Default Can I still ride???

Well the other day i was at my local hill and i crashed hard on some ice and now i have a small fracture in my left wrist. I was told i will need a cast for four weeks this means i'll miss a school trip and a family trip to biggest mountain in my province.

I was wondering if i'll be able to go with my cast on. The trips are in two weeks and three weeks. I'm hopeing i will be able to go and i still have a lot of movement in my wrist. The worst part about this is that my snowboarding season ends right around when i get my cast off.

So can i still ride? or does anyone have suggestions to help me get better quiker? Thanks

technically, you can, but if you fall and land on it...its probably going to hurt, a lot.

so i'd say no.

Would you be taking the cast off? The time the doctor tells you it's okay to ride again is longer than it really is. They are obligated to tell you the longest possible time because if you take it off and it's even slightly not healed, they can get sued. When I wrestled in high school I dislocated my finger, and the doctor said I had to wait SIX WEEKS to wrestle again. I wrestled in 3 days and was fine. Obviously there is a big difference between a dislocated finger and a fractured wrist. If it was me, I would go for it.

If you're a beginner, don't do it. If you've got some experience then go for it, but be careful. A friend of mine broke his wrist the day after christmas and still has his cast on because he fell while snowboarding.

I think you should go, but dont get crazy on the Mt. just cruze around. I hurt my wrist bad last season but no to bad, but the next day I got some gloves with wrist supports in them, I never hurt my wrist again they were werth every penny!

It all depends on how often you fall... and how much you are willing to risk...

In January I was in the park (it was super icy) and I landed on my collar bone/shoulder with my arm outstretched and dislocated AND seperated my shoulder... Doc said I'd be out for 8 weeks. I decided I'd go a week later and just stay out of the park. Well, I did some backcountry stuff, snagged my board on a root or trunk of a tree under the snow and flew face first onto my shoulder again... yeah... I don't know if anything has ever hurt worse than that...
