Although many technological devices and solutions to enhance the skiing experience are now available for skiers, skiing sometimes could turn to be potentially dangerous. The speed of movement, environment unpredictability, and variable weather conditions, among others, can contribute to some of the most common skiing injuries that skiers incur. In this paper, we conduct an interface prototype evaluation of a ski injury registration system architecture that is already developed. This system will improve the communication from the ski resort to the medical center, in case an injury has occurred. The results of the interface evaluation indicate that the ski patrollers showed very positive attitude and experience with this prototype. Furthermore, the post-task and SUS (System Usability Scale) question results showed very high score for all participants, indicating that locating the body parts and the right injury was very easy using the interface.
