It’s getting colder outside, we’ve passed what meteorologists refer to as the hump day of the summer, and its officially getting colder from now on. The facebook feed shows us first pictures of snow on the mountains and we all know what that means: the winter season is approaching! As real snow and ski enthusiasts you’re probably right in the middle of preparations for the upcoming season: choosing the right destination for your next skiing holiday, booking accommodation and- most importantly- putting together the perfect outfit for a flawless appearance on the slopes! Other essential points on your to-do-list include booking the best skiing instructors and equipment with Skimundi, getting in shape and preparing yourselves for the action on the slopes in the gym or with ski gymnastics. So far, so good. However, your preparations should not stop there. Not only before hitting the slopes there are some things to consider but also while enjoying the turnd in the snow in order to assure that skiing is a safe and fun experience for everyone involved.
Especially during high season when the slopes are crowded and many ski instructors help their guests enjoy their first experiences on the snow it is crucial to follow a few basic rules concerning behaviour on the mountains. Yes, we know that rules are not highly popular and kind of boring.

Just follow them and you and your fellow skiers and snowboarders are going to have a safe and fun time in the snow.
Phew, with this last, honestly quite dry, rule we conclude our 10 rules for behaviour on the slopes. Congratulation, you’ve made it through all the rules and now you’re definitely prepared for your next skiing holiday or full season in the mountains!
Last but not least the absolute most important rule for the upcoming season: Have fun! A new, wonderful season is approaching and by bearing in mind these few basic rules we are sure you are going to enjoy a fun, relaxed and safe time in the mountains!
