Anyway, I clumsily fell entering a glade when my tip went under powder and I was pulled over. I wasn't anywhere near up to speed yet, it was more just a silly fall. When I fell, my left ski released and my upper calf/shin hit the edge of my right ski. It hurt, but everything seemed fine, so I kept going.
I got out of the glade and saw that there was a razor-like slice through my pants, right where I'd felt it hurt. I kept skiing, got to the bottom, and felt wetness on my shin so I checked to see if there was anything. Turned out there was a large gash that was gushing blood. I later found out the fleece under my ski pants was sliced through too.
After getting it bandaged, I skied the rest of the day, but ended up getting five stitches in the evening. Has anyone ever had something similar happen to them before? I'm still sort of amazed that such a thing happened..
