Down for the count but able to keep going

You can call me DUB I was snowboarding at stevens pass in WA and took a hard fall in which my leg caught a cut off tree causing both knees to nearly touch (keep in mind that my feet are stationary and havent moved closer).

Down and hurting i knew that i was injured but couldnt let my friends down on the first run of the day. I gave myself a 60 second breather and forced my self on my way. If you know the area, i was just starting down the back side off of TYE and hugging the right side. I continued down the hill with a lot of pain but "nothing i couldnt handle" after that run i headed back to the front side and headed to Skyline, the longest lift on the hill...
