My ortho (he is also a skier) said I could ski if I used a short, light ski this season because he doesn't want to risk high torque loads applied to my leg. My wife and ski shop conspired against me, and now i have a 161 Salomon lord.
I'm 5'10 and 270 (I put on about 20 pound over the summer from being inactive). I realize this is way off the chart for me, but is there anything I need to know or do to get the most out of this situation?
I'll let you know how it goes after this weekend, but any tips before then would be extra appreciated.
