I’m a 77year old recreational skier. The last few years I suffer total muscle fatigue after first half day of skiing at Mammoth. No breathing problems. I’m allergic to diamox. Tried two different steroids prescribed by doctor. Not much help.   Last trip used cbd. Took it real easy but on third day at  10:30 am lost all strength in legs arms and shoulders. Could not make a turn. Had to snow plow down with 8year olds blowing past.
Any thoughts? Not yet ready to give up skiing.

Have you seen a neurologist? This does not sound like an altitude issue. Some neuromuscular conditions, such as myasthenia gravis, are aggravated by cold
