Skiing is the best sport in the world. However, a few missteps can make skiing uncomfortable, painful, and downright shameful.
Here are the Things You Should Never Do Skiing | Pt. 1
– Wearing 2 Pairs Of Socks
Wearing 2 pairs of socks will guarantee loss of circulation as well as heinous blisters that will make the genital warts images you saw in middle school health class a not so distant memory.
– Leaving Your Boots Unbuckled
Leaving your boots unbuckled after a day of skiing is a cardinal sin for any ski bum. It ruins the shape of your liner and shell and will leave your feet begging for mercy.
– Hiking With Goggles On Your Head
It doesn’t matter how short the hike, putting your goggles on your head for that bootpack ensures a miserable ride down. There is no worse way to ruin a sick run then executing this misstep.
– Claiming First Chair The Night Before
In the words of Ernest Hemingway, “Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.”
– Calling Last Run
Claiming “last run” is a sure fire way to get injured. Bottomline, your legs aren’t ready for the mach looney speeds mandated by calling “last run.”
