First of all, I think you should call his doctor and/or go with him to the doctor and get a more professional opinion. January is still 4 months away so it depends on the kind of injury he has and how bad it is. (Of course, that also depends on how diligent your man is with recovery and–no offense–it doesn’t seem like he likes to take it easy!)

If the doctor is unsure about him being ready by Jan., personally, I wouldn’t recommend keeping the reservations unless you are prepared that might mean you skiing by yourself. If Gore Mtn. has a lot of other stuff to do, then maybe that’s okay because you can turn it into a winter hideaway, but my guy would be pretty unhappy in a ski area if he couldn’t ski. You could also look into xcountry skiing, which is generally recommended for those with knee problems, but you know, xcountry is NOT downhill. In other words, it’s kind of a gamble that he’ll be okay and you lose big if he’s not.

You can always “table” the wedding gift for spring skiing or skiing next year. I’m sure he’d understand these are fluke circumstances.

If you JUST mailed the deposit, is there any way you can call the company and ask for it back? Maybe if you explain his injury and that it is a wedding gift they’ll take pity on you? Might be a long shot but sometimes people surprise you.

I would say cancel the trip or still take the trip but make it a romantic winter get away.  I think you should count skiing as out.  Even if he doesn’t need surgery, he will still probably be sore and the ligaments in his knee very loose and weak so skiing could also very easily damage it again.

Does your suite have a jacuzzi?  I would say you could go, go sledding, tubing, tobogganing, sip hot chocolate, go for hikes & sit in the jacuzzi tub!  I can’t ski (BAD knees), so that’s pretty much what I would be doing on a similar trip!  I think my hubby and his friends want to do a ski trip in Vermont this winter & I won’t be doing any skiing!

Can you call and see if they can keep the deposit and hold the date for next year?  Is that possible?

I wouldn’t cancel anything yet.  This past February I hurt my knee while running a half marathon.  It was swollen and really painful to walk on and after icing and elevating for a week wasn’t gettitng any better so I went to the doctor.  After x-rays and an MRI it was determined that I hadn’t actually hurt anything and my knee was just really irritated and swollen (I needed insoles for my running shoes b/c the way I land was putting excess pressure on my knee).  I went skiing 2 months later in Utah without problem.

So basically what I’m saying is that unless he really does need surgery, odds are he’ll be completely fine to ski in 4 months.  And since the doctor hasn’t said anything about surgery, I wouldn’t jump to any conclusions yet.
