All snow sports come with some level of risk so it’s important you keep safety in mind when heading off on your next ski adventure! With changing weather conditions, snow-covered landscapes and differing levels of skiing and snowboarding ability sharing the slopes, accidents can happen.

What you need to know to stay safe in the snow:

Dress appropriately
Layered clothing is the best way to keep warm in cold weather. Remember that most of your body heat leaves through your head, so always wear a hat or beanie. Wear mittens – mittens are better than gloves at keeping hands warm since the fingers are together in one ‘pocket’.

Protect your skin and eyes

Always wear sunscreen when you’re in the snow. The snow reflects the sun in the same way water does so a whole day with your nose out can be devastating for the skin. The same reason goes for protecting your eyes – even if it does not feel like you are being blinded, the sun rays reflecting off the glittery snow may also burn your cornea.

Wear a helmet

When you are falling, you are unlikely to be able to influence how you will fall or where you will land - so it is recommended that the less experienced skier wear a helmet while skiing. Wearing a helmet is especially essential for children.

 
Keep snacks at hand

Always carry something to drink and snack on when you are out for a day’s adventure. Dehydration and blood sugar deficiency come quickly and are not always easy to recognise when you are exercising in nature. Regular nibbling and sipping is recommended.
