The body responds to the inflammation by forming a calcaneal spur. Wrap a couple of ice cubes in a soft towel and rub it very gently on the affected area.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office says the unidentified snowboarder collided with the skier, identified as Jenny Elma by her boyfriend, Stu Press. The skier eventually left the scene. resourceElma’s boyfriend says the snowboarder was “airborne at a high rate of speed” when he collided with Elma’s leg. She slid about 30 feet with the snowboarder on top of her. Press says the man stayed at the crash scene for about five minutes, then left without providing his contact information. Elma was transported to Keystone Clinic, where she was diagnosed with multiple fractures in her left Tibia, an injured meniscus and a broken Fibula bone. She was then taken to Vail Valley Hospital, where she underwent a five-hour surgery and had 13 screws put in her leg. She is expected to be hospitalized through the weekend, and her recovery could take up to a year. She works in product sales at the Keystone Ski School. The Skier Safety Act requires all skiers and snowboarders involved in a crash to stop, exchange information and summon ski patrol to render aid to the injured parties. Often times, ski collisions are settled in civil lawsuits.
