Slalom skiing and snow skiing post bunion surgery

Hoping to find some skiers out there that can share their experiences post-bunionectomy! I’m most concerned about slalom skiing since I need to bend my foot, particularly on the pull-up. Two surgeons have suggested lapidus fusion, which fuses the first tarsometatarsal (TMT) joint roughly mid-foot. A third surgeon has suggested opening wedge osteotomy which appears to leave that joint mobile (but may have other complications).
