5 Ways to make your ski trip the best one yet

Skiing: a time to get your adrenaline levels pumping and also take in some amazing views from the top of an alpine peak. Your first skiing trip was a learning experience and you probably spent most of your time on the beginner slopes just trying not to fall over. Your next skiing trip is where the fun really begins as you have enough knowledge and experience to make your time more memorable. Here are five top tips on how to make your next skiing adventure the best it can possibly be:


1. Get an instructor

You might have thought your learning days were behind you, but when it comes to skiing there will always be a new trick or technique to master. You should always hire an instructor regardless of your experience level as they can make your time on the slopes much safer. They will also help you to perfect your ability, of course; helping you to become a more advanced and confident skier.

2. Make sure you’re fully covered

Did you know that more than one third of travellers fail to check if they have the correct insurance for their winter sports activities? Some don’t even get insurance at all. However, this can be an oversight that can cost you dearly. No matter how much skiing experience you have, an accident could occur at any time and it only takes a minute of absent thought to end up injured; in fact, for every 1 million Brits who go skiing as many as 17,000 will come home on crutches. Statistics show that beginners aren’t even the most likely to get injured: 54% of deaths and injuries occur on intermediate slopes, which are typically navigated by more seasoned skiers.

Think ahead: Get insured before you leave


3. Consider upgrading your ski equipment

If you’ve hit the slopes a few times and know you’ll be coming back every year for more, it might be time to invest in some quality kit that will stand the test of time and enhance your skiing experience. Hiring out skis can get expensive and it takes some time for your body to adjust to them, meaning you’re missing out on some quality time on the slopes. Buy your own custom pair that will make your trip much more enjoyable.

4. Try other snow sports

Skiing is great, but don’t forget that there are so many other amazing snow sports to try out while you’re on the slopes. Snowboarding is a completely different experience where you have more control over the board under your feet. For a more laid-back adventure, hire out a toboggan and enjoy the rush of simply sliding down a hill at high speed.

5. Ski in different countries

If you get comfortable at one ski resort, don’t fall into the trap of returning to it year after year. There are hundreds of ski resorts across the world in countries you never even knew had slopes. Best of all, you don’t need to limit your ski trip to the winter months as it’s possible to experience skiing all year around.
