Ice for immediate injury..reduces blood flow and therefore swelling. No good for healing. Heat for longer term...increases blood flow so the magic blood pixies can do their healing thing. Ice plunge bath can be invigorating. It certainly wakes you up.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@stanton, I'm not sure it could, maybe if it was "how many km in a week holiday" but I suspect there's a lot less people that have tracked every day in a season If you change the title to 'How much shite does stanton post?' then you could easily get the longest thread ever on sH.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

.. the energy input from hitting something like a mogul (I am NOT going to call this a transient perturbation - damn I just did) can cause the body to collapse over the ski.... Is this a transient perturbation? https://www.facebook.com/brian.bell.98478/posts/1403013096472302?comment_id=1408109112629367&notif_t=feed_comment&notif_id=1492812503913964

"When used appropriately, power straps can be very effective in decelerating forward movement of the shank when transient perturbations in snow reaction force exceed the limits of the balance system" You know when you read something and think....this is complete bollox? transient perturbations....

Is it just me ? Not just you....seems like a lot of people suffer. I worked with a brickie once who had the view that you should keep laying more courses until the wall was finished or you get a nose bleed. I used to suffer from frequent nose bleeds. BIL is a vet and gave me some silver nitrate sticks. You just wet the end and shove it up your nose. Bleeding stops in seconds. Stings a bit to be honest. :-D

If you damage a lower limb I would rather it was treated in a French ski resort hospital than a NHS one. Get yourself to Musgrave in Belfast. They have had a fair bit of practice reconstructing lower limbs since about 1969. :-D

I broke three fingers on a chair lift in Orelle. It wasn't detachable and the kids were small, so we had a system where I would grab the chair to stop it for a fraction of a second and they would jump on. Mis-timed the grab and got a good whack. Went to medical centre in VT where they checked it and said it was bruising. Skiied on for 10 days with drink and drugs to numb the pain. It still hurt after a few months, so went to local A&E. x ray confirmed 3 broken metacarpals, two had healed well and one was slightly displaced. They offered to break it again and straighten it out, but it wasn't really THAT sore. Ring finger on my right hand is now as wonky as my pinky, which got a fair auld battering playing hurling in the olden days.

Is it not possible for those that are self employed to take out some form of insurance cover in the event of illness or accident? You can get IPB, MPI or ASU. IPB (income protection benefit) offers most cover, but is capped at 60% of your income. The benefit isn't taxable, but someone on 20k would be around £300.00 a month worse off while claiming. An employed person will recieve another £90.00 a week in SSP, so they should be roughly no worse of if they have maximum benefit and earn national average salary. Self employed person will not recieve SSP, so will be worse off with maximum benefit.....and it costs a fekin fortune.

@Grizzler, Are you three hundred years old? :lol: I would guess your phone has GPS. Most have done for the last decade. You just install the app and when you get in trouble press the button. Looks light a brilliant idea. Surprised there isn't one covering all of the Alps....it would only need a few extra lines of code.

@holidayloverxx, I remember (at the time of your injury) getting told off by the mad cyclist (batgirl's BF?) for saying 7 or 8 months was plenty if you worked hard....and you both worked hard in physio and were back in 7 or 8 months. @Grizzler seems to be of the impression that this will take 'a few years' to get 'back to normal'. Doing both legs at the same time doesn't have a cumulative healing time. Just makes physio and making tea a bit harder. IIRC you had a few messy breaks along with the ligament damage?

There's also the question of being composed enough to exchange details.... Not ski related, but collision related. After a decade in insurance of preaching to people to exchange details, take photos and immediately write down what happened....I was involved in an RTA in November. No injuries to me, his car was destroyed, mine was cosmetic damage only, but we were both still so shaky that it took me a bit of time (probably 5 minutes) to work out what to do. Then it turned out that neither of could write our own names or phone numbers due to adrenaline rush. Business cards exchanged and we sorted it out a few hours later. I've never hit anyone or been hit when skiing but if you see someone in difficulty anywhere surely anyone with a modicum of decency would stop and help, be that on the slopes, broken down car, RTA, split grocery bag or whatever. If you don't stop and help when someone is in trouble then I hope karma reeks revenge.

@denfinella, Book as early as you can. Decent sized car can range from £120.00 a week if you book early to £120.00 a day if you rock up at the airport with no booking. (Keep an eyes out for discount codes. They do actually get you real discount. Also check parking for your resort. Last time we went to Val Thorens we paid more for parking than we did for the hire car. Cham and Les Contamines have free parking, but they are so close than transfers can work out cheaper. We usually use carhire3000. Sometimes you get a really cheap deal and sometimes they screw it up entirely, but if you check everything on confirmation of the booking you should be OK.

@Grizzler, no witnesses, foreign national, foreign country, no admission of liability. I think it would be hard work. Speak to your insurance co. If they think they can get a rusty penny back from the person who hit you they will go for it. If they say no....don't bother stressing yourself.

We have an elderly set of Binatone ones......20 quid for 4 of them. They still charge OK and last the day after a decade of use. Tested them over 5 miles separation with no issues. Line of sight is important. If the kids get around the other side of a hill then they don't work. They are branded as Binatone Latitude...probably from about 2003

Im not sure if this is true but i was told (Austria specifically) it you read the very small print of the t&c of lift companys an articles of association with ski resorts. It is compulsory to be insured. Therefore if your involved in an accident with no insurance you may facr a double blow with the Police. Did you get toilet paper yet?

Bicarbonate of soda loves smelly boots. My work boots get wet and dirty every day. Dry them out, bit of soda bic and a quick shufty with the Henry sucking device in the morning.....No smells. Don't put the soda bic in if they are still moist. Wet and dried soda bic is the second hardest substance known to man (after Weetabix)

It is a confidence thing. Carving a blue feels like it puts energy back into your legs. Carving a red feels like you have pulled a horny blonde Russian hooker on her day off. Go faster and enjoy it, but stay in control.

(only kidding. Please don't. 1.5km of moguls and a long way to slide. Enjoy it from the bubble.) That made me proper lol. As a relative newbie I navigated roughly half a dozen bumps in the States...Believing I was now an expert I went for the big one. Was about a mile and a bit down and steep as a steep thing with a bit more steep. My thighs and face still hurt thinking about it a decade later. :D

@king key, what is the closing speed of one skiier moving at 80 towards one standing still? 80 again. Right? So from the frame of reference of one skiier in either scenario the other skiier is approaching them at 80 MPH. Now if the skiier who is standing still is replaced by a brick wall or a tree, the system will have exactly the same momentum and kinetic energy as two skiers hitting each other at 40MPH. It is a principle of physics. HTH :-D

@king key, Will that be a no then? I was hoping you would demonstrate using momentum and relativistic kinetic energy rather than a cartoon. What is the closing speed of two skiers moving towards each other if they are both travelling at 40MPH?

All I was trying to point out was that 2 skiers going into each other whilst both travelling at 40mph is not the same as an 80mph collision. I don't want to start a fight it's just a physics principle. :) Show us using equations. I like equations :-D

It's not to do with velocity but with conservation of momentum. I agree with @king key edit: best quick find, watch from 30 seconds http://www.our-space.org/media/item/72/13/Momentum-in-Space.m4v That video doesn't really explain it very well. Some interesting physics above.....and some hilarious. The important bit of that vid is that the total momentum after the collision is the same as the total momentum before the collision. If one skier is standing still he has no monentum. When someone tits him at 40 MPH they will probably come out with half the momentum of the moving skiier. If they are both moving at 40MPH then there is twice as much momentum in the system, flesh and bone will need to absorb twice as much energy than if one was standing still
