Background: Participation in snowboarding as a winter sport is comparable to alpine skiing concerning the demographics of the participants, risk of injury, and variation in types of injuries sustained. Purpose: To examine the types of snowboarding injuries and changes in injury patterns over time. We also sought to highlight important differences in injury patterns between snowboarders and alpine skiers as affected by age, experience, and sex. Study Design: Case control; Level of evidence, 3… Expand
Injury Patterns at a Large Western United States Ski Resort With and Without Snowboarders
TLDR
There was a small but statistically significant increase in the likelihood of injury with the addition of snowboarding to a large ski resort, and factors such as younger demographic, elevated risk-taking behavior, or increased mountain crowding are involved. Expand
Injuries in elite and recreational snowboarders
TLDR
Snowboarding continues to evolve as a sport, which includes a steady progression in the degree of difficulty of the manoeuvres conducted by athletes and an increase in the number of snowboarders attempting such manoeuvres. Expand
Injury patterns in recreational alpine skiing and snowboarding at a mountainside clinic.
TLDR
At this mountainside clinic, the most frequent ski injuries are to the knee and shoulder, regardless of skill level, and beginning snowboarders most frequently injure their wrists whereas shoulder injuries remain frequent at all skill levels. Expand
Injury trends in alpine skiing and a snowboarding over the decade 2008-09 to 2017-18.
TLDR
Snowsport injuries are relatively rare when compared to other sports, and skiers were most prone to knee injuries and snowboarders to wrist injuries, and emergency transport was proportionally needed more from advanced slopes/terrain. Expand
Types of injury from recreational snowboarding versus skiing: Single season-data from a Mountainside clinic in Dolomites
TLDR
This is a retrospective cohort study which analyzed data of patients presented at a mountainside clinic for a ski- or snowboard-related injury between 4th December 2016 and 17th April 2017 to compare the patterns of injury of skiers and snowboarders. Expand
Retrospective analysis of injury trends in recreational skiers and snowboarders in Erciyes Ski Centre
TLDR
The lower extremity injuries in skiers and the upper extremities injuries in snowboarders were more common with respect to body location of injuries and contusion was the most common injury type. Expand
Retrospective analysis of injury trends in recreational skiers and snowboarders in Erciyes Ski Centre
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate the important differences in overall rates and frequency of injury cases and injury characteristics between the recreational alpine skiers andExpand
Safety on the slopes: ski versus snowboard injuries in children treated at United States trauma centers.
TLDR
Different injury patterns between children participating in these sports treated at trauma centers in the United States can be used to tailor prevention efforts, but avoiding head injury and improving helmet use should be a priority for all children on the slopes. Expand
Injury patterns and risk factors for orthopaedic trauma from snowboarding and skiing: a national perspective
TLDR
Young adults, the elderly, and those using substances were shown to be at greater risk of increased injury severity and lack of helmet use. Expand
Trends of snowboarding-related fractures that presented to emergency departments in the United States, 2010 to 2016.
TLDR
It is found that fractures were the most common injuries, especially of the upper extremity, in snowboarding in the US, and the annual incidence of snowboarding-related fractures decreased by 23.1%. Expand

Snow sports injuries in Scotland: a case-control study
TLDR
The overall rate and pattern of injury are similar to those reported previously in comparable studies, and several factors are associated with an increased risk of injury and should be targeted in future injury prevention campaigns. Expand

TLDR
Except for lower extremity injuries, snowboarders have a higher rate of injuries than skiers, and collision-related injury rates have increased over time forSnowboarders. Expand

TLDR
Snowboarding is associated with a unique pattern of injuries, the knowledge of which could influence snowboarder education, accident prevention and equipment design and additional research is needed to understand better the types, causes and rates of injury associated with snowboarding. Expand
Spectrum of injuries from snowboarding.
TLDR
There exists a wide spectrum of injuries from snowboarding, ranging from common extremity injuries to potentially life-threatening nonorthopedic trauma, and the data suggest that aerial maneuvers are associated with increased risk of injury to the head, face, spine, and abdomen and that collisions areassociated with more severe injury. Expand
Differing injury patterns in snowboarding and alpine skiing.
TLDR
Snowboarders sustain a different pattern of injuries compared with skiers, and this has important implications for preventing accidents in the instruction of novices. Expand
Snowboarding and Ski Boarding Injuries in Niigata, Japan
TLDR
The injury rate in snowboarding decreased gradually, although it was still 2 times higher than that of alpine skiing, and injury prevention strategies should focus on jumps for snowboarders and ski boarders. Expand
Skiing and snowboarding injuries in the children and adolescents of Southern Alberta.
TLDR
The lower extremum in skiers and the upper extremity in snowboarders were most susceptible to injury and a cause for concern is the high proportion of head injuries reported for both male skier and snowboarder of younger age groups. Expand
Spinal injuries in snowboarders: risk of jumping as an integral part of snowboarding.
TLDR
Spinal injuries sustained while snowboarding are increasing considerably in incidence and are characterized as complex injuries, which must be educated young snowboarders of the risk of this sport to prevent these serious injuries. Expand
An analysis of skiing and snowboarding injuries on Utah slopes.
TLDR
Patients injured while skiing or snowboarding are predominantly men, and participants in both sports are at risk for sustaining major injuries, which differ and are dependent on the sport. Expand

PURPOSE To investigate injuries among children and adolescents who participate in downhill sports. METHODS We collected trauma registry data (January 1999-May 2006) from a level 1 pediatric traumaExpand
