
At the moment, information is still rough. As more details come in, we’ll pass ‘em along. And get well soon T!
