It's a two piece rock band with a focus on analog vintage gear. It's picked up a bit of steam in the past 6 months or so, but still has a long way to go...

A few of us have seen you ski. Would you be taking any more risk than in the streets of NYC? Not saying you should take time off but a few turns while touringSLC, Santa Fe, and Denver/Boulder
would not seem unreasonable.
Remember that all of those cities will be visited for just one night. Tours are hard and off days tend not to be days of leisure, but days of recuperation, often they are filled with outside obligations such as interviews(press/radio), maintenance(instruments/van), etc... The american west is widely regarded as one of the most difficult touring areas in the world as many of the markets are 6+ hours from each other. With a tight budget as it is, and long distances combined with tough touring schedules (often 9 shows for every 10 days), an off day dedicated to skiing will be a tough sell to my label, my band mate, and manager. Besides, the tour van is crowded and packed with gear and there will be absolutely no room whatsoever for boots or skis. Skiing with rental gear doesn't seem that appetizing.
As far as injury, I would imagine that skiing is a bit more dangerous than walking on NYC sidewalks. It sucks not being able to ski for the time being but I'll get my days back some point in the future.
