    You may want to consider using a compex for strengthening, you can build a lot of muscle and strength in a short period of time.

    This is how I get strong for the ski and mountain bike season.

    Hmm, it's not really my sort of thing, to be honest... I've never considered anything like that. I often polish off the last few gobfuls in a bottle of my daughter's formula though, that's pretty tasty.
    Can you recommend a product, and I'll do some reading on it...?

    I use compex elite, but there are many other ones.

    Be prepared for muscle contractions harder than anything you've ever experienced, not like you can watch TV while you're doing it.

    Ohhh, I see! Sorry, I thought that was a typo and you meant complex, like a protein supplement complex. I understand now. You must have been rather confused by the sudden non-sequitur about my daughter's bottle formula.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll see if anyone has one kicking around I could try out.

    Peds if its any benefit, the emergency doc and follow up doc told me i had torn my meniscus last summer.
    Went to the physio a day later and they laughed and said it was grade 1 mcl sprain...
    Good luck with it.

    I also had a surgeon tell me, after looking at the scans, that surgery wasn’t necessary, but long, slow rehab was.
    Peds, I might ratchet down the certainty about charging so soon. As Willie Nelson’s grandmother used to tell him, “a hard head makes for a sore ass.”

    Woah. Yeah, we liked him a lot, super humble, you’d never know he did that.

    I don't charge, I ski very steep, very exposed lines, very, very slowly.

    Sounds similar to when I hyper extended MCL in 2015.

    After the crash I stood up and knee collapsed.
    Was convinced that I had ripped ligaments : knee felt unstable.
    Need to get a ski-doo off the hill - felt pretty crushed and ready for 9-12 months out.

    Couple of days later I was hobbling about and putting light weight on it.
    Turned out to be a bad tear rather than a full rapture.
    Though it took me about 3 months of physio to be be right again.
    Good luck!

    Fact you can put weight on it is a very good sign.
    Though don't be surprised if it takes longer than a few weeks.
    Ligaments take awhile....

    Snow for the Euros.

    Any euro mags have any info on March 24 skier fatality in Zermatt? American B. Johnson. I didn’t know him, but was co-worker of guy I’ve skied with. Don’t know if it was avy, or crash/accident related, or what. Details online seem scant.

    ^^ superficial googling in german indicates that a 34 year old american crashed badly on that day and died in the hospital the following day from his severe injuries. No information on cause of crash. https://polizei.news/2018/03/26/zerm...rt-sein-leben/

    this also came up on a second incident/person: https://www.nau.ch/news/sitten-vs-ve...orgen-65320202
    it says that they recently found the body of someone who got caught in an avalanche on march 24. he was not reported missing for some time and then it took a while to find him.

    So Vivian Bruchez skied this the other day with two Charlets, Douds and Babs.





    This is, obviously, absolutely fucking mental. Chapeau to the team.

    Mental yes. Obvious? Not so much. Or do I miss the hidden couloir from the top?
    It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.

    No hidden couloir... in the topo photo, the end of the line is the end of the line, with only 500m of adventure. Not much in the way of height difference by some standards, but I don't think that really applies on this line. Similar to Andreas Fransson's line on Fitz Roy.

    Well Tof Henry and Douds Charlet skied or boarded the north face of the Triolet a couple of days ago, first full descent on skis (Papy Millet skied it from half way up last year), and the second ever descent after it was done on snowboard 23 years ago by Dédé Rhem and Jérôme Ruby. I guess you could call that an adventure...

    Definitely conditions ripe for adventure here for the last three weeks, for those who want it. It's a real shame I wasn't a part of it. There's been lots of great stuff done, and a few once-in-a-generation lines been skied. But the leg is, as far as I can tell, absolutely fine, and I'm positive that the MRI I have booked on Monday will confirm that. I got a second opinion from another doctor and he thinks it's just an inflamed miniscus. I'm trail running with a 10kg baby on my back, I'm on the exercise bike for over an hour a day... there's nothing wrong with it. Skiing very, very soon.

    Sorry for the dry spell! This is the best I can offer at the moment. A bit of pine needle welly splash action.

    You know it!



    I've tried dragging her along a bit on them, and if I didn't have this knee then I'd have hiked up a baby slope with a pair of snowblades to do the armpit-dangle thing by now. That's on the list for next week.
