Default Shoulder Separation

So I was bombing my local hill on Monday and having a complete blast until I hit some of our famous East Coast ice on a double black diamond run, ate shit, even with an MTX board, and landed with the full force of impact directly on my shoulder.

The doc says it is a 3rd degree separation and I am in a sling and doing the ice pack therapy thing. I am supposed to go to Jay Peak in 2 weeks, and then Park City at the end of March. Wondering if anyone has any experience with this type of injury, especially when it comes to recovery times. In other words, I am trying to figure out if I am screwed out of my trips, or if there is still hope. Either way injuries suck and I am depressed as hell because what is always a damn short season, just got that much shorter for me.
