<p>Snow sports do offer a low-impact form of exercise, provided you actually know what you're doing. If you're a newbie that doesn't know how to ski, the number of times that you end up falling down can lead to a whole lot of accidents - not to mention possible injuries. </p>
<p>I actually just did a post on the most common injuries suffered during snow sports:</p>
<p>You'll realize that it's not really as safe as you might think, so it's definitely worth staying indoors at a gym for the winter if you're worried about your knees.</p>

Cross Country skiing is awesome winter exercise that is easy on your knees. No pounding and you can do it anywhere that you have a layer of snow. Even works in urban parks if you are OK with the occasional person staring at you and the odd dog chasing you.

I, unlike my quadruped counterpart, do not need to put on extra layers for the winter. I guess I will consider alternatives as I head to the slopes. Anyone have any suggestions?[/p]
