Default Re: Skiing Tips

The first time getting on a chairlift can be tricky. Chairlifts are the main transportation up to the slopes at many Ski Resorts. You will have to learn how to get on the chairlift while still wearing your skis. To do this, start by sliding forward as the gate swings open and waiting for the next chairlift to arrive from behind you. You should be looking back towards the approaching chairlift so you can see it coming. The forward motion of the chairlift should plant you in the seat automatically. As you’re lifted off the ground, lower the restraining bar so that you are safely secured in the seat. Try not to rock or sway unnecessarily as it can hamper the movement of the chairlift and decrease your safety during the ride.
