Steamboat 3/14/08

14 Mar, 2008

This week was a bit of a disappointment for me. I didn’t ride during the week since I had a podiatrist appointment on Tuesday. I should have waited to see the foot doctor till the end of the season. So now, my left foot hurts to put weight on the ball of the foot. It’s getting better and should be all healed soon.

Steamboat got 7 inches of snow last night and is 2 inches short of beating the record for most snowfall. Today was perfect for me to spend the afternoon riding since I was done with work by noon, but unfortunately plans changed.

I’m smiling right before realizing my foot hurts

I found my foot still hurting so I ended up riding switch to get back down the mountain. I enjoyed what little powder I could get without getting in too much trouble with tree riding switch.

I found myself being pretty cautious riding back down the mountain and taking it easy. When I did ride regular, I felt my ankle very uncomfortable.

Since I was riding fairly slow, got this picture of the terrain park from Vagabond.
The sun came out and it was a beautiful afternoon. I came home and sat outside with my dog enjoying the sunshine and a cold beer.

I made sure to stock up on pain meds and padding for my foot so I can ride the next two days on it.

    Thanks Crispy! Yeah foot felt a lot better today during riding but still not a 100%, so hopefully soon. Glad you like the reviews, the NS reviews of boards I’ve been riding will be the last to be put up so expect those in the future.
