Skiing and snowboarding are great ways to spend time outdoors during the winter months. As with all sports, injuries are a risk when you ski or snowboard.
Most ski and snowboarding injuries occur during a fall or crash, so it is highly recommended that you wear a helmet designed for skiing and snowboarding.
Do not ski or snowboard alone and adhere to all trail rules and boundaries.
