How can I support my previously broken wrist whilst skiing?

I broke my wrist quite badly by falling heavily about 6 months ago and have had surgery to fix it. The scarring can be quite tender. I am about to enjoy a ski trip and am worried about falling or landing on my wrist and causing pain in an already vulnerable joint. Is there anything I can do to help inflammation? Are there any other options for aprés ski other than an unsightly support?
