Ski preparation to avoid injury

It’s never too early to prepare for a ski holiday.

“Simple preparation both before your holiday and on the slopes each day can reduce your chance of injury and help you to get the most out of your time skiing.”

Knee Specialist Professor Adrian Wilson regularly treats skiers from all over the world and is a regular visitor the Alps himself. Here he gives expert advice for avoiding injury when you next hit the slopes.

How likely am I to injure myself skiing?

Never let the fear of an injury put you off skiing. It’s a fantastic sport and the likelihood of injuring yourself is really small, less than 1%, which is a lot less than football or rugby. However as the immediate impact of a ski injury can be quite serious and is likely to be sustained abroad, it has the potential to be more disruptive, least of all in often cutting short your holiday.
