STAY SAFE ON YOUR SKI HOLIDAY

We all want to be able to go on our ski holiday and enjoy ourselves but is important to stay safe. Already there have been some terrible accidents in the mountains this winter so here here are some of our top tips for staying safe:

  • Make sure you pack warm base layers to keep you toastie warm including thermal top, fleece top, thermal leggings and ski socks. Layering up is key to keeping warm.
  • Make sure you have comfortable outerwear to keep you dry in all weather
  • Remember the mountain weather can be unpredicatabl so it's a good idea to pack for all conditions.
  • Helmets are becoming a staple on the mountain for people of all ages, gone are the days of skid lids being for children only
  • Make sure you have good quality equipment that has been well fitted
  • Stretch before you go skiing and at the end of the day to avoid injury
  • Stay hydrated
  • Pack your sun tan lotion to protect your skin
  • Make sure you have swatted up some basic french vocab to avoid the wrath of local French residents - a simple bonjour and merci will go a long way!
  • Carry a piste map and check lift closing times so you don't get stranded on the mountain
  • Carry a mobile phone in the event of an emergency
  • Make sure you have the name of your ski chalet or apartment and know which resort you are staying in
  • Do not use your ski poles or equipment to direct your party around the mountain as you may injur people near you
  • Do not go off piste unless you are with a guide or have experience.  Check out the Telegraphs guide to how to avoid avalanches
