Hi guys, heres what happends when those high wraps wont let go. Being a paramedic I see this stuff all the time, but this hurt having to cut those bindings off. Hes on a good road to recovery. As for the bindings, well they will be a trophy on his wall of shame.

CUT THE BINDING!!! It was supporting the ankle! He could have kept skiing through the season and get it casted in the off season!!

Absolutely classic "boot-top" fracture that used to be routinely seen in snow skiers. Due to better bindings, such fractures are actually pretty rare these days. Boot-top tib-fibs are actually more common among snowboarders, on average now, because the bindings are fixed. The stiffer the snowboard boot, the more common the fracture. It was rare when boarders all used "moon-boots", but now the boots tend to be hybrids with stiff uppers for better control.

Sound familiar? I suspect a strong correllation with current slalom ski and wakeboard bindings and as wakeboarding becomes more popular, I'll bet we see more of these...

Two words: Fluid Motion. I went to hardshells a long time ago to protect my ankles/knees and these are the best I've encountered. Sure you can still get hurt in them, esp. by running too much tension, but given proper installation and settings I think they're great. In the year I've skied them they have come off when they should have, and otherwise stuck to the ski. Great control, comfort, and warmth too.
