So I am just about to start skiing again after stuffing my ankle at the 5 ball. Ended up with a major sprain and some bone that was torn off the end my Fibula. I spent 4 weeks in a walking boot and now I am a week and a half into rehab. I think this week I will be good to go for skiing. I was wondering if many of you that have had ankle injuries use tape or an ankle brace when you ski. Are there other ways to protect your ankle?
