A crash from last February left me with a tear in my labrum in my right shoulder. I was able to finish out the season, skiing well into August but I new I would have to get surgery before the winter. My doctor originally told me that skiing by Christmas was going to be a push and would still depend on my physical therapy and range of motion. Luckily for me, everything went well during PT and he cleared me to ski almost two weeks early!Starting on December 17th we got to ski powder everyday. We made it up Cody peak a couple times and got fresh tracks on Pucker and No Name face. Christmas eve it snowed again and we woke up to 9 inches of more snow. By December 26th the storm had dropped 37 inches!
