It is fairly common to get injured when skiing and most of these injuries are related to legs or knees. There are many reasons why or how an individual can get hurt during skiing. While some of these injuries occur when people fail to land correctly when skiing, some occur due to lack of equipment or proper preparation. Listed below are some measures you should take so that occurrence and severity of leg and knee injuries can be significantly lowered.

Conditioning routine
It is necessary to put your body through a rigorous training routine, so that your body is able to withstand any injuries that occur as a result of skiing.In order to ski well it is necessary that your body is strong and this can be achieved by cycling, running or power walking.

Once your core and leg muscles are strong, it becomes easier for you to manoeuvre your body efficiently to prevent severe injuries. By practicing Yoga or stretching well, you lower the chances of a pulled muscle and also gain a much more balanced body. 

Warm up
All sports and physically strenuous activity should begin with warm-up, or stretching. People who do not stretch well might suffer from cramped muscles, which can lead to other serious accidents. Once you have put your ski all in one suit on, you should stretch properly, so that all muscles of your body are prepared for the strenuous activity. 

Right equipment
If you do not have a complete set of equipment in your size, it is better not to ski as you might hurt yourself, even by wearing bigger or smaller shoes. All in one ski suit mens or women’s can be purchased or rented along with all other equipment in the right size, so that you do not get injured trying to adjust to a different size, one which you are not used to.

Types of skiing
There are several types of skiing and it is better to stick to the type you know especially on a snow-covered slope. If it is your first-time skiing, it is best to stick to what you know rather than take unnecessary risks.

Conclusion 
If you are unable to purchase a complete set of equipment, ski resorts often have outlets, where you can easily rent equipment or protective gear. If you are unable to find an outfit in your size, it is better to not ski, rather than hurt yourself while going down a slope at a very high speed.
