What better way  to spend this Christmas season then in the mountains skiing and boarding with your loved ones? We don’t think there is one! This is why we have 5 safety tips for Christmas ski trips in Breckenridge. Keep  these Christmas ski safety tips in mind to make your Christmas ski vacation your best holiday yet!

  1. Be prepared ahead of time and bring the right clothing! There’s very little that can ruin a person’s day on the mountain faster than being frozen and uncomfortable. Do some research before you get on the plane or behind the wheel. Look at weather predictions, or even what temps were like last year during the Christmas Breck Skiingseason. This way you can plan ahead and be sure to bring the appropriate attire to stay cozy and warm while having the adventure of a lifetime this Christmas season!
  2. Drink lots of water, and take some time to adjust! Altitude sickness is a surefire way to put a damper on any holiday vacation.  The best advice that can be given for avoiding altitude sickness is to DRINK LOTS OF WATER! Feelings of dizziness, shortness of breath, headache, and nausea that can accompany a drastic change in altitude are not fun for anyone.
  3. Plan transportation ahead of time! Nobody wants to spend their Christmas Eve sitting in the airport because they can’t seem to find a ride into the mountains. We suggest setting up your shuttle service with Peak 1 Express as soon as you book your flight. This way you have nothing but fun to look forward to as you walk off your plane.
  4. Wear a helmet! Colorado Mountains are large and can also be dangerous. Prevent any unnecessary injuries by wearing a helmet on the mountain! Being safety conscious throughout your vacation is a definite way to make it memorable.
  5. Know your skier responsibility code! Its written on the back of your ski pass and also on the waiver you have to sign in order to receive said pass. Look out for yourselves and others enjoying their holidays and follow the rules meant to keep you safe while on the mountain.

If you are lucky enough to be spending your Christmas in the mountains then be smart and take these simple steps to maximize the fun you and your loved ones are hoping for.
