Over the weekend I had a "fun" accident, documented in this post.
I was skiing along at speed, when my left ski drilled something buried under the snow hard enough to force me into this kind of a ski ballet move.
I failed at getting the ski back under me and dug the tip into the snow. It forced a really awkward release and twisting fall at about 30 mph. I got a very bad bruise at the boot cuff either at the point the ski released or possibly because I then fell on top of that foot. In any case, I came close to a boot top tib/fib, or at least a fib fracture. Thankfully Xrays were negative, but pain has kept me off that leg for most of the weekend.
The urgent care doctor told me I can ski on that leg with no worries once pain allows, but he also demonstrated he wasn't a skier, and wasn't terribly familiar with the whole boot cuff dynamic that creates a lot of these injuries. I wanted a second opinion as I am concerned that the bruised area, right at this pressure point, could be more prone to fracture for some time. While this injury sucks, I am really trying to keep it from being a season ender.
Should I be concerned about that leg being at more risk for fracture?
