6 Ski Hacks That Will Change Your Life Next Time You Hit The Slopes

Whether you're looking to speed up your run, or looking to save time preparing. Or maybe you want to insiders tips of how you can avoid the queues and the crowds. Here's 6 ski hacks from a world class ski instructor so you too can act like a pro and get the most out of your ticket.

1

The Quietest Time To Hit The Slopes

The Quietest Time To Hit The Slopes

Ski till stumps on Sunday. People like to hit the road home early to “beat the traffic”. You are the traffic! So stay out for a few more hours, and enjoy empty slopes and a killer sunset! Your couch will still be there when you get home, and you’ll have a faster and more traffic free run and a few more runs under your belt.

Drying Your Gloves

Drying Your Gloves

It's a given. You'll end a run and are ready for a short break but you've got wet gloves to deal with. The cold and wet do not mix well. Use the hand dryer in the bathroom to dry out your wet gloves and goggles during the day. Bonus - there's nothing more refreshing them putting back on a pair of toasty warm gloves!

Avoid Getting Caught On The Inside Of The Lift Line

Avoid Getting Caught On The Inside Of The Lift Line

Hug the outside of any huge lift line. You’ll get a faster and cleaner run to the chair than those caught on the inside.

Avoid The Lunch Queue

Avoid The Lunch Queue

Pack mid-morning snacks that can get you through to a 2pm lunch to skip the midday lunch time crowds. It's a double win too. The slopes will be quieter for you while everyone else is out scoffing down their hot dogs.

Keep Your Skis From Being Snagged

Keep Your Skis From Being Snagged

Worried about your new pair of skis going walkabouts while you’re at lunch? Split them up. Stick one ski on a rack and the other in the snow by the entrance. No one wants to take off with just one odd ski.

Avoid Queues On The Day

Avoid Queues On The Day

Buy your lift tickets in advance online & ski straight past the lift ticket queue in the morning and onto the lift. More time on the slopes for you means more time refining your skills.
