No one wants to risk injury especially the self employed whose income depends on being fit but it’s important to get the risk in perspective. Most skiers have been skiing for years without injury and if you ask them how many injuries they see being loaded onto the aircraft the answer is usually none at all.
Of course it helps if you take proper care. Exercise a bit before you travel and make sure you go to a good ski school who will take things gently and always ski with friends,never alone.
Singlesport guests are great at looking out for each other but do make sure you know the contact details for your accommodation and carry your insurance details, then hope you never need them!
