, talk to several docs. One of my ski buds last year had some developing back/neck problems, but has been a season pass skier for 46 years, he still skied dialed back a notch and on opiate pain meds till the season was over then went in for some surgury. Another ski bud has a fused disc and it limits him a bit but he also has bilateral total knee replacements and he keeps up. It seems that skiers do need strong backs and boarders do take alot of jarring irregardless the falling.
