I have been a recreational skier for 35 years. I love skiing, but as I live in NC and after skiing Colorado, skiing the east is more of a pain than a joy - so I try to get time out in CO if I can.
About 4 years ago, I had a really bad accident. (basically take the knee and bend it 90 degrees forward). Then the doc screwed up so what should have been 1 surgery has now become 3. Fortunately, after surgery 1 I found Dr. Steadman in Vail - who has brought my knee back to life!!! Thank you Dr. Steadman!!! I am building the leg up to try skiing in March at Copper, but I still do not have an ACL. I have been told (by Dr. S) that I can do this with a brace - but it is still a scary thought. Has anyone out there had experience skiing sans ACL either with or without a brace? Care to share your thoughts on the differences?
Thanks a bunch, Jessi
