Freak accident ends ski season early for me.

Last Tuesday, skiing in very thick fog, I was leading the group and skiing blind, very slowly and in total control. I hit an ice wall, made from a snow cat track, and went forward head first over it, but my ski stopped dead. I tore my achilles tendon, clean in half, in the ski boot. Same place in Austria where I did the other one, thirty years ago playing tennis, bad luck with Achilles here, but this time skiing. My first ski accident with injuries in my whole life. So, I'm out of commission for at least 6 to 8 weeks. What a silly way to get injured.
