47 Safety Skiing is a fantastic sport but it does carry a degree of risk. We minimise this by ensuring that activities are assessed before we go ( Hourmonts website is essential viewing for lots of information – www.htstotalski.com). Accidents do happen and often they are avoidable. It is essential that everyone follows instructions so that the chances of accidents are reduced. We will still have fantastic feelings of exhilaration even when being reasonably safe. Skiing is a fantastic sport but it does carry a degree of risk.

Accidents do happen and often they are avoidable. It is essential that everyone follows instructions so that the chances of accidents are reduced. We will still have fantastic feelings of exhilaration even when being reasonably safe. Everyone will carry a safety pack. This will contain the EHIC (E111), Medicard, personal details and some contact numbers in the event of a problem. This pack should be put in an inside pocket (with your lift pass) of the ski jacket and carried every day. It will ensure that, in the event of an accident, medical staff are immediately fully informed, e.g. of allergies.

48 And Finally – A Great Week Ahead Lots of these are coming again. Must be fun!
