Kerryn Posted May 3, 2017 Share Posted May 3, 2017 Hi all I had a grade 1 SAH on 6th April - almost 1-month ago. I recovered well and was sent home 12-days later. I'm 45-years old, happily married with two young kids under 10. I'm an average snow skier and we have a family ski trip booked when ski season hits here in Melbourne - about 2-months from now. Am I able to ski? The doctor said "yes" but I've read all sorts of answers about "yes and no" to skiing. I don't do black runs, I'm a casual skier, cautious and I wear a helmet but I'm a tad confused whether I should or shouldn't go so if anyone else has experience with this, I'd be grateful for some personal experience stories. We will be on the mountain for 3-days so my aim is not to ski all day, just have a few runs here and there with my family. Some say altitude can be an issue - are there any hard and fast rules on that? Some say that if they ski for a couple hours, they have hell to pay with tiredness and headaches the following day. That sounds very unappealing! Any advice is greatly appreciated. We also have another ski trip pencilled in for January 2018 in Nozawa Onsen in Japan (8-months from now) but I'll wait to get some feedback from you folks to help paint the landscape of that being wise or not. Thanks Kerryn Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
