Well the season has come to a crashing halt. I was skiing 3 weeks after a torn right calf muscle and doing well at Loveland on the blues. That was the problem, I got the bright idea of going up the Ridge. First two runs ok, then on the third, it was soft at the top/steep part (Patrol Bowl I believe it was) and a bunch of leftover avalanche debris at the bottom. Piece of advice: Do not hit debris at 35mph :
Loveland Ski Patrol did a magnificient job getting me off the mountain, into the ambulance and getting me to the Level One Trauma center. I guess bone isn't supposed to stick out of the skin
Hope everyone has had better luck than me this season.
BTW, if anyone saw me, I was windmilling - curious if anyone saw it from the lift?
