Abstract

With the increasing concern about the long-term effects of concussive and sub-concussive head accelerations in sport, this research applies two technologies initially developed for team-based sports to snowsports to understand the characteristics of snowsport head acceleration. Results indicate that pediatric snowsports participants regularly achieved speeds over 23 km/h; snowsport head accelerations are rare and that when they do occur they are generally of low magnitude; and those most at risk were make snowboarders
