No ideas, but take it easy. Don't stress the break anymore. If you stress it too much then you may be out even longer

Rehab the hell out of that leg. Try not to let your muscles atrophy. If you let that happen, rehab is going to take longer and be more painful than if you did what you can now.

broken bones aren't the best thing in the world.

for a complex and critical joint like the ankle, i would reckon you need to persist with zero impact exercise of movement, to retain musculature and elasticity whilst minimising risk of antagonising the break point.

therefore most / ALL alpine based sport, where there is velocity or risk of falling and smacking your heel / foot, is ill-advised.

take the year off! it is just one year. otherwise, if you fuck up, you'll be limping like a peg legged pirate for ever!

and pirates suck!

yea, what he said. That Paolo is a very smart man. Well, we think he's a man. He says he's a man. But do we ever really know on the internet...
