I can identify with the article written regarding the dangers of lacerations having to do with ski racing/training. I was involved in a serious crash at Stoneham Quebec where I clipped a GS gate causing my right ski to launch with me spiraling into the air and landing with the ski close to my body(chest) and cutting the peak of my helmet along with my chin. The patrollers wished me over to the patrol hut where a little French girl cleaned the blood off my face and a doctor placed 5 stitches on my chin. I totally agree with the article emphasizing the number of lacerations being a common occurrence and need to be addressed as a safety protocol. Thank you.
