- You need to eat well in the morning and keep well hydrated. The fresh air, the cold and the effort take a lot of energy.
- Dress warmly: the mountains are cold (especially when it's windy). Several small layers are better than one big jumper.
- Shoes that fit and good socks will protect your feet, but don't wear several layers of socks (the blood doesn't circulate and your feet can freeze).
- A helmet will protect you if you fall.
- Don't forget to wear a hat and gloves (mittens are even better).
- Wear a mask or goggles. The sun reflecting off the snow can harm your eyes.
- Put on sun cream and lip stick, even when it is grey (UV A and B cream).
- Make sure you have your bindings properly adjusted, according to your weight, height and level.
- Remember to take out an insurance. The rescue service is very expensive.
HOW TO BEHAVE ON THE SLOPES:
- You must control your speed and be in control of your trajectory.
- You must always pay attention to other skiers. You can hit someone, hurt them and injure yourself.
- Don't stop behind a bump, a skier could hit you.
- Never stop in the middle of the slope, stand on the side of the slope to avoid any accident.
- Eat energizing products, keep hydrated, rest, the altitude and the cold are tiring for your body.
- Do not throw papers, candies, chewing gums, cigarette butts, garbage, etc. under the chairlift or in the snow.
- Do not leave anything in the mountain. Imagine how it will look like when the snow melts...
