How to Say Safe While Skiing at Whitecap Mountains Resort
We take safety seriously here at Whitecap Mountains Resort—but that’s another reason to vacation with us! A ski resort that doesn’t talk about safety often would be remiss, as ensuring its customers have a great time is partially a function of ensuring its customers have a safe time.
If you’re a skiing veteran, you probably are all too familiar with the following safety tips, but if you’re a newbie (Welcome!), these will most likely be new. Regardless, keep in mind the following before hitting the slopes:
Take a Ski Lesson
Whether you’ve never skied before or just haven’t been in awhile, taking a ski lesson can give you the tips and confidence you need to stay safe and have more fun on the slopes.
Whitecap Mountains Resort offers top instructors for all ages and levels of skiing and snowboarding. Get skiing tips for beginners here!
Choose Ski Equipment That Fits
Make sure your boots fit properly and bindings are adjusted correctly. Your boots should feel tight, but not so tight they cut off circulation or cause pressure points.
Whether you rent ski equipment from us or not, we’ll be happy to help get you fitted!
Wear Sunscreen on the Slopes
Bring sunscreen and apply it liberally. Though sunburn isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when people think of a wintertime resort, snow is highly reflective and can throw the rays right back at you, making for damaged skin and eyes. It’s a normal part of skiing to bring sunscreen and protective goggles, so don’t feel weird for doing it.
Always Wear a Ski Helmet
It’s tempting to want to be like those snowboarders and skiers in the movies, with your hair free and flying in the breeze—but quite frankly it’s unsafe. Head trauma if you take a tumble is a very real thing, so don a fashion-forward helmet instead. You’ll feel just as cool wearing the top brands, and you’ll feel even more comfortable pushing your limits when you know you’ll be safe doing so.
Choose Ski Trails for Your Experience Level
Don’t get reckless. Stick to the trails you know you can handle. While pushing your limits is one thing, outright ignoring them is another. You’ll get the most thrill, anyway, when you know you’re safe. No need to turn that thrill into terror!
If you want to get used to skiing more challenging slopes, consider ski lessons. They aren’t just for kids!
