Each year, skiing and snowboarding activities contribute to the total number of sports-related injuries. The purpose of this study was to identify exercises and training strategies suggested to prevent alpine skiing and snowboarding injuries in recreational participants.

Results indicated that there is value in using a multifaceted approach for preventing injuries.

In addition to this, it was reported that those partaking in skiing and snowboarding activities need to engage in appropriate levels of strength, endurance, and conditioning exercises to ensure an adequate control of alpine manoeuvers.
