Safety Advice

With the cold and sometimes difficult conditions on the slopes, there is some basic safety information you should know:

  • Protect your eyes. You should use either goggles or sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun and any branches or stones that you might encounter.
  • Dress in warm clothing. You are advised to wear more than one layer of clothing and always wear a hat and gloves. Purchasing some thermal clothing that keeps the heat in would be a recommended.
  • Know your limits. You may be an experienced Skier, but you should try to be on or off piste with a friend and always know when it is time for a break.
  • Follow good piste etiquette. You should always give way to those who are in front or below you. Doing so will lower the chance of any potential accidents or injuries.

Pre Existing Medical Conditions

In case that you have a Medical Condition, it is essential to share this information, as this might affect a potential future claim.
