Ski And Snowboard Safety Tips

As skiers who enjoy being active and enjoying the outdoors, we understand the importance of staying safe while on the slopes. In addition to seeking adequate instruction and taking time to practice before setting off, here are a few safety tips for skiing:

  1. Take care to learn the rules of the slopes before skiing.
  2. Move cautiously and carefully when skiing in heavily populated areas.
  3. Be aware of merging trails and learn to properly yield to other skiers.
  4. Pay close attention to all trail signs.
  5. Use the right equipment.

Disregarding ski safety rules and being reckless can lead to accidents that result in serious, if not life-threatening, injuries and damage. Remembering the dangers of skiing can help keep you and other skiers safe while enjoying fresh powder and heading down the slopes.
