My knees were hurting pretty badly so I didn't expect to get much boarding in this time but I was willing to take the risk for even just a couple of runs. I'm stubborn that way. I couldn't decide between taping or bandaging my knee but alas I chose to tensor bandage it so I could take it off in between to give it a break. I lasted longer than expected; 4 hours. But by 9:30pm I could hardly make it down the slopes. Strangely, though penduluming puts a lot of stress on your knees and shins, on my last run all I could do was pendulum down most of the way. I couldn't balance or put much weight on especially my right knee anymore. Luckily I made it down without falling. Hopefully next year my knees can tolerate more so I can ride "real" mountains somewhere outside of Ontario.
I know its blurry but this is all I have ;)
All the snow on my mask is from the ski lift.
It was so windy and snowing a lot.
Yesterday we met a guy who also loves snowboarding. He told us that just last week he broke his leg, bruised 3 ribs, and ruptured his kidney but loves snowboarding so much he had to come back again this week..................... I had to giggle. Good thing I was sitting on the opposite side of him on the ski lift. I would have come up with a more realistic story but that's okay, he seemed to like his. I just had to share that. The things we say and do for the love of the sport :)
Happy trails and safe riding!
