Let’s face it, skiing and snowboarding are not without risk. There’s the cold, the wind, and the snow you’ve got to worry about. There are hazards such as trees, chairlifts, and other skiers you need to watch out for.

Start with three items, though, and you’ll be coming home safely, then heading back out for more.
