Usually it’s the other way around for me, but sometimes your life can go from the worst feeling in the world to the best feeling in the world, in barely any time at all... thanks to anybody who reached out, tried to help, sent a message (that I may not have gotten back to yet), swung by the house, drunk dialled me before going to Garfs, FaceTimed me while I was crying underneath a blanket, and especially my volunteer nurse who has been working 25 hours a day for me. This feeling is for anybody going through some shit... it might not be easy, but it does get better! BEAST MODE is a relative term, but I’m slowly trying to crank it up, day by day, one step at a time! #TheBlownKneeBlues#KneesAndWants

The last 2 weeks have been the worst 2 weeks of my life, without a doubt. I have never been in such a depressed, painful, useless state ever before. Everybody likes a success story but sometimes you just don’t feel like that’s possible... it’s okay to say “I’m not okay” and tell people how you really feel. I was in so much pain after ACL reconstruction surgery and had people telling me that it’s not that painful, that I should toughen up and stop being a baby. I was a huge baby, my pain was at about an 11 out of 10 and I felt like I was going to pass out from the pain, even when highly dosed up on pain medication. The doctor in emergency said I would be fine and just to take more pain medication but I didn’t want to and I thought something was wrong so I booked in to see my surgeon. I told him how much pain I was in and he said I would be fine, but I kept being a huge baby and needed to find out what the problem was (besides me being a huge wimp) and next thing you know I’m getting an ultrasound and finding out that I have Deep Vein Thrombosis out of the blue, also known as a blood clot, and by out of the blue I mean it’s about a 1% chance but I guess that’s just my luck. The only thing I can do is take blood thinners and wait for them to break up the blood clot internally. This sucks, but things could always be worse... no matter what. #TheBlownKneeBlues#KneesAndWants

I don’t get to snowboard with this guy as often as I’d like to, and I don’t snowboard down in the states as often as I’d like to either, but I sure do I appreciate waking up in a parking lot with this guy and then going snowboarding... especially when it’s his birthday. Happy Birthday @wainosworld and hopefully we get more time on the slopes together soon, and maybe even a couple more evenings spent together on the tarmac! #HolyBowly#35mm

It was about 48 hours ago when the man told me to relax and breathe slowly as he put the mask over my face and I was transported to this infinite white room full of white noise and all of a sudden I was shredding pow with the boys again, laying turn after turn in bottomless powder with my best friends, and then I woke up all drowsy and confused when the nurse said “we fixed your ACL and it’s time for you to take your medication” and then I looked at my phone and realized I was just reliving this moment from last winter... but hopefully we can all go back to that time and place and the feelings that go with it (without the drugs that make you itchy and constipated), it just might not be for another 6 months or so, that’s all. #TheBlownKneeBlues#KneesAndWants Euphoric memory capture by @christos.bowers 📸

No more snowboarding for 6 months according to the doctor. I kinda felt like I had to go for one last session today before I go under the knife tomorrow morning, if anybody has any recommendations or advice on recovery after ACL reconstruction, let’s hear it... Thanks in advance & wish me luck! #RoadToHolyBowly#TheBlownKneeBlues#KneesAndWants

I spent the last week in the forest (with some great people) playing around in nature. Every once in a while it’s nice to get out of reception and quit hogging the bandwidth... like yeah, I get it, I posted this on the Internet and you’re looking at this on the Internet, but sometimes there’s a lot more going on in real life. Sometimes it’s nice to learn new skills, build relationships, and do something unique for a change. You’ll never do something different if you keep doing the same thing over and over and over again, so go get lost in the woods already! thanks for the tour @BorealFolk#KnowWhereYourGoodsComeFrom#SupportLocal#SupportNature#SupportNeighbours

Today is Earth Day, and realistically there are lots of people that don’t give a fuck about it... and maybe we’re not going to save the world overnight, but maybe we could just rape it a little slower? That might sound a bit aggressive but I wouldn’t mind enjoying snowy winters on this planet with my friends for at least a couple more years. If you’re on the same page, you might want to look into supporting @ProtectOurWinters and actually trying to do something about climate change? #ProtectOurWinters#EarthDay#BeTheChange#PassionIntoPurpose

If you ever met Dave Treadway, you would agree that he was one of the nicest and most positive people to ever set foot on this planet. He was also a very talented & smart man when it came to being in the mountains but he passed away recently, doing what he loved the most. Sadly, Dave’s family will be forced to survive without him... his wife Tessa will be responsible for taking care of 3 boys on her own and raising the @freerange.family by herself. Any support you can give towards the cause would be appreciated, there is a link to donate in my bio if you’d like to help! #DaveTreadway

One of the best things about working at @whistlergrocery is having an endless amount of Aussie mates to throw off of kickers, luckily @jake.findley survived this round! #FullExtension#ForTheBoys#UFD#Indy?

It was about this time last year when I was having the time of my life at #HolyBowly and I zigged when I should have zagged. Turns out that I tore my ACL but I still had a really good time, I just can’t wait to take care of it and get back to it next year. #SkunkApeSighting#RoadToHolyBowly#TheBlownKneeBlues photos by @fotomaxizoomdweebie 📸

It seems like everybody in the snow community is extremely aware of the risk and conditions at the start of every season, and then we tend to let our guard down. This is just a friendly reminder to be safe out there and go out in the mountains with your friends that you trust your lives with, you never know when it might come down to that situation out there... #PenisShadow

Holy Bowly is happening right now and I’m not there... the fear of missing out is real. This is worse than the combination of not going to Burning Man, Coachella, The Oscars or Woodstock but it will happen again next year. #FOMO#HolyBowly#BetterLuckNextYear
