Skiing vs Snowboarding: Which is More Dangerous?

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW TO WIN YOUR NEXT APRES ARGUMENT

Our sister site Mpora has produced this graphic guide to the dangers of snowboarding vs. skiing, and guess what? Skiing comes out as more dangerous.

Well, sort-of. You’re more likely to get injured shredding (but that’s blatantly cos it’s all about getting rad innit?) and anyway, it’s much less likely to be serious or fatal apparently. Anyway, have a look at the stats for yourself and feel free to quote them as selectively as possible next time you get into an apres argument with a two-planker.
