Skiiing/Snowboarding on Accutane

I would buy a helmet that would cover your entire face. Since your skin can get damaged easier, protecting your face entirely would be the best option

Be fit, flexible, and have good balance.

I'd consider a knee brace for protecting the ACL (see what football players wear), etc, particularly if you're not fit.

Exercise the upper and lower legs so that the muscles will help keep the ligaments in the knee from tearing so easily.

If you get a knee or other severe enough injury while on Accutane, be prepared to stop taking Accutane.

I would discourage it. My derm said (and I think I read the same thing) that if you break a bone while on accutane, it dramatically affects the way your bones heal.
