I dont have a whole lot of boarding experience. I am a true newbie. Have been taking lessons every weekend for the past month or so.
But I was a nurse before I changed career direction and went into the legal field...and then became a stay at home mom. I will say that the break in that bone is pretty high (as others have stated). Do much more damage to that area and you will spend the rest of your life wishing you had listened to the doctor.
Personally I would not risk it. PLUS, I have to give my opinion as a mother as well. If my 17 year old had this kind of an injury I can tell you right now that they would not be boarding again this season. (my daughter is 7). Maybe that makes me sound like the mean and cranky old lady of the group...and I am ok with that. (I am only 32) What do your parents say?
On a final note...this entire thread has kind of freaked me out. lol My first lesson my instructor told me that if I felt like I was losing control or was going to fall I was to ball my hands into fists and tuck my arms in. She said broken fingers happen all the time.

Bones broke just from snowboarding? Femur, Ankle, and Finger on seperate occasions. Numerous stitches, muscle injuries, and dislocations/seperations... :S ...wouldn't trade the experience for the world tbh and Thankful to be alive
Dont let injuries hold you back from doing what you love.

|gmore10||i know how you feel bought a season pass which got refunded plus 800 dollars worth of new gear and hit a tree in my truck in november. Wound up dislocating my knee it sucks looking at your gear everyday not being able to ride but look at the positive you can still walk. Also snapped my clavical in half was back playing rugby 4 weeks later i think youd be good.|

....one last thing. DO NOT TRY AND OVERDO IT TO GET BACK SOONER!!! I can't stress that enough. I had shoulder surgery 2 1/2 years ago and wanted to get back into the gym more than anything. I pushed through therapy fast and began back at the gym quicker than I should have. My shoulder was feeling good and I started adding too much weight too fast. Probably 3 months or so in and about 6 months post surgery I blew it out again. Now I'm just waiting for an opportune time to have it done AGAIN. It hurts when I do any type of strenuous activity and is a bitch to deal with. Luckily for me snowboarding and mountain biking don't bother it too much so I can do those while I wait to have it repaired again.

Tremblant in Montreal planned on Feb 14th so it looks like that's gonna get scratched Tomorrow ill hitup my hill and see if they can give me a discount or something on next year's pass, this really blows to have wasted $400 for 4 outings. He said ill be good to go for sports (we told him hockey) in 3 months so somewhere during march is my "scheduled" comeback, but ill stick with my physio and try to get some muscle built up as soon as i can

|john doe||That break is close enough to the joint that I would call this a joint injury. Return your pass if possible and don't fuck around with doctors orders. How dumb would you feel if you go out early and fall on the weakened shoulder. Though this time you dislocate the shoulder or tear something because it is weak. Then you have an injury that is with you for life.|

Fuckkkkkkkkkkkk no lol.
Get it out of your head right now. Your primary concern right now is healing. Yes it takes 4-6 weeks for healing to be stable but that doesnt mean it's at the original strength. You have to Rehab first which is going to be a life long process. Dont' slack on it, but don't overdo it.
Take the year off, it's not the end of the world, focus on getting healthy.
