Get Back on Skis After Falling


Get Back on Skis After Falling

In the snow when you fall down, is difficult to get up, as you usually do. Usually getting up after a fall with your Skis still attached on your feet can be pretty exhausting at first. However, when you get the hang of it, you will be able to make it without difficulty.
  • Position yourself by side, in this way it will be easy to get up. Joint your Skis in parallel to each other and across the Fall line. Try to bend your legs so it will be easier to lift yourself. Then with one hand on the handles and your other hand above the baskets, put your Ski Poles in front of your body and plant the tips uphill.

  • Using your Ski Poles for impulse and support, slightly lean forward and push yourself upward with your hand near the baskets.

  • Place your lower hand near the handles for more support as you push yourself upright.
This is the right way of getting up after a fall can spare you from injuries and exhaustion. Fortunately, now modern release bindings exist, which are specifically designed to kick the boots out of the Skis during a fall can minimize the risks of getting yourself injured.
