This article by the National Safety Council (NSC) gives several important safety tips to follow while skiing and snowboarding this winter.

Here are some important tips from the article:

  • Never ski or snowboard off designated trails, especially in areas that are closed or out of bounds. These areas are not monitored, and a rogue skier could even cause an avalanche.
  • Always wear a helmet that fits properly to reduce head injuries.
  • Look both ways and uphill before crossing a trail or starting down a hill.
  • Beginners should invest in proper instruction by taking lessons.
