    Five ways to prevent a skiing-related accident


    Skiing is a favourite past-time among many Britons but it also carries a high risk of experiencing skiing-related accident as the result of a slip, trip or fall.

    Five top tips for preventing a skiing-related accident

    At Accident Advice Helpline we strive to reduce the chances of accidents and the nasty injuries that occur as a result. Here are five preventative measures to avoid a skiing-related accident.

    1. Proper preparation: As with anything in life, proper preparation is the key avoiding to a skiing-related accident. Ensure that you maintain your fitness levels before embarking on a skiing trip. Most skiing accidents occur at the start of the day when skiers overexert themselves on the slopes. These injuries could be prevented by maintaining a regular exercise programme.
    2. Knowing safety rules: Understand and abide by the all the rules of the ski resort. You should also know general safety rules of skiing, such as how to stop properly, merge and yield to other skiers.
    3. Adequate instruction: If this is your first time embarking on a skiing trip, ensure that you receive proper instruction from a certified instructor who will teach you the basics of skiing as well as techniques to help reduce the chances of slipping or tripping.
    4. Wear appropriate equipment: Wear several layers of light, loose and waterproof clothing. This will allow you to accommodate your body’s ever changing temperature throughout the day when skiing. Buy or rent boots that have been properly maintained and set by a ski shop. The correct equipment can help reduce the chances of a slip or trip and also reduce the risk of developing frostbite.
    5. Ensure a safe environment: Stay on the marked trails and avoid potential avalanche areas such as steep hillsides with little vegetation. Watch out for rocks or patches of ice on the ski trails. Pay attention to warnings about upcoming storms or severe drops in temperature.
