That's a terrible thing to have happen on a ski vacation. Thirty years ago, I took my first trip to New England. We went to Mad River Glen. There's boiler plate and there's boiler plate. First day second run, my skis were chattering so hard my fabulous Besser Plate bindings pre released and I fell and started to slide head first wearing my zero friction Cirre(spelling) nylon coat. I couldn't get my feet in front of me and I slid off the hill head first over the bank and down through some small trees. My head missed everything . When I came to a stop, I had pulled my foot completely out of a very snuggly buckled Munari Comp ski boot. My calf hurt like hell, and I gingerly touched my leg conviced I would discover a bone peircing my skin.
No break. Couldn't ski the rest of the trip. Came home to NW Pa. was admitted to the hospital with a blood clot in my calf. Knock on wood, that was the only injury I have had in 40 years of skiing.
Proof that I have been a pretty cautious skier .
Coach , I will be in Vail in April when they initiate the steep discounts. I'll be staying at the cheapest hotel , and eating a packed sandwich for lunch.
I look forward to that week every year hope to catch up to you there next spring and see those Dynastar skiis on your feet you've been jonesing about.It's a great way to extend our way to short ski season here in Pa. The last 4-5 years that week has provided fresh tracks in the AM. I never saw the lower mountain in as bad a shape as it was this past April however. Still plenty of great skiing on top and in the back , but I love to ski Riva Ridge every afternoon till I'm exhausted and this year getting over to the Vista Bahn became creative.
I think everybody here at Epic Ski has had enough summer. Its time to ski.
