- Stuck in Meribel with an injured foot :(
I’m out boarding in Meribel this week, but today I’m stuck in my room with a knackered foot.
Didn’t do it snowboarding – had a good day learning to jump in the park, then came back to the chalet for a jacuzzi – had a shower afterwards to rinse off, then managed to slip and nose dive out of the shower; luckily didn’t hit my head on the nearby radiator, but did smack my foot. Arch and heel are now swollen and black, and I can’t put any weight on it.
Can anyone better that for stupid injuries on a ski trip?

Couple of mates wanted to have a sword fight with icicles. They got one off a building, but couldn’t reach the next one along from the ground. One mate threw a snow ball at it and knocked it off as the other looked up and got a 1m long icicle in the middle of the forehead knocking him out and needing 5 stitches. Very lucky it didnt go in his eye…Posted 6 years agoteamhurtmoreMember
Jumped off a snow bank on way home from bar and bust my foot many years ago. Knew it was sore but didn’t realise it was broken. Strapped my ski boots up extra tight and skied on it for another week. Went to hospital on return home (essentially to skive school cricket in my A level year) and ended up in plaster!!
Sorry to hear about the incident – heal quickly.

Went skiing with a friend a few years back. He’d not been for a couple of years, wanted to have a very gentle run on a green to steady his nerves. He managed to fall backwards down the slope from 2mph, landing on his shoulder, breaking his shoulderblade. This was at 0850 on the first day, 10 minutes before the first lesson.
Awesome non-achievement.Posted 6 years ago
I’ve just got back from a very looooong lunch at a restaurant in meribel village.
caught the bus up to meet the others, and ended up sat in the baking sun drinking beers and eating pizza for a few hours.
It is so hot here! the slopes are full of people skiing and riding in t-shirts!

Go to ice hockey game. Go swimming. Drink large amounts beer and listen to some decent lives acts in après at Meribar. Can you rent sledge and go down the sledge run in Val?
My sister skived off work for a week to go skiing. Got my dad to ring in sick for her then broke her arm learning to board on day 3. Came home with a stookie and a great tan from a week off with chickenpox! Nobody at work said a thing.Posted 6 years ago
