Safe skiing

  19.02.2020 Sports & Leisure

The main reason for the accidents is excessive speed. In order to avoid serious injuries, it is essential to always adjust the speed, for which one must also know one’s abilities and limitations. In addition, attention must be paid to the right material, the weather and the condition of the pistes.

Winter sport enthusiasts should also listen to their body and take sufficient breaks. Accidents are more frequent before lunch break in particular. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that there are a lot of people on the slopes at this time of day. On the other hand, the first signs of fatigue appear around midday – especially if a long drive to the ski resort requires an early start. It is therefore important to take breaks in time and to eat and drink sufficiently.
