Skiing East coast May-October

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

I started skiing in Feb 2014. Got completely hooked to it. I usually go to Killington and can do a lot of blacks there. This time I got rental gears and started doing some seriously fast skiing and inadervantly broke my ACL and miniscus in my left foot. I've decided to go for the surgery, after a lot of discussions and reading. Talking to doctors they say it's going to take at least 4 month, best case, to get back to skiing.

Now looking around, everything seems to close down towards May when I might just be getting back up from rehab.

So could someone tell me what would be open around here at that time which I could go and ski every weekend ? (within 8 - 10 hrs drive from NYC ) . I have to start from green. I need to make sure my basics were right and the fall wasn't my fault but I should get back to easy black pretty quickly.

There is very little within an 8 to 10 hour flight from NYC open from May to October with groomed green runs available. Work hard on rehab and train to be strong for next November/ December.

There's a whole lot here that leaves me scratching my head.  I want to say it's a troll, but I honestly don't know what he would be trolling for.

Too bad the indoor ski place by Giants stadium didn't open

Hey. Why would I be trolling. It is a legit question. I love skiing and its a bummer that I can't ski for the whole freaking season. I looked around the internet and couldn't find anything open after I heal.

There's no way you could go through all the doctors visits and surgery and then say that your ACL and meniscus is in your foot and also misspeak that you "broke" it.

 

And that's not even getting into the question of summer skiing.  99% of the general public isn't even aware that there is skiing in April, never mind asking for options from May-Oct.  There are 1-2 places in the whole of North America that offer lift served summer skiing.

Sounds more like inexperience speaking, rather than blatant trolling.

Oh yeah, its not foot, its in my knees !

Yeah 'broke' is a wrong word, 'tore' !

 

I hope that satisfies your nitpicking !

 

Also, 

I don't care what 99% general public awareness is. I skied half way till May 14 in Killington. I am planning a 10 day trip to whistler blackcomb once my PT says I'm good to go, but its costly to go there more than once and I want to get better faster.

In that case, this is your best bet.

I just called them! They're open. This should be a good place to start back again and wait for November.

Thanks ! :)
