This.Wrong! Walking and skiing are entirely different! I've limped from the car to the lifts many times only to have a killer day on the slopes. Admittedly none of those were knee issues but they were pretty significant: hip arthritis, slipped disc, and just today I skied with a pulled hamstring.
Every single time I've been anxious that it would be impossible to ski, but have found over and over again that it's easier to ski than to walk. And in most cases the walk back to the car has been a whole lot better, limp resolved. I.e. skiing = therapy.
So take some advil and make sure you've warmed up and stretched and you'll have a great time.
(Granted there are times when you just shouldn't go due to possible serious consequences, but this does not sound like on of those times.)
I just sprinkle it into random stuff that I eat. The kind that is in the spice rack at Whole Foods.

Your point is well taken that you should listen to your body, but I would just like to point out there is a difference between NSAIDs which obviously are anti inflammatories vs analgesics which are pain relievers only.Oh, and I was going to add, if wearing a brace eliminates pain, I think that’s good to go too. Just don’t mask pain with medication, don’t mask the message your body is sending you.
