Freestyle skiing

Do you know the most common injuries in freeskiing?

If you can avoid getting injured, you can just have fun with your friends and learn new tricks!

Freeskiing is a sport that is developing constantly. This leads to jumps and tricks becoming more difficult. Falls are the most common cause of injuries.

Unbalanced landings, landing too hard after a jump and other elements cause strain to the knees, hips and back. The knees are particularly vulnerable to injury. If a skier lands on an outstretched arm, they can fracture in the wrist or the carpus. Sprained wrists and fingers are also common, especially with beginners.
