An analysis is presented of 1763 consecutive injuries that occurred in the Ybrig region in Switzerland, a ski resort, during the 1976-1982 ski seasons. The study included all persons injured while skiing and treated at the emergency care facility at the base of the Ybrig region. Fractures were the most frequent injury. Over the years, a decrease in the total number of injuries was noticed. The severity of the injuries was increased. More attention should be paid to the individual preparation of the skier.
