2021/22 was a rough season for me.
I discovered I had now cartilage nor meniscus left in the lateral compartment of my left knee.
I was basically on one leg all season.
I got some PRP injections, took a month off, skied less, trained harder, and learned to work with pain.
I was still able to ski 181 days in 2021/22 but it was a battle.
2022 was also the year of my very first Alaska heli-guide job – which was incredible.
Fortunately, beginning in December 2022, additional PRP injections in my knee appear to have helped.
I’m very grateful to be able to continue to participate in this sport I love.
Thanks to all of you for following along 🙂
