    I think France is a pretty safe pick. I wouldn't count out England, Belgium, or Italy, but they don't have the depth of France. Germany and Spain aren't particularly inspiring at the moment....

    I've been on the oxy-naproxen-tylenol train since leaving the hospital. Seems to be working, since I actually feel better today than yesterday. The side effects of the oxy are pretty miserable,...

    Had surgery this afternoon. Doc repaired the ACL using the patellar tendon, sutured the small medial meniscal tear (2 all-inside sutures), and did a root repair on the lateral meniscus. Because of...

    To add to gregL's point: what is the end goal for you? Do you want to ski long volcano routes in the spring? Eastside couloirs in in variable conditions? Short roadside tours in the Tahoe area when...

    Absolutely. I won't really "know" shit until I wake up after surgery and the doc tells me what he did.

    And I knew for certain I had fucked something after my accident. It was the last run of a...

    Talked to my surgeon this morning. His read of the MRI is that neither meniscus is fully torn, so I'm hoping he's right and the radiologist is wrong. He also said he wouldn't even consider a...

    Yeah, I've been reading that thread pretty closely and have found some good nuggets in there. I'm honestly not too concerned about the ACL (maybe I should be?) as it seems that the surgery and...

    ACL, MCL, and menisci tears

    I found a couple older threads dealing with this issue, but nothing recent, so I figured I'd start a new one.

    I fully tore my ACL and lateral meniscus and partially tore my MCL and medial meniscus...

    East aspects in the Rose area were excellent--inch or so of cold soft snow on top of an edgeable base. Didn't go above 10k, but I'm guessing it's a bit more scoured up there. N aspects were scoured...

    It was pretty unpleasant. Didn't help that we started at the wrong trailhead and had to traverse an extra mile and a half to get to the canyon mouth. We were able to skin from the car, but it was...
