Powderpuffboy: First I would suggest that you pass to protect your leg, until surgery is complete.
However, here is another option to consider. You could learn to 3-track, ie two outriggers and one ski. Breck is the perfect place to try this out. BOEC,(Breckenridge Outdoor Educational Center) is one of the best adaptive ski learning centers in the nation. On top of it the folks are great.
Call first to be sure they will rent you the outriggers for the week and give them a run-down on your injury, so they can decide if they will take you with such a new injury. I would suggest that you get a letter from your MD or surgeon approving of your skiing, to present to BOEC or you may be out of luck.
If it all works out I would suggest that you and your ski group consider making a Monetary donation to BOEC, since they live on donations as a non-profit recreational organization. Most of the instructors are volunteers-Like me at Loon Mt. NH. I'm the Tech Director and on the Adaptive Educational Staff of PSIA-EAST. At any rate Good Luck. Happy Trails.
