SkiingSpeeding through snowy winter landscapes is an exhilarating activity to which many become addicted. Not only does skiing lift the spirits and broaden the mind with exposure to a crisp, fresh climate and breathtaking mountain scenery, it is also a challenging sport and excellent physical exercise.

The main ski destinations are in Europe and North America. Skiing makes for a great holiday with a strong social scene, and with a growing number of artificial ski slopes, you can practice your skills without snow before you go.

It helps to be fairly fit to start with, and proper ski instruction is crucial for both safety and enjoyment. Ski schools teach everything from the basics of turning, stopping safely and negotiating ski lifts to more advanced techniques and off piste skiing.

All ski equipment should be in good condition and properly fitted. Skis and boots can be hired at the resort. Other essential kit includes weatherproof clothes, a hat or helmet, glove, goggles, sunglasses and high factor sun screen.
