Head injuries in football and hockey dominate the discussion of traumatic brain injury these days. However, skiing and snowboarding should have their place in that discussion as well. Don’t be fooled by the perception that snow is soft and therefore cannot cause a head injury. First, snow on slopes is often packed down, and therefore harder. In addition, obstacles such as trees, snow blowers, ski lift foundations, and other skiers going at a high rate of speed are all potential causes of traumatic brain injury. For that reason, please wear a helmet, and parents, absolutely do not let your kids on the slopes without a helmet.
