The Times with an X-ray gallery of common ski injuries

The winter is almost over but The Times of UK has just published an X-ray gallery of common ski injuries:

"If you are a skier, then the knee is the most likely injury on the slopes. And if you're a boarder? Do take care of your wrists, the most vulnerable to damage.

For skiers, the body parts most likely to be injured are the knee (32% of all ski injuries), head/face (13.7%), shoulder (9.1%), lower leg (7.6%), wrist (5.4%) and thumb (4.9%)"
