Not another thread about technical terrain, snow conditions, or comparisons to...
Lets get the bad out of the way. On April 6, the morning of our first full day on the hill, my 14 year old son broke his arm. Not garden variety. Snapped his humorous bone, down for the count. Three days later, we were out with a plate and ten screws. As unfortunate as the event was, I am not sure we could have encountered better people.
Right after the event, Ski Patrol met me at the top of the lift so I could take them to him. Not one person but four professionals. They had a friendly veneer over a core of all business.
After assessing my sons health, the ambulance guys wanted to know, "if he had a good story." It was just what he needed.
The people at the Yampa Valley Medical Center were every bit as kind. All the way from the ER doctor to the fantastic nurses. I wish I were at liberty to name names.
I can understand the "that is what they are supposed to do.." or "they do it all the time.." opinions. However, we all know that repetition can lead to complacency and going through the motions. That was not the case with our experience. These people truly care.
So, while I certainly hope it doesn't happen to you, rest assured that if it does, you are in good hands.
Thanks again to all that helped our family.
