I was at Killington this past weekend, and saturday throughout the day was pretty great. Decent conditions for groomers, and barely any crowds except at the gondolas. Cue 3PM and I take a wrong turn and somehow end up at snowshed (the bunny hill) and have to go down the stupid little thing to get to a quad that can get me somewhere. As im just coasting down a stupid out of control snowboarder just cuts straight across the hill and takes me completely out. My ski digs into the mountain and spins my left leg and I hear CRACK. Couldn't move my leg for a good 5 minutes, thankfully the stupid snowboarder had the sense to stop, apologize, and call for help. I get tobogganed down the hill. Long story short, the next day they take some x-rays at the orthopedic clinic they have at Ramshead and the doc diagnoses a torn MCL and ACL. Now I have a good 5 weeks of recovery time for the MCL before I can have my surgery for the ACL. What was supposed to be a 5-day skiing spring vacation in March is turning into a 9-day stay at home for the first bit of post-surgery rehab. Now I am in a brace and limping around everywhere. Everything takes 5x longer than it should.
Why the hell are people unable to look uphill before they turn? It is the most freaking obvious and instinctual thing you should ever do!
Vent thread over. That felt good
