Security has top priority! To enjoy an untroubled ski holiday there are a number of things to consider, from thorough preparations to right behaviour on the slopes. SnowTrex has listed the top 10 tips for a safe ski holiday.
1. Preparation: Thanks' to a detailed packing list you will not forget anything, double-check your equipment and be well- prepared before you leave. 2. Fitness and self-assessment: Train your personal stamina beforehand and warm up thoroughly before hitting the slopes - and then be considerate of other riders. 3. FIS piste rules: These 10 golden rules should be known to all riders on the slopes! 4. Helmet obligation: Today a ski helmet is part of the general equipment stock, just like goggles and ski poles. 5. Secure equipment: Almost every fifth accident is due to failure in equipment. Up-to-date equipment and good service ensure a safe descent. 6. Body protection: For freestylers and freeriders protectors for the back, hands and joints should always be a part of the holiday. 7. Insurance: Be prepared against illness, breakage or theft - and enjoy your holiday all the more. 8. Alcohol consumption: Drunk on the piste? Absolutely No! 9. Piste emergency number: 140, 118, 15 - which number for which country? 10. Safe on the go: Avalanche risk, avalanche equipment, respect for nature - what else?
