I broke my ankle about 6 years ago. Big Bridge jump that landed too flat.
Over the last few years I have had several operations with plates and screws etc. Even now it has constant dull pain in the break and on the scar tissue. I took a couple of years off skiing to recover.
When I did return I have worn a protective support to put extra padding between the ankle and the side of the boot. Prior to the accident I always had pain due to impact. Particulalry when landing in the park and on ice when the ski can judder.
I ski park, backcountry, piste and have no desire to cut anything out in order to save pain. succombed to the real world and only ski 1 week per year now. I know it's gonna happen, I load up of pills, drink of booze at lot at lunch and grit my teeth. Towards the end of the day if you see a guy straight lining while screaming it is most likely to be me.
But as much as I accept it is part of my ski life I want to make it bearable. I have a footbed and the support but I need a boot with great support so that my foot does not move a mm as I think it is movement and impact that causes the discomfort.
Currently looking at the Lange Freeride 110 as an option to go with Line Chronics.
Has anybody got a similar situation and what was their solution?
