[b]What is your worst injury while snowboarding?[/b]
My would have to be a hair line fracture on my ankle. Not that bad, but what makes it worse it happened the second day out last year. so i was suppose to miss six weeks but it was more like four and half. also the last day of last year i strained every tendon in my shoulder. thats about it for serious stuff...

Four seasons back, I severely broke the sh1t out of my elbow in the park at Sugarbowl. They had this HUGE tabletop as the first hit in the park. I charged at that f--ker, sailed completely over it, landed in the flats way too hard, bounced, flipped over like 5 times (snapping my elbow backward like a dry twig), slid another 20 yards or so on my back down into the halfpipe and passed out cold. When I woke up, people were just cruisin past me like nothing happened. I had to get up and ride down to the lodge, where I spent 3 hours in total shock, warming my bloated, flimsy, PURPLE arm over a damn barbeque. Then I drove my buddies home, and didn't get into the hospital until the next day. Even after massive physical therapy, my arm's still not the same. Still love those tabletops though! :twisted:

I have been lucky because nothing really bad has ever happened to me, but the most embarasing thing that ever happened(and this hurt a lot too :? ) was i was goping really fast down a hill and i caught an edge and fell forward, skidded a lot forward and my board came up behind me and smacked me in the back of tha head :oops:

I sprained my mcl three weeks before the season ended last year. It sucked because I still had to work and since I was on crutches I had to scan tickets all day because I couldn't run the lifts. Plus we got a ton of snow at the end of the season so I actually cried. I remember sitting at home with my roomate crying because I couldn't ride. On ride breaks I'd go sit in the shack and watch out the window while everyone else rode and try not to be such a girl with all the pitiful sobbing.
