It might be worth finding somewhere to practice breakfalling - your local Judo, Jitsu or Aikido dojo might be able to help.

    Davids comment is quite a good one in both skiing and boarding some of the most comman injuries from falls are injuries to the wrist. Its natural reaction to put your arm out to cushion the fall. Unfortunately this can lead to damage of the wrist. Something like judo/ju-jitsu will teach you how to fall safetly as well as learning a martial art.

    I use to do ju-jitsu and in all the years of skiing my instinct is to breakfall and I've never had an arm/shoulder/wrist injury

    Aikido's better, of course. Cue flame war.
