Default Dangers of Freestyle Skiing?

Are the dangers of injury associated with freestyle skiing overstated or is there a certain sense of accuracy to the possible dangers?

well u do need a sence of wat ur doing

dont think u can just pop off a jump and pull a back 360

injurys can vary depends on what ur doing

i have experienced everyhting from concusions to bruised tail bone (thats very common and it hurts) ive also screwed over my hands but it all depends on what ur doing

more than likely if its harder u can get more hurt doing it but then agian i have seem kids break limbs just jumping

but to answer ur question yes there are injurys some serious and some u shake off by the end of the day

Actually getting accidents with skiing
depends on what you are doing. If you
are extra careful in skiing, then you
can avoid yourself from any dangers.

Skiing is a dangerous sport any way you look at it. If possible, wear protective gear and always ride with a buddy.

If you ride hard...always expect the unexpected.

Like any kind of skiing or riding, safe freestyle requires sensible progression and Smart Style.

1) Look Before you Leap....scope out the features before hitting them.

2) Respect Gets Respect....take your turn, call your drop and clear the features.

3) Easy Style it.... Start small and work you way up to bigger things.

Skiing is such a dangers sport but can be reduced by using quality affordable
skiing gears thats the most important thing,the second thing is that you need to have good experience don't go to those dangerous places or try dangerous styles and you are a nob in skiing .with this simple steeps you can go and ski now but if you feel not to follow the rest of the steps then follow use the best
skiing gears please.
