Injuries sustained by skiing are steadily increasing because the number of skiers is rising. The estimated accident frequency varies between 4 and 7 accidents per 1000 skiers per day. The injury rate of women is higher than the one of men, skiers under 20 years make up the highest share of injuries. Generally speaking, experienced skiers injure themselves more rarely, but more seriously, and untrained skiers have more accidents than trained skiers. Consequently, the lack of experience is decisive for the accident frequency. But a good state of health is of central importance because it improves strength, endurance and reactivity. You become tired later, can avoid sudden falls and simple mistakes when tilting the ski can be controlled better. Moreover, collisions can be avoided by faster reactions and, in case of a fall, a strong musculature can avoid fractures. Therefore, a good condition should be built up as preparation for the skiing holiday.
