The dangers of skiing & snowboarding for sports stars from other sports are clearly visible, in fact I once had the honour of having Formula One star Jensen Button as a travelling guest on the Snow Train, his race team had banned him from skiing but he was going to cross country ski for cardo work.
But perhaps these rules don't work for individual sport stars - it has just been reported that top golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez has recently broke his leg while skiing in Sierra Nevada.
Jimenez said of the accident "I was going down a hill and lost control briefly and when I fell it was very sore. I knew immediately I had broken something." The verdict after an X-ray was a broken tibia, just below the right knee - ouch!! SnowVole wishes Miguel a very swift recovery.
