Safe Skiing Week

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
It's safe skiing week around here right now. I thought it might be fun and good reminders for as many people as possible to post a good safe skiing tip they have learned over the years. We've done this before over the years but something like this never gets old does it?

mine, get your bindings release checked and your skis tuned periodically throughout the season. Don't make faulty equipment and neglect the reason for injury.

From the NSP in the 60's and still holds true today.

Don't ski ... after three (in the afternoon) ...

Look where you're going. You go where you look.

If your legs are getting tired, don't say "I'll just do ONE MORE run!" Quit before you get hurt. You can always ski again. If you take that one last run, it could be your last run of the season. More accidents happen when you are tired.

When you're skiing in the glades, and you see a low branch, DUCK!:

Never ski faster than your Angel.

i've skiied for 42 years and never been injured. Some of that I attribute to my mother's advice, when I was a little kid. She said if you are skiing and everything feels normal, but things start going wrong and you don't know why, Stop and Go inside.
This taught me to be aware of the effects of fatigue and cold, which at the time you often fail to recognise.

Failing to Stop and Go inside leads one to fulfilling that old saw: Everyone gets hurt on their last run of the day.

Just because you're on vacation / it's the weekend doesn't mean you can turn off your brain.

IIRC, Mad River Glen has had zero skier deaths.

"The invention of the shaped ski had made it easier and easier to go faster and faster. "

" But I've purchased a helmet in case someone speeding down the slopes runs into me before the lifts close. "

Spring break is the silly season. Be aware of the general public around you. Leave ample space between you and them. If you own a helmet, wear it.
