Promotion: Top skiing tips
Are you thinking of hitting the slopes this season? In this video special we give you the tips you need to ensure that you have a great ski holiday this season.
First, make sure you have the right equipment. Whether you rent or buy you’ll need a warm ski-jacket, a hat, a helmet, a quality pair of goggles, gloves and salopettes – don’t wear jeans as they could get wet and then freeze.
It’s also important to get fit for the slopes – doing an exercise programme before heading off could make the difference between an enjoyable holiday or a painful one! But however much you prepare there is always the chance of accidents while skiing.
“In the event of injury, it could cost up to €3,000 to get an airlift from the slopes,” says Fiona Butler, manager of ski insurance at www.Getcover.ie, “So, make sure to take out adequate ski insurance when booking your ski holiday.”
