Five common emergencies in the ski resort and the solution
Can't find your phone? Skateboard accidentally slipped down the mountain? Get separated from friends... Speaking of accidents in the snow field is really countless. So, what should we do at such times? Remember not to panic, first calm down, there is always a way to solve. The following are some of my own / friends encountered unexpected situations, I hope that through the sharing can somehow help you, in advance in mind to rehearse the emergency methods.
Injuries due to collisionSnowboard and snowboard players often collide with each other in ski resorts. Therefore, many ski resorts are divided into trails and snow parks according to "beginners", "intermediates" and "advanced" ability levels. Therefore, it is important to choose the slope that suits your level. Keep an appropriate distance from other skiers while skiing. In addition, I would like to remind beginners to pay more attention when using the snow park, because the snow park is set up with a variety of jumps and half pipe and other practice game facilities (obstacles). If you are not familiar with playing, there is a high risk of accidents such as rubbing your hands and feet or spraining your ankles. Please follow the instructions of the instructor or the staff, and if you are accidentally injured, please go down the mountain quickly for emergency treatment. Since there are usually staff patrolling the slopes, it is safer to explain the situation first and then ask the staff to lead you to the emergency room attached to the ski center.
Lost in the skiing accidentally separated from family and friends is also one of the accidents that can easily happen. The weather at the ski resort is changing, sometimes it is clear that the last second is still sunny, the next instant immediately blowing snow to become poor vision, it is likely to get separated from family or friends can not find the way. Hey, not much to say, I lost. Even if you want to contact each other, it is possible that because the other party is skiing and did not receive a phone call, or poor Internet reception, etc. can not immediately confirm the location of the other party. Therefore, when wearing clothes and preparing equipment, it is best to choose the more conspicuous, and in advance with the partners to cross the good time and meeting place, so that each understand the situation, aware of changes in the environment.
Apart from injuries and getting lost, the most common accident is the loss or theft of keys or cell phones. The most common of these is a wallet. Sometimes, if you are lucky, your wallet will be recovered by the staff patrolling the slopes, but in ski resorts with a lot of traffic, the chances of getting it back are usually very low, so it is better to be prepared in advance. If you lose your wallet or purse, please go to the visitor service center immediately and explain what happened, contact your credit card company and ask for a card suspension, then file a report with the police. In fact, many ski resorts have posters in the restrooms and restaurants that say "Theft may occur. Please be careful." and so on. Therefore, you can leave your valuables such as wallet or keys at the counter of the hotel you are staying at, or if not, you can leave them in the coin box at the ski resort and bring them to the ski resort with you. There are also many cases of ski theft, so it is advisable to lock your skis or poles when you eat at a restaurant and leave them in a place where you can see them. In addition, when riding on the chairlift, you can't catch your phone with your gloves on, so it slips off accidentally. When riding, it often happens that lift tickets or cell phones fall, and it is very likely that they will hit people passing underneath and cause injuries to others, so pay special attention to this point.
Even if the weather is sunny in the morning, it may suddenly turn cloudy or windy in the afternoon. In order to put the safety of the passengers as the first priority, depending on the weather conditions, the operation of the chairlift may be suspended or the skiing in the snow park may be suspended. In that case, an announcement will be made inside the snow park and visitors will be refunded for their lift tickets at the Visitor Information Center, and alternative transportation will be provided to facilitate the descent. There are also many cases of people being killed when they slip off the trail due to poor visibility caused by bad weather. In the unfortunate event of a mountain disaster, please call your family or friends immediately for help. It is important to remember that you should avoid going alone and never enter any area that says "no entry".
05Failure of equipmentIt is common for beginners to fall or collide with other skiers, resulting in damage to rental equipment. In principle, you must pay for the full cost of your rental equipment if your skis are broken or your snowsuit is damaged due to a fall. If you pay the full amount, you will have to pay a lot of money, so it is recommended that you purchase insurance in advance for insurance purposes. The chances of this are actually very small, so just be aware of it. There is also the possibility that your borrowed snowboard, poles, snowsuit, etc. will break down. In case of failure, please go to the rental center and ask the store staff to help you change to a new equipment. Please remember to check if there are any damaged or missing parts when you rent them.

There are also some common cases that are not listed, so I hope you can point them out. Even if we are careful, unexpected things can happen. Be prepared, don't panic, have confidence in yourself at all times, and handle unexpected events calmly. Of course, you should also know how to ask for help. I hope that none of the above will happen to you, and JEKOSEN wishes you a lot of fun every time you ski.
