6. Become acquainted with the symptoms of frostbite and hypothermia. These include white patches on the skin and uncontrollable shivering.

7. On one-way trails, only ski in the direction that is specified.

8. If you fall, be sure to fill in the sitzmark.

9. Dress in layers. You may feel cold at first, but after awhile, you may get overheated from exertion.

10.Progress slowly. Keep in mind that if you venture out too far, you still have to make your way back!

2. Carry a trail map with you!

3. For longer excursions, wear a backpack that contains food, drink, a waxing kit, extra clothing, emergency repair equipment and a first-aid kit.

4. Be aware of your limitations and only ski on trails that are within your level of ability.

5. It’s best to ski in groups of at least three people. That way, if a skier is injured someone can stay with them while someone else goes for help.
