Maybe he needs to make the shift to snowshoes...
Im thinking just go straight to sit ski.
I know where you live!!!!
And I have an angle grinderrrrrr.
Luge or skeleton me thinks.
Fifi suggests extreme darts or lawn bowls.
The boot would probably glide ok on ice...so perhaps curling?
I reckon get a wobble board and exercise the crap out of it. Mine is a misshapen lump that crunches, thanks to poor medical advice and no rehab. Still works, but I have to be mindful, which you do get used to after 25 years of it.
Im just pissed at losing a ski buddy again! At least its not permanent!
Oh man, totally sucks but .... you could get that foot in a snowboard boot
get well soon Mr Whippet
I'll park in the Delica 2017 memorial spot! Bad, sad news about your ankle @tele-whippet - orthopaedic surgeons seem to do well out of snowsports enthusiasts as I've found to my cost in the past .
Isn't the Deltoid in the shoulder? Just saying....
Seriously that sucks the season is over for you, I was looking forward to catching up for a few laps in the coming weeks.
Stay safe and heal well.
Telemarkers are different.
Better , not different!
It's a subtle qualitative difference
I just read the MRI report Tele. Bugger! I didn't understand much of it. But it doesn't sound good. Heal well buddy. I'll drop a knee for you this week.
Windy, cloudy, T2B on shortened course from top of Snowgums, no chairs on Kosi. Not sure much will be open today.
Looks like it was a tad breezy last night, gusts between 90 - 120 kph at Top Station all night!
@tele-whippet happy to lend you my chariot to get around, you'll just need to convince someone to tow you.
Good luck for a speedy recovery.
Any idea what leg/ankle movement caused it? a vertical twist of the leg?
Inward rotation of foot with forward flexion of ankle -- pop.
I should have got you into the bucket bro.
I talked a mate into walking home one night, felt pretty guilty when he ended up in hospital later than morning after the pain intensified, to discover his leg was broken....
Mind you, I would have done the same.
Given all the circumstances, I think self rescue was a fair option.
Don't think it did anymore damage, just a tad grimacing.
Klettergirl said we are a pair of silly old codgers.
ok, so stiff alpine boots done up nice and tight and you should be good for the remainder of the season
That really sucks, wishing you a full recovery
Given the conditions forecast for tomorrow (winds 40-60kmh) I'm wondering how likely wind hold is going to be, and how easy it is to navigate around the mountain using T bars if this is the case?
That boot will take crampons for sure.
Should be ok Snowgums Gunbarrell etc
40-60 will be all lifts open.
Those guys rocking it
Sh!t...rag dolled it. Hope he was ok.
That looks so messed up. Gotta drain all that yellowy purpley badness out somehow. Compression bandage, more elevation, a bottle of meaty Martinborough Pinot?
Any physio yet?
Am still seeing one after my calf blew. (Nowhere as bad as your ankle).. they have good tricks up their sleeves...love when the moistened electrode suction cups go on. Dial it up and feel the squeezy buzz..gets it all moving and draining in the lymphatic system I guess... or totally placebo!!
Thredbo is down there somewhere
Jump I dare you.......
Only reason you can watch is knowing he got off with just a concussion from memory. Milto sent me ithe link, he was there in Sochi.
You really are torturing yourself,
Bit of freezing rain overnight?
Certainly icy this morning, but extra grooming has kept lots options open - nice work Thredbo. Oddly, off piste wasn't great. Certainly softening up now.
Did you go in the Top to bottom? Are you around in the week or only on weekends?
10/4 Raced Masters. Im solo in Thredbo for another week. Lets hook up tomorrow.
Dived off the bottom of the basin t this arvo and threw myself at a runaway board heading for the bluff.
Thought it was going to knuckle me. Caught it with no injuries. Didn't even go down. It was a pleasant surprise as I knew it had to be stopped. It was a death board.
What a lovely coincidence being found by you in the GB que this morning. Hoped you enjoyed your trip to the light side and to see the roller on the carpark soon.
Yes, it certainly was a coincidence . Thanks for showing me a little of Thredbo this morning! First up the immaculately groomed and perfectly icy High Noon. Got to test my edges out there. Then some turns through the very scenic Cruiser area and exploration over at the Basin T bars. Wonderful that barely a crowd was to be seen. I ticked off a few black runs including Lover's Leap (best thing I can say about that was that it was short), part of the Bluff, and Little Beauty, which was indeed lovely apart from the icy patch I skidded on leading to a very spectacular stack and slide down the hill. My legs are dead after polishing off Supertrail, World Cup, True Blue, Dream Run, and High Noon again. I had a fantastic time at Thredbo today. Sure, the snow might not have been powdery and soft ("icy crud" sniffed the lady sitting opposite me at lunch) but it was a beautiful day with gorgeous scenery, no lift lines, and good company. I am one happy lady. Until next time ....
Did Parker have some Friday Flat donuts procured for you upon returning to the Roller in the evening!?
