We are currently in peak season for skiing and snowboarding. Many people are heading to the slopes to participate in these popular winter sports.
Skiing and snowboarding can be very fun; however, it is not fun when accidents happen. Accidents can often times lead to life altering injuries. We want you to stay safe this winter, that is why we have put together a list of tips
Before hitting the slopes, make sure to do some simple stretches. This will waken your muscles.
Make sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
