According to a 2012 study by The American Journal of Sports Medicine (January 20, 2012), wrist injuries account for 28% of all snowboard injuries and only 3% of skiing injuries, while ACL injuries compose less than 2% of all snowboard injuries and 17% of skiing injuries. The study found the highest rate of injury among young, inexperienced, female snowboarders.
