Top 5 Skiing & Snowboarding Injuries

Skiing & Snowboarding Injuries Introduction

Select an injury location on the skier or snowboarder

For every 1000 people skiing and snowboarding on the slopes there are typically two or three injuries per day that require medical treatment. The individual risk of injury has been calculated as one injury per 300 days of skiing and snowboarding.

Skiers and snowboarders under the age of 18 have an incidence of injury that is three times that of over 18's. As in other sports, the incidence of injury is slightly higher in women than in men, although injuries in men tend to be more severe.

Most skiing and snowboarding injuries affect the lower limbs (primarily knee injuries), although the incidence of upper limb injury, particularly wrist and thumb injury is increasing due to the growth in popularity of snowboarding.

In order to help you stay injury free and enjoy your skiing or snowboarding trip to the full, we've highlighted the five most common injuries in skiing and snowboarding. We've also added practical advice on what you can do to prevent these injuries as well as information about the latest treatment methods, should you be unlucky enough to get injured.
