I think I'm somewhere in the middle. I took a couple of good falls (think I might have cracked a rib on one of them) but mostly it was more embarrassing and irritating than crippling. Yeah, I've been sore at the end of the day (and the next day) but I've been doing various sports (and weight-lifting) all my life so that just seems normal.
The worst injuries I've had were last season. I got an abdominal pull trying to dig myself out on a deep deep pow day, and a tailbone injury from getting knocked over coming off the lift.
