See Blogorelli? It Wasn't Just You...

Although maybe you were one of the folks included in this study (ps: Mom, please don't read this):

Snowboarding Tops Most Dangerous Outdoor Sports List

Next powder day, bring your first aid kit: snowboarding ranks as the riskiest outdoor sport, according to a new C.D.C. report. The study, which tracked injuries at 63 major hospitals countrywide during 2004 and 2005, showed that snowboarding accounted for a full 25.5 percent of all injuries in the outdoor activities category. Sledding came next, with 10.8 percent of the injuries, followed by hiking, with 6.3 percent.

Though skiing was found to be considerably less dangerous than snowboarding, nearly 65 percent of 5,609 sample cases cited in the study were results of snow-related activities.
