I had severe herniation and a rupture in the same disk. I dealt with almost crippling pain from my sciatic nerve being pinched. I went through physical therapy and now the pain is mostly gone except for very rare minimal flare ups. I haven't gotten a scan in awhile, so I don't know what my current status really is, but I've been snowboarding and skateboarding pain free.

Everyone is different, but don't give up on snowboarding. Put in the work to heal yourself and you don't have to limit your activity.
