Safe Skiing

February 19th, 2012 posted by admin

There is magic in skiing. Which is why this is one sport that most people come back to again and again. Once you try it, you are well and properly hooked. It could be the image of the more experienced skiers whizz downhill, seemingly poised for take-off. Or those pictures of skiers froze in motion against a dazzlingly white landscape. Whatever be the reason, most skiing changing room benches are replete with talk of some spectacular run or the other. However, as with all sports that involve speed, certain precautions need to be adhered to at all times.

However tempting the desire to start skiing, spend some time in getting to know the terrain. Check if it is an extreme or freestyle landscape. The former should be attempted by the experts only as there are cliffs and steep areas that may prove to be dangerous for someone who is still to master the finer nuances of the sport.

Along with this, watch out for other skiers. It is not a good idea to stop suddenly in the middle of your run as there are many others behind who could crash into you. Pull over to a designated shoulder where you pose no hazard to others if you need to stop. Refrain from taking a leap without first looking ahead of your trajectory. This will prevent you from colliding with others. An accident at the combined speed of two skiers can be pretty dangerous. Always stay in complete control both on the ground and in the air. If you are not confident of your skills, refrain from trying stunts that could possibly end with disastrous results – for both yourself and other skiers. These basic precautions, simple and easy to follow, will ensure that you keep yourself safe and can ski for years to come without harming yourself or others.
