ATLANTA, Ga. (PRWEB) January 16, 2013
Ski and snowboard season is in full swing and millions will be hitting the slopes this time of year. While winter sports like these are fun, they can be dangerous. It’s important to know how to stay safe. To help consumers prepare, travel protection brand, Protect Your Bubble, shares a list of tips on how to avoid a ski accident.
1. Beginners should take lessons – It’s always advised that folks take the time to get special instruction before skiing or snowboarding. It’s important to know how to maneuver down the slopes, how to balance, how to slow down and how to avoid falling.
2. Take is slow – Speed demons, listen up: slow down! A lot of injuries and fatalities are because people simply gain too much speed and lose control. Be sure to maintain a speed that is comfortable and manageable.
3. Don’t drink and ski – Though it may be tempting, try to avoid that cocktail or beer at lunchtime. Higher altitudes can alter the effects of alcohol. In addition, the alcohol itself can impair one’s ability to maintain control, stay alert and think quickly; the very skills needed when on the slopes.
4. Get plenty of rest – Skiing and snowboarding can be exhausting. It’s crucial to get plenty of rest, both mentally and physically. Studies show that the most likely time for someone to suffer a ski injury is at about 3p on the third day of skiing. This is because that’s when muscle fatigue sets in. Be sure to stretch before and after each day of ski activity.
