Skiing ACL injuries to Snowboarding
How much more often do skiers have knee and acl injuries compared to snowboarders? I was just curious...

More often /thread
You can't just put red and blue fliters on your gopro and get 3d footage... eheath
Abazaba, you my only friend.
the only injury my boarder friends have come across is broken ankles.
And wrists. Many, many wrists.
You realize that it's pretty common for straight men to fuck each other right? Sounds pretty steezy.~Session
i heard that some skier broke his ankles, i think tried a switch 9 over Chads Gap broke

my snowboarder friend cased a 40 footer and tore his ACL and Meniscus, (he no longer snowboards) none of my skier friends have had any troubles with their knees. Outside of my friends I always hear of skiers blowing out their knees. Never heard of a snowboarder, but i don't really follow snowboarding so if it did happen, i wouldn't know.
I ski because it's fun. period.
nah that was fake
This ones for satan!

Independent feet movement. Thats all.
You can do a lot to reduce the risk of ACL tears. The unfortunate fact is that many people have a short IT band, and compromised hip range of motion, resulting in their feet naturally pointing out (duck footed) and their knees rolling to the inside when they squat. This puts a lot of tension on the ACL and compromises it. boots like Fischer's SOMA tech and Nordica's whatever they call it, exacerbate this problem.
Focusing on proper stance, lengthening and softening your IT band, improving hip range of motion will help reduce your likely hood of an ACL tear.
