Hi Chris, downhill skiing is one of the activities I asked my surgeon about returning to and he said no problem – just stay away from cliffs and maybe hard bumps. I have a family practice doctor friend who had a hip THA in July, a knee replacement in December and skied on groomed intermediate runs in March the following year. He said it was 2 to 3 runs per day that first year, but he is back to both downhill and nordic without any problem – lots and lots of squats! I’m four months post-op, and may try a few runs yet this year 🙂

Good luck,
