I just had a check up with my orthopedic surgeon and I am cleared to go skiing with a few caveats! I must to ease back into it slowly, staying on terrain that I know is free of rocks, stumps or roots. It’s more about the uphill rather than the downhill. If it hurts or feels weird, I’ll take my skis off and walk down. I’ll be ultra conservative.⁣⁣With this recent snow and cold temps in Utah, it’s been hard for me not to get out and explore on my skis. Easing into it now will help me build strength and confidence for later in the season when it’s time to shoot and film and ski bigger lines. ⁣⁣I still have a few more sessions of PT and I need to rebuild 1/2 cm of muscle on my left leg, but I’m optimistic I’ll return stronger than ever. ⁣⁣I am so incredibly excited to start the 19-20 winter season!!! What a journey this ACL tear has been. I’m so grateful for all the support from my PT, doc, sponsors, my partner @rob.lea and you! ⁣#bigmtndreams @patagonia_snow @lekiusa @clifbar @prethelmets @keen #keenambassador
