  • Prevent you from endangering your fellow skiers
  • And to transport your Skiing equipment with ease
One recommendable way to carry your Skis is to place them on one shoulder with the tips in front. Place the point the tips of your Skis down while the tail is angled at 30-45 degrees. Now you hold your Ski Poles with one hand and then turning around.

Some backpacks have to included straps located on each side to accommodate extra pieces of gear, and you can use these to hold your Skis. Be sure to secure your Skis by tightening the straps. So tie the tips of the Skis together with a string or rubber band to prevent them from sliding.
