I did a severe calf tear a the the end of Dec last year....trying to learn to ski , was out all of Jan (which was a poor snow month...oh well) then gradually back in it the beginning of Feb...sore; but I could tell even at the end of april that it was not back to 100%. So I say go for it but take it really easy and at the first signs just back off or call it a day....cause you don't want to re-injure and prolong time off the hill...but you don't want it to get weak or atrophy from not using....challenge it but do not over do it. At least thats what I did and was happy with my recovery progress.
