When at the end of the day you can sit with good company for dinner, warming by the fire and having a few drinks, ahhh pure joy. However we all know the hidden dangers on the slopes and trails. It's part of enjoying the sport and we are all aware of it.
If you are new or have limited experience with skiing it's a good idea to take some lessons at the slopes. Be honest about your skiing ability. When you take lessons this will matter. It is important so that you can get the most out of your instruction. You could end up hurting yourself by trying a move you aren't capable of doing correctly. So even though it may not seem important, you should take it seriously because of the possibility for injury to yourself or others.
Ski trails are rated typically by skill level. These ratings were created by the pros at these resorts because they know what they are talking about. Never attempt a trail that is clearly beyond your ability as you'll be inviting disaster.
If you're a skier who loves to go to your favorite mountain on the weekend, then you've seen the times when the place is just packed. These are the times you need to be extra careful and aware on the trails. You will no doubt run into those rude ski bunnies who just don't care about anyone else's safety. There is however a code of ethics for skiers too that has a goal of keeping everyone as safe as possible. So be sure you give the right-of-way to those who deserve it, and be courteous and extra alert at all times.
It is more than possible to have a total blast on the slopes in just about all conditions. So play it safe so you can return to play on the slopes another day.
