Patrick Schwarzenegger Tweets About His Ski Accident and Shares Awkward Photo

By: Heather Campobello - March 12, 2012

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 18 year old son proved that he could be a tough guy too. After taking a tumble while skiing in Tahoe on Saturday, Patrick Schwarzenegger took a photo of himself strapped to an orange stretcher.

He uploaded the photo to Twitter and said that it was just a little ski accident that left him with some some stitches and bruising along his back and butt.

Appreciate all the messages, love all you. I’m actually feeling really good today, and I even went skiing again today. Thanks again!!(image) 19 hours ago via Twitter for iPhone ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Patrick was also thoughtful enough to thank the doctors at Sun Valley Resort.

The mini terminator returned to the slopes in Idaho the next day despite having a few bloody gashes.

Even with his ability to ski through the pain, Patrick is not trying to establish himself as a tough guy. Most of his publicized efforts have been devoted to charities and humanitarian causes.

Patrick is one of the creators of Project360 that debuted in Fall of 2009. Project360 is an apparel and accessories brand that uses fashion to generate global and social awareness. All items from the line have little mantras on them that are intended to motivate and promote worldly causes.

Project360 raises funds and organizes donation for these causes: The Alzheimer’s Association, Best Buddies International, and The Eva Longoria Fund.

    Seems to be an error somewhere in this article. It mentions that he had the accident while skiing in Tahoe (California/Nevada), but thanked his doctors in Sun Valley…which is not in or near Tahoe. It’s in Idaho.
