While excitement and recreation are your priorities scheduling a vacation at Perisher ski, the people at the resort have your safety as their number one concern. It’s essential that you’re informed about basic snow safety precautions to ensure that you have the utmost enjoyment for your snow holiday.
When you’re travelling in the snow, you need to equip your vehicle with snow chains on your tires. The moment you enter the Kosciuszko National Park, the law requires you to have these snow chains. If you don’t have those things, you can rent quality chains from Jindabyne, Cooma or Berridale. You just have to know about your tire dimension and tire code for hiring the right snow chains. A trip to Perisher ski also entails that you pack a waterproof blanket with you. This will come in handy when you need to fit the chain onto your tires. If you have the time, practice fitting the snow chains to your vehicle at home.
You’ll be dealing with the most unpredictable weather when you’re going to Perisher ski. You have to pack the right clothing and wear clothing in various layers. If you don’t have insulating articles of clothing, you have to buy some. These will protect you from the cold, wind and wet weather. With heat easily lost in the head, hands and feet, you have to wear thick socks, waterproof gloves and a beanie on your head. You can also rent waterproof outerwear jackets from the resort.
Eye and skin protection also make up Perisher ski snow safety. With the reflectivity of the snow, your eyes can easily be hurt. To avoid snow blindness, wear goggles or sunglasses. As for your skin, always have a bottle of high SPF sunscreen. This will protect you from the harmful rays of the sun which can still be pretty strong in the cloudiest and shadiest of days. If you’re going skiing or snowboarding, you also have to wear a helmet.
