Handy Hint

When going skiing or snowboarding for the day make sure you inform family or friends of your location, where you intend to spend the day and when you plan to return. Although it may be cold, sun refl ects off the snow making sunburn a real danger. Always remember to take sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. Keep informed as to the weather conditions and make sure you listen to the snow report before you go out. Taking your mobile phone is also a good idea. To avoid injury, know your ability and make sure you are always in control and able to stop and avoid other people and objects. It is a good idea to take lessons to improve, a lesson every 5th day will help you progress. Most importantly, never ski alone.
