Yes, listen to JoeR. Just wait till next season, and come back stronger. I was advised not to run for 4 months after a meniscus tear surgery, and I tried running after a month. Let's just say it didn't go well. Sometimes we get carried away by the excitement and thrill of snowboarding, but it is important to remember that your long-term health > snowboarding.

We might even have a better winter than this year.
