dont let it beat you down, good job.
Fell? You never fall!
You must have struggled on that ice, even with the 'scratched up' grooming. Well get used to it. As an old guy, I fall all the time...even when walking on smooth sidewalks! And the bigger they are, the harder they fall!
The trick is to practice falling; when you feel yourself going down, rotate to take the fall on your delts and butt, not on your wrist, shoulder, knee or head!
Ha I don't know of anyone who can control their fall or they wouldn't do it. Soft snow not hard pack ice would of helped.
Yeah, well too bad about the shoulder. I guess when you're on skis and going down on ice, you don't have much chance to fall protectively. Hope it is just a momentary spasm, not a real tissue injury.
