Make sure you have the right equipment
- Before every season you should have your ski and binding checked by a professional expert.
- Wear your ski helmet! Not only during skiing, but also during sledding, many accidents occur in which the head is affected.
- What is good for children can not be bad for adults. Adult skiers and snowboarders are just as at risk as children. Be an example and wear a helmet on the slopes.
The Feuerkogel ski school now offers a special service: skis, snowboards, skiboots, poles, ... to rent for the whole season (The offer is only valid as long as stocks last). A storage bonus is available for families!
On the piste
- Get warmed up! Your muscles react faster when your body is warmed up, which means many injuries to ligaments and joints can be prevented.
- Do some playful exercises with your children, such as jumping jack or have a snowball fight. It’s a lot of fun and warms your body up
- Since the effect of the warm up disappears quickly after sitting or standing for a long time, you should do your warm-up exercises after your lift journey
- Take regular breaks. Accident statistics show a high correlation between the symptoms of fatigue, such as lack of concentration, and increased accident frequency.
You can also prevent accidents by adhering to a few piste rules:
- Always look up before you set off
- Don't confuse the slopes with a ski race track
- Don’t leave the secured pistes
- Don't stand in a spot with poor visibility
- Give slower skiers a priority
- Only go up/down the edge of the piste, and take a break
- Don’t drink any alcohol (it decreases the reactivity t and leads to overestimate your own abilities)
