Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Do you wear any type of knee support? (apart from mojo)
I have tried all sorts & what works best for me is a patella strap.
I have similar issues about flexing the knee to much & ending up on the floor! Luckily I have one good knee.

What I found with any type of tube support was that it was supporting the whole knee. So everything would transfer to the whole knee.
So by the end of the day, I would get that dull constant ache.
I will quite often wear the strap day-2-day use. It seems to offload a lot of the crap before it hits my knee. Think I got mine from one of the £1 shops.

@Frosty the Snowman, When you ski well, allowing the ski to do what it was designed to do, you know it....just like you know when you are fighting the ski and the slope (you can also hear it, as the skis noisily scrape across the slope).

I'm delighted you got some good from this thread.

Thanks folks Very Happy

@Mr.Egg, I use no support apart from the Mojo assistance as the knee is very stable and strong, it's just fcuked.
We had 3 physios in our group {big shout out to Hills Physiotherapy of Doncaster) and Doris treated me as the holiday went on. One of my issues is that the kneecap is virtually seized in a partially dislocated position. She worked it each night to keep me going.
Experience and advice has tought me that no form support works.

It's been a tough week this week, lots of discomfort, but really worth it. Fingers crossed it settles down. Am being encouraged to use it, but we'll have to wait and see about the bike ride in the morning
