Roll out of the impact.

Does falling on ice hurt?

Professional and competitive skaters fall a lot,but they seldom get hurt. “Bad falls” are theones that can cause an ice skater immense pain andsometimes even destroy careers; these are usually unforeseen. Whenyou bend your knees, the body moves closer to the ice and ifyou still fall, it is not too high.

Does falling in snow hurt?

Typically though, falling into powder doesn'thurt, especially if you are moving across it. Injuries occurmore from twisting a knee due to a ski sinking into the snowfaster than you can make it turn. But falling into powder ismore of an “oomph” feeling than painful.
