base damage after crash

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
To begin my story, I was in a lesson with another student doing a demo of how you are supposed to ski. All was well until one turn never happened. I went flying off the trail at approximately 30-35mph and got smacked around by a few branches before crashing into a pile of large rocks. Unfortunately I fractured my knee cap and will miss a month of the season.
I am hoping to catch the last few weeks of the season in march once I can remove the brace on my knee.

My skis now have fairly deep scratches and a large gouge taken out from right under foot. I think it may have gone through the black base as it is a few mm deep and there appears to be wood showing through. How should I fix this? I will probably just send it to the shop and get a stone grind and tell them to fix it, but just want to make sure.

Sorry about your luck jgig. It sounds like the ski is still sound. A shop will do a base section repair. Prolly ski like new when you get back on them in March.

A core shot and a busted knee. Of all the darned luck. The core shot is easier to fix.

Got pics?

Sorry to hear about your crash and busted knee. The base repair is easy. Good luck and mend fast!
