Winter weather is upon us and it is a good time to go out and hit the ski slopes. Many people enjoy the sport of downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing when the winter weather brings snow to the region. But when you are out on the slopes enjoying winter sports, other people can ruin your good time, by intruding on your space and causing a serious accident.

People Who Ski Go onto the Mountain with Varying Degrees of Expertise, Which Can Cause a Serious Accident

Just because someone is on the ski slope with you as you are skiing, does not mean that the other person knows how to ski safely to avoid a serious accident on the slopes. Many people ski on ski slopes after only one lesson, or have never taken a lesson at all. These individuals rent skis and go skiing after only having watched it on television, usually with disastrous results. You can be seriously injured by an inexperienced skier on a ski slope, even though you yourself are an excellent skier.

Broken Bones and Traumatic Brain Injuries Are Common Injuries When Someone Skies into You at a Ski Slope

If you are enjoying a day of downhill skiing and are hit by another amateur skier, you can sustain a serious and even life-threatening injury as a result of that collision. If another skier hits you or runs into you on the ski slope, you can have a serious personal injury, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury 
  • Broken bones
  • Broken hips
  • Broken spine
  • Fractures of spine
  • Concussion
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Hand injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Contusions
  • Sprains and strains
  • Cartilage injury
  • Joint sprain
  • Muscle tears
  • Shoulder injury
  • Neck fracture
  • Broken facial bones
  • Broken teeth

It is difficult for someone minding his or her own business to predict when another person who is unused to being on skis will plow into that individual – but it happens on a daily basis. People who ski well are constantly plagued by injuries from other skiers who have no business being on skis, and who should not be on ski slopes without at least an introductory lesson on ski etiquette and how to safely walk, ski and stop on a pair of slippery skis. 

Poor Weather Conditions Can Make Amateur Skiers at Risk of Injuring Others on the Ski Slopes

If you are skiing on the slopes and there are poor weather conditions, an amateur skier can cause damage and wreck-havoc to others by ignoring the conditions of the weather. For example, if you experience weather on the slopes that are less than ideal conditions for skiing, you can be seriously injured by other less skilled skiers in:

  • Bad weather
  • Blizzard conditions
  • Icy surfaces
  • Inattentiveness of a new skier
