Early Season Hazards for Skiers and Snowboarders

Dec. 5th 2011

There’s nothing like the buildup of the coming ski season. The hope for a deep snowpack, lots of powder, and distant peaks to climb and ski, readily pulse through our brain’s synapses. In some ways the anticipation of turns is reward in itself. The prep of getting back into shape, reorganizing gear, waxing skis, obtaining new equipment, all these aspects of preparing for the ski season are the irreducible part of being a skier. So, it’s a total bummer when we get injured in early season because we are too amped about getting onto the snow that we forget how early season hazards can wreak havoc on our equipment and our bodies.
