I have had a few concussions in my day. I few years ago I shattered a helmet at Killington. Pieces of my helmet littered the trail. I am lucky and grateful to have had my helmet on, because I would have been out cold waking up in a hospital.
Earlier this year I overshot a jump at Bretton Woods and in the air I was just thinking all I want to do is not hit my head. I was able to re-adjust in the air and correct myself. Because I landed so flat just the sheer force ended up tearing my acl. As of yesterday I am not crutch free 1 month to the day post-op.
But all I can say is that I'm happy that it was my knee and not my head.
Head injuries are no joke and people who have never experienced one don't understand them.
Wear a helmet. KP is lucky he did. It may have been worse.
