You'll find someone In the parking lot to share your ticket. Never had a problem at K. Don't be afraid to ask. They are very appreciative 99% of the time. I may be heading up tomorrow but my arrival time may be unpredictable. I'm in a Ct Ski Council ski club and can ski for $37.00 as reported by Steamboat. I'll PM you later if I reach a 100% decision on this.

Don't know if anyone else made it to K. on Sunday, but I was impressed with the product on the ground! Although we did not get on the hill till about 11:00 we had a great day... Until about 3:15 when I broke my collar bone :-( it was NOT a pleasant bus ride home. There were also way to many issues on the way there to go into at this time. But the biggest snag was an accident that literally had us crawling on 91 South of Hartford for almost an hour. I counted 8 other spinout incidents between New Haven and Hartford alone. Just glad I wasn't driving. With any luck I will be able to salvage the second half of the season. Wish me luck guys ;-)

End of day, low light, traverse back to the bus, on a small connector trail I turned around to make sure that my brother was still behind me. Must have hit a washboard section, went ass over tea kettle, rolled over my left shoulder and bonked my head. Good thing I always wear a helmet, because I was disoriented. When my brother rode by I really expected him to be coming from the other direction. He also said "your all right, your skis stayed on, lol" I was surprised my skis stayed on, because I knew I was not "all right" We got to the bottom and figured I should seek medical care. So I trudged through the tunnel to the yellow building and got hemmed up with a Civil War Sling, packed some snow in a zip lock bag and they slapped me on my ass and sent me on my way.

Wow. That sucks. I didn't end up going (worked late on the honey-do list Sat). I hope you heal up fast so you can enjoy the best part of the season!

Thanx Sammy. I haven't missed a day of work yet, so I am anticipating a quick turn around with this one. The doc really boosted my confidence when he said of all the things this could have been this would be his top choice... :)

Sorry to hear you got hurt. Gotta watch out for those little connecter trails. Seems like more people get hurt on simple trails than when skiing something more challenging. Probably has something to do with concentration or lack of. Hope you can get back out there soon.

I remember hearing the usual down time for a broken collar bone is six weeks, Aaron Rogers, if that's so you'll be back mid January, right around when things should be getting good. +1 on bad things happening on easy trails, I caught an edge at Elk on the flats and was shot towards the trees, I can remember thinking, wow, that's how easily it could end, when you least expect it. Good luck with your recovery.

Sounds about right depending on the type of fracture. I've seen some particularly nasty ones that involve extensive surgery with plates and screws and incisions running all the way from the shoulder to the sternum.

Won't need any surgery, Doc didn't even give me any pills. The only thing he prescribed was this Super Sling. It's some serious hardware! Oh and he advised me to take 2 grams of calcium a day...

Scotty, if I was not subjected to random urine tests from my employer I would definitely be partaking in some Herbal Therapy ;-)

Jobs testing for the miracle plant makes no sense to me. I understand it one of the biggest reasons I haven't quit my current job. They haven't tested for anything yet. Get well soon so you can ski Platty when it snowy 2014.
