About 15 years ago, I was skiing at Snoqualmie. Coming fast downhill, I caught an edge, popped both skis, and slammed face first into the ground. I couldn’t breathe for about two minutes, and came away with a cracked rib.
Sunday, I was skiing at Stevens Pass, and repeated the maneuver, with the exception of the “unable to breathe” part, but including the cracked rib part. It’s not as bad as last time, but it does mean that I can’t do much bike riding or lifting for a month or so. Luckily, it’s pretty early in the bike season, so I’m not going to miss much.
Last time I did this, I went on a 4-day ski vacation after the injury, so I’m pretty sure I can still ski.
