Untrained skiers risking injury

More than 50% of skiers are risking injury by hitting the slopes without any tuition, a survey has shown.
The decision to buck lessons was made by 8% of skiers because they 'couldn't be bothered' according to insurance company InsureandGo.
Almost a quarter of people said the cost of lessons led to them not taking any, while 28% thought they were too good to bother with tuition.
The results led Perry Wilson, founder of InsureandGo, to warn untrained skiers that they could face liability claims if involved in an accident.
He said: "These are really concerning figures which suggest that there could be a huge number of injuries and accidents on the slopes this year as untrained skiers come unstuck. Untrained skiers also need to be aware they could be leaving themselves open to liability claims if they cause an accident or injure someone on the slopes.
"Apathy and arrogance are not good reasons to avoid taking lessons. If you're paying for a winter sports holiday, you really must ensure you've invested in proper training too."
