New Member with bad luck

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have been reading this site for quite sometime and have learned quite a bit on my comeback to skiing. I just started again after about a 8 year layoff. Bought a set of k2 4500 escapes with marker bindings and salomon 6.0 performa boots along with a season pass to the local ski "hill". It's been about 3 weeks and since my comeback and am very happy with my progression. I have been able to parallel very well down the blues and complete some freestyle tricks I once was able to do (backscratchers, dafis, helis occasionally). My dream is to be able to freestyle very well. However, I ran into an extreme difficulty the other day. While attempting a heli I ended up getting around only 270 thus landing sideways and driving my shoulder into the ground HARD causing my colar bone to crack. I am now out for awhile and am depressed because my excitement to ski is diminishing.

Ouch. Sorry to hear that but welcome back to skiing and welcome to epicski.

Hope you can keep the excitement up by hanging here with us and get well soon.

Perhaps buying a Warren Miller's film and watch some one else do the heli jump will cheer you up a bit. Just imagine if it were you.

Keep up the dreams!

buy some twintips during this off-season, and get a freestyle oriented film to get you stoked if youre serious about getting good!!
let your injury heal and get back on the horse!!
good luck
