This paper analyzes methods for reducing skiing injuries. The methods include: (a) legislation requiring safer trail construction and maintenance, (b) improving the current trail rating system, and (c) a mobile application informing users about trail hazards. As will be explained, the most practical method with the most potential for reducing skiing injuries was determined to be the mobile application. A mobile application will, at minimal cost, enable the provision of real-time information to skiers and snowboarders.
