SkiingWith the Holidays coming up, a ski trip may just be the perfect get away from work or school for you. Even if it is your first time to take a ski trip, you can have a great time, whether you go alone, with friends or with family. Spending ski holidays at a place like Val d’Isere can be a wonderful experience you will remember always.To help you on your trip, here are a few tips.

Skiing Golden Rule

When thinking of ski gear, remember the golden rule of ski trips: don’t buy; borrow. First-timers are better off with borrowed gear than bought ones. You may decide after your first trip that you’ll pass on the whole idea of skiing. It may not be for you. Only buy when you have grown to love the sport and actually plan on going on a ski trip for the second, third, and many other times in the future.

Physical Skiing

You can also remember that skiing is a physical sport. You may fall over and hurt yourself if you are not careful. To help you avoid such accidents, you can prepare by getting fit before your ski trip. Exercise your knees, pelvis, quads, and glutes to help you ski better, and thus, prevent accidents.


Besides exercising, if you really want to ski well, you can practise in indoor ski centres here in the U.K. You may not feel like you are on an actual mountain, but it will do for practice. You can also watch videos online not just for practise and learning, but also for knowing more tips about skiing and ski trips.

When you have never set foot in a ski resort before, experts recommend that you book a room at a catered chalet than cheaper options such as a self-catering apartment. A catered ski chalet will be responsible for your meals, and its staff can help you with navigating around the resort.
