Best Answer

It really depends on whether your talking about in the Olympics or referring to Nordic skiing as cross country skiing.

Nordic events

Ski jumping: is quite dangerous, but due to the steepness of the landing area, is not as dangerous as you might think.

Cross country skiing: carries very little dangers.

Combined event: carries the same dangers above.

Alpine events such as the slalom, downhill event, super giant slalom ect......

Often feature high speed crashes, this is very likely to injure any skier, so i would say that alpine skiing is more dangerous.
