There is some variation in the absolute injury rate seen between different studies. This usually relates to the individual design of the study. Those that rely on selfreported injuries not surprisingly tend to result in higher injury rates as individuals are likely to report every single minor injury that they sustain. In contrast, at the other end of the scale, hospital-based studies tend to see a smaller percentage of all 45 3 Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding Injuries injuries sustained and therefore report a lower rate [24].
