Numb big toe after skiing!

I went skiing during the long President’s Day weekend in Mountain High resort.

The weather was perfect. The snowfall stopped right after we parked the car at the resort and the sun started to shine on us. However, because it was the 3-day long weekend, too many people showed up. It took me almost 2 hours of waiting time to go from the eastern base to the west! It was already past noon, after I got on the lift and began skiing down the trail.

The snow was pretty good, the best I have ever seen in Mountain High. The fun of skiing down the hill was just as usual, until I noticed that I could not feel the big toe of my right foot. At first, I thought it was no big deal, which turned out to be a mistake.

On the way back home, my toe started to feel strange: it felt numb even though it was wrapped in my warm hands. “Am I going to lose my toe?”, I began to worry. Once home, I opened my computer and did a search for “numb toe after skiing”. Google once again showed its magic and I learned that my numb toe was caused by the over-tight ski boot and the small nerves were badly hurt. Luckily, it is not too bad, since the nerves could recover over time. Had it been frostbite, I would be in urgent care room.

UPDATE: It has been almost 2 weeks. The big toe is feeling much better now without the numbness. However, it is still not fully recovered as I kind of feel something different in that toe from time to time.

UPDATE 2: Okay, now my big toe kicked back with normal feelings! If you are going to ski sometime, be careful about your toes :P

    Over two years since your post, but these things never change! Glad to find your post as I am experiencing the same thing right now, but for me it most of the sole of my left foot. I could feel it happening at the time but thought it was just cold and would go away. New boots, professionally fitted etc, so they are a bit tighter than i’m used to.
