Dear Fitness Expert,
I just recently found out I'm pregnant. My family has been planning a Christmas vaction trip to Colorado to go skiing. Can I ski? I will be 8/9 weeks pregnant. I'm a very cautious skier on blues. Could I do easy green slopes or is it to dangerous? Do you have to fall hard to miscarry? We usually ski twice a year for a week. I have been running the past 8 months -- 12 miles a week and aerobics the past 2 years.
