Winter sports can be good exercise for you if you're In good condition. According to the Iown State Department of Health, almost nil winter sports accidents are caused by lack of physical condition, lack of training, negligence and Just plain recklessness. Skiing, sledding and skating are all responsible for accidents each year. Although .the total number of ski Injuries has risen sharply, it has not risen in proportion to the growing number of skiers. The risk of injury has been reduced by safer slopes, better instruction and improved equipment, ' Most ski accidents could be avoided if skiers would: exorcise to condition muscles before a skiing holiday, warm up immediately before going out on the slopes, avoid major runs when tired, use modern safety-release bindings, take lessons as a beginner, leave the trail when a stop is necessary, stop a reasonable distance from the line at a tow or lift, never ski alone, stay out of closed areas and be twice as careful when the temperature changes. Youngsters often can have an accident with a toboggan or sled. Here the cause usually is just plain recklessness. If children are cautioned that accidents can be serious, and if they have a safe place to play, many i n i„.. eliminated. y n)Ur '«l Children should lowed to slide on a «, Tl " ul uct-n mocked in i.Z't hill leading ^.N roads a car c;m't stop itjl denly comes into its palli| The blggesl danger hA ting is thin ice.
