With Mt. Baker, Stevens Pass and Crystal Mountain ski areas all in our backyard, there are plenty of opportunities to sustain a personal injury while skiing or snowboarding.

Types of Accidents

Winter conditions and skier abilities are unpredictable and as such, there are many ways to sustain a serious injury while skiing or snowboarding. Snowboarding alone has been attributed to result in more accidents than any other winter related sport. A few common accidents include:

  • Colliding with another skier or boarder
  • Crashing into the lift riblets
  • Falling from a cliff
  • Getting caught up in an avalanche
  • Equipment failure

Anyone who has ever been on the slopes has certainly been embarrassed by a bad fall. But have no doubt, serious injury can result.

Types of Injuries

  • Brain trauma
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Paralysis
