If you are planning to go skiing this year, you will want to make the most of your time away. The good news is you can make your holiday the best one yet, you just have to know how.
Below you will find some tips that will help you make the most of your skiing holiday, ensuring you enjoy every minute.
Brush up on your Technique
If you have been skiing before you may want to think about brushing up on your technique. It’s easy to forget exactly what you should do and when especially if you’ve not been skiing for a while. Why not watch a few videos and imagine yourself making all of those moves. Practice those moves yourself and they will soon start to feel more natural.
If you have never been skiing before it would not hurt for you to watch a few videos. However, nothing can compare with being trained by a qualified ski instructor on the slopes.
Give Children the Chance to Acclimatise
If you plan on skiing up in the mountains or in an especially high ski resort you will need to give your children the chance to acclimatise. A drop in air pressure can make a child’s ears hurt so you need to do what you can to help them acclimatise. On your way up to the slopes or resort stop off somewhere for at least 15 minutes. Give your little ones something to drink so the pressure in their ears equalises.
It’s absolutely vital that you stay hydrated when you’re on the slopes. The excitement of finally arriving at the destination you booked with Voyage Prive can make you forget to take proper care of yourself.
When you’re staying somewhere that’s many metres above sea level you will need twice as much water as you’d ordinarily have. Air in the mountains tends to be very dry and your body will feel different. While you may not feel tempted to drink twice as much as normal you really should. You will soon become dehydrated and you won’t feel very good.
If you spend a day on the slopes try to break up your time with some fluids now and again, you’ll feel better for it. If you are taking children with you make sure they drink enough fluids. Place a bowl of water up high in their room so the air is not quite so dry.
Always Wear a Helmet
Irrespective of how much skiing experience you have or how old you are you should always wear a helmet. A helmet could ultimately save your life so make sure you keep it on at all times, even when you’re on the ski lift. You may not like the feel or look of the helmet but needs must. If you want to enjoy your ski holiday you’ll need to keep your helmet on.
Use the above tips to help you make the most of your skiing holiday, ensuring you have a holiday to remember for all the right reasons.
