I’m not an avid skiier or a mother, but maybe a bump will help people in that category see your post! I have a friend that recently had a baby and she was saying that she wanted to go water skiing during the summer, but was advised not to by her doctor even though she wasn’t very far along at all (found out she was pregnant in June, baby came in February). Maybe snow skiing is different though!

My sister lives in Telluride Colorado and snowboarded the mountains until about 30 weeks..

I’m a fairly advanced skiier (although probably not quite advanced as you) but I know the type of skiier you’re talking about.
I am currently pregnant so there was no skiing while pregnant for me due to the season.

I’m not going to tell you “too risky”, Here are my thoughts:

I think greens/blues would be low-risk, but whenever you’re out on those trails, especially on a busy day you run the risk of Novices skiing into you. I would be far less concerned about myself falling and more concerned about being hit by someone else.

Personally, I think the risk level for an advanced skiier would not be much more than regular physical activity – however I know myself and even that small chance for me would put me off using the pass.

i did before i found out i was pregnant Embarassed i found out a month and a half later that i was pregnant (i was on the pill and figured i wasnt pregnant). nothing bad came of it. once your belly gets big i probably wouldn’t. ask your dr.’s opinion. normally they say “exercise the way you were before you got pregnant” but there’s a big fall (hard fall!) risk with it. you’re the expert though Smilei think people running into you would be my biggest deterrent.
