Five Tips to Reduce Your Risk of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

  • Wear a helmet
  • Keep your eyes up and be aware of your surroundings
  • Don’t participate in winter sports in intoxicated or overly tired
  • Know your limits and when it’s time to sit out
  • Take frequent rest breaks

Which Tip is Most Important?

Knowing your limits is the most important tip in our opinion. Statistically, traumatic brain injuries haven’t decreased in number over the last ten years even though more people than ever are wearing helmets.

Researches suggest that there is a high-energy, high-risk snowboard and skiing culture out there that is being marketed. Coupled with increased awareness of TBI, and the fact that resorts are building terrain parks, jump cliffs, and half-pipes that didn’t exist in the past, and statistics demonstrate that TBI rates haven’t changed even with increased helmet use.

It seems the younger generations think that skiing is about taking more risks...risks that only highly trained professional skiers and snowboarders should be taking.

For these reasons, we highly recommend that you know your limits and don’t take unnecessary risks.
