The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter was vacationing in Utah with his family when the injuries occurred, his assistant confirmed in an e-mail to The AP.
The details of the injuries or how he received them have not been reported.
Doctors treated Taylor with a splint so that he could continue skiing.
The 'Fire and Rain' singer called the injuries "nothing" considering all the problems in the world.
Taylor was among the artists selected to receive the National Medal of Arts at the White House earlier this month.
