Hey Tele- lets keep the facts straight... I did NOT break both legs, just the one in more places than I care to remember. And for the record, I DID HAVE A HELMET ON, as I felt it was my first day on snow that season, would be skiing with a group loaded with testosterone (all EpicSki Bears), and about 5000 other lunatics on the Copper Mtn WRoD, I felt the risk was of such a nature that it would be prudent.
But rarely do I allow myself to get into such hi-risk situations.
Glad you're feeling better. Do you think the riskiness of the situation contributed to your accident? I thought it happened on a beginner run and no other people were involved.
My point is that accidents can happen to anyone anywhere. Good to hear you are now avoiding situations as risky as skiing green groomers. Stay safe.
