    What injuries have you got from riding?   

     Considering what you guys and Sodder have done I feel lucky getting off with just one broken wrist and an bruise the size and shape of South America on my shin (most likely also a small fracture to said shin bone).

    Wish I could say that my injuries haven't slowed me down but they have. It would be different if I had an office job; no pressing need for mobility there.

    2 concussions
    Broken shoulder
    Cartilage damage in knee for which the operation has kept me out 18 months now.

    Not too bad overall for about 15 years on snow.

    No just landed wrong off a drop and sat down...right onto a tree stump with a small tough pointy part. Fuck it hurt so much for weeks/months after.

    What injuries have you got from riding?   

    Here it goes...In order over the last 23 years.

    1. broken right ankle
    2. broken left thumb
    3. broken right thumb
    4. chip tail bone w/ concussion
    5. AC separation w/ compound fractured collar bone
    6. pressure brake of two bottom front teeth w/ concussion
    7. fracture of left orbital (eye socket)
    8. Compressed disk in back
    9. slight tear of the lateral medial meniscus (left knee)
    10. Left knee Patella dislocation with severe bone bruise (last year)

    but the worst injury I've seen was a guy I know slam his face into his knee off a 20 foot cliff. They were picking pieces of his teeth out of his knee in the hospital.

    All I've really had is a concussion, and a fucked up back from landing on my ass really hard from really high up.

    It was pretty warm the one day i was riding a few day's ago so we decided to do a few runs in just tee shirts. hit this kicker these kids built up next to a tree and one of the branches got me pretty good. Looked down and there was blood staining my shirt. Gashed my arm up pretty good definitely gonna have a big ass scar there for awhile.

     Early season this year I cracked my helmet on a rock poking through the snow. Next 5 days of the trip it was hard to breath deep because of the whip-lash

     got submarined on a stump doing some tree stuff at Smuggs, seriously thought I broke my leg. Thing swelled up like a mofo when I got back to the condo and took my boot off. This is 2 days later when the bruising set in. Only missed 1 day of riding.

     I suffer from self-inflicted EBA (extremely bruised ass) almost every time I get out. I'm always trying to jump off stupid shit and then I bust up my ass. But the only way to get better is to fail first. Fortunately, I haven't suffered any real injuries on the mountain yet.

    Side note: I saw three people go out on stretchers yesterday at Bromley. That's the most I've ever seen in one day.
