I read very often here on ns of a lot of people who got very badly hurt in the park.
i'm always terrified by the idea of injure myself in a bad way whan trying to learn a trick, even an easy one: broken bones, ligament tears and injuries in general are my biggest fear. so very often i end up asking myself the question: is it really worth it? risking maybe of be permanently injured?
probably i'm just a pus because unfortunately i live in a city far from ski resorts so when i'm lucky i go skiing 10 days a year. this means that i have very few days to learn tricks and get familiar with the park and jumps so i'm always unsure of trying them..
but i'm curious, what is your relationship with injuries and risk? what is the thing that makes you say: it's worth it, let's send it?
