Hi...I can not say u can not, I will say I  don't think it is a wise choice...one fall, one hit of the head at those speeds...will do more damage....

Look at the fatalities from falls skiing and they did not have chiari or brain surgery b4 it happened.....just a thought.

i went skiing  once or twice after. I am a pretty good skier you know take it kinda easy but have a good time and dont  crash. . but one baby wipe out when stopping and i bumped my head. Barely bumped it and just the thought of it being any worse freaked me out..
needles to say  even though I live in a ski resort town I am not skiing again. I am having a Very hard time with the not snowmobiling. its such a blast.
