On the slopes, it's essential to pay attention to these tips so that you won't end up with a ski injury. While people think that skiing is a dangerous sport, most injuries on the slopes are due to situations that could have been avoided.
Taking a few ski lessons can actually reduce your chance of injury by as much as 50%. Make sure that your boots are fitted perfectly and have them routinely checked. Bindings should also be checked and maintained.
Certainly, you shouldn't find yourself on a slope that is too difficult for your ability level. Black diamonds, for instance, are only for advanced skiers, and double black diamonds are for truly advanced skiers.
Make sure to be properly warmed up before skiing. While we all agree that it's important to warm up before exercising, many people forget that skiing is also exercising. Stretch your hamstrings before you start, get your quadriceps and calf muscles warm and get your heart rate up a bit.
Finally, before getting on the slopes, make sure to have a good breakfast and to take energy snacks with you along the way. Pay attention as you get tired and give your body the chance to rest when you need to.
