On the last run of her first snowboarding lesson in early January, 23-year-old McGill student Christina Barakett decided it was time to try a 180-degree turn - an intermediate snowboarding move. But part way into the turn, Barakett took a plunge that landed her in the Emergency Department of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) Montreal General Hospital (MGH) site with a broken left wrist.
