Well two days before the big storm I tumbled and went from 35 to 0 in a nano second crushing the back of my rib cage into the back side of a mogul. I thought it might just be muscular but after a week in the wilderness doing trail work and sleeping on the ground I’m fairly confident I legitimately cracked a rib or a few. Ouch.
Oh well. I guess for the next 4 to 6 weeks I’m going to be the dad that mostly sits in the lodge to get his daughter out skiing. :D
In the meantime, here’s some pics from the Mazatzal Wilderness area. It’s an incredible area outside of Payson and Globe Arizona.
I’m back at it! I got x-rays last week and the doc said that there’s no substantial breaks so I got the ok to go ski as long as I took it easy. Doc is a touring partner so I trust him!
I got in two days in the area then went for a tour today. The last two storms didn’t really come through but with an inch recorded over the weekend we knew it blew into somewhere for good enough skiing. We found it!
