Making sure you are safe on the slopes is key when it comes to skiing. It’s important to remember a few key rules whilst on the slopes:
- Snowboarders and skiers turn differently. Snowboarders tend to turn sharper, especially when making a heel edge turn, make sure you are keeping an eye out for snowboarders on the slopes.
- Boundary limits are set for a reason, you’re taking safety into your own hands if you are thinking of going off course. Sign posts should keep you within the boundaries.
- Beginner? We advise taking lessons to get you going on the slopes. You’ll still have time to ski with your friends after the lessons are complete.
- Know your limits, if you’re new to skiing or a little rusty make sure you’re comfortable with the level of run before moving up.
