    To many, the sport of skiing is considered risky. The New Zealand ski injury statistics compare favorably with the international figures, except for the beginner tourist type fields. The incidence of upper limb and head injuries is increasing while the incidence of fractures of the tibia are continuing to decline. It is the beginner to intermediate skier, who has skied for fewer than three days that season; who has not had ski lessons; who has not tested his ski bindings, who will be injured before he had skied for more than three hours. It is this group that needs assistance if the incidence of ski injuries is to be reduced.
