A survey by travel insurance company InsureandGo found German skiers have a lack of awareness of those around them on the slopes.
Skiers should also be cautious of the Italians, who have ”a tendency to ski and board too fast”, the poll found.
The survey showed that British skiers, especially men, have a habit of showing off on-piste.
Meanwhile the French overestimate their abilities, and the Spanish often do not have enough training.
Late in the day is the time most ski accidents happen, followed by just after lunch.
The biggest cause of accidents is people pushing themselves beyond their ability because of “jealousy of others’ expertise on the slopes.”
What do you think of the survey results? How do Americans measure up?
