Check equipment regularly.

It is winter which means time for skiing and snowboarding for many. If you’re hitting the slopes, here are some safety tips to review with your family and friends:

  • Wear a helmet – Be sure it fits properly and remember it will not prevent a serious injury
  • Use caution with chairlifts – you need to get to the top of the mountain safely
  • Snowboarders should wear wrist guards – reduces injuries from falling onto outstretched hands.
  • Have your equipment checked regularly
  • Use sunscreen
  • Protect your eyes – sun glasses and googles that have UV protection are essential
  • Be prepared for winter driving – have emergency supplies and your car checked
  • Give snow plows room to maneuver
  • Be aware that avalanches can occur – stay within the trail
  • Never be on the slopes alone
