- Take a lesson. Like everything else, you`ll improve the
most when you receive some guidance. The best way to become good
at downhill skiing or snowboardiong is to take a lesson from a
qualified instructor. You`ll safely learn more in 2 hours than
you will in 2 weeks on your own.
- Obtain proper equipment. Be sure to have your ski or
snowboard binding adjusted correctly. WEAR a helmet!
Accidents happen and this is the best way to protect yourself from a
brain injury. You can rent quality ski or snowbord equipment at
one of our local trusted shops. www.PioneerSports.com and www.Carverskishop.com
- Dress in layers. Layering allows you to accomodate your
body`s constantly changing temperature. Do no wear cotton as a
base layer, wear somethign that dries quickly, absorbs sweat, and
- Be prepared. Mother nature has a mind of her own.
Bring a headband or hat with you to the slopes as 60 % of heat loss is
through the head.
- Drink plenty of water. At 9,700` base elevation, our
climate is extremely dry, so it`s easy to dehydrate. Staying
hydrated also helps prevent altitude sickness.
