Abstract

Risk management theory suggests that a proactive approach rather than a reactive approach is more effective for managing risks. In the context of snowsports this would mean that a whole-of-industry approach to snowsport injury prevention would range from the images in brochures, the organizations in the industry through to the equipment and people (staff and participants) involved in the industry. Telemark skiing has experienced a resurgence in interest, after 100 years of existence, correlating with changes in the availability and design of telemarking equipment. This paper will build on insights from a survey of Australian telemark skiers through a review of literature from occupational health and safety, risk management for outdoor pursuits, and organizational culture to reflect upon the need for a wholistic and strategic research agenda to aid in the reduction of snowsport injuries.
