Welcome to the International Society for Skiing Safety

The International Society for Skiing Safety is a global, multidisciplinary institution that advances safety issues and injury care in snow sports through education, research and development in all related fields. Members include ski area physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, experts in biomechanics and engineering, epidemiologists, ski patrollers and snow sports manufacturers from all over the world. The ISSS holds an international research symposium every two years and its members are at the forefront of new developments in snow sports safety.
