Being overly excited my first time at palisades, I took a tumble, lost a ski, and felt pain on the outside of my left knee.

No pain walking, no pain gingerly skiing to the bottom or skiing groomers the next day. No feeling of instability during normal walking.

Messing around with it, there's sharp pain when loading the knee in valgus (ski "angulation" action, aka foot slightly internally rotated, not pronated/supinated, straightening the knee from past the midline), no varus pain. In skis, a "nose butter" motion triggers the sharp pain was well.

Going to the physio asap, but covid is throwing a wrench in things.

Reading the details written out, it sounds like lateral meniscus based on the valgus pain, any other ideas or experiences?
