It will be too soon. I just came back from a three-day weekend skiing at Lake Tahoe. I hadn't been skiing in six years, and I just spent the last three days following around a guy who was captain of his high school ski team. Right now I'm still in that calm before the soreness storm, but tomorrow I expect to be completely unable to move. It was worth it, though.
This trip was my first ski trip to Tahoe. I had previously only skied in Denver. I found Tahoe to be smaller in every way. Smaller resorts, smaller lines, less traffic. It didn't quite have the full-on majesty that the Rockies have, but that was well balanced by easier access and a more pleasant experience. Granted it was a really bad snow weekend, and it was also Super Bowl weekend, so the crowds were probably abnormally low, but I was very happy with Tahoe. I'd gladly go back again. After I heal.
