Skiing has become the latest fashionable sport taken up by the Chinese middle class, since China won the bid on hosting the twenty-twenty-two Winter Olympic Games. The enthusiasm has been shadowed by two deadly ski accidents this month. Is skiing a dangerous sport? What do we need to know before going down the slope?

The first time I skied was when I was 56. Came down the practice slope, fell and twisted my knee. Was laid up for three weeks. That's the last time I skied.

Skiing is great fun, I did a lot of it in my younger years, both downhill and cross country. However, you can easily break bones, twist knees and ankles and rip tendons clean off the bone if you don't know what you're doing.  Serious injuries are frequent, especially with downhill skiers.

Death is always watching the ski slopes, taking a perverse pleasure in watching people launch themselves in to trees, buildings and machinery for example.

Anyone who skis should go through proper instruction and not attempt slopes or tricks that are beyond their ability.
