Over the past few days it has snowed so much in the mountainous regions that many of you have set off towards the deep snow to ski. Skiing off-piste is really great fun, but you should always follow a couple of rules put in place to make sure you don’t put yourself or others in danger. With this thought in mind, The North Face and its athletes have created a series of five short videos in which they explain the dangers you can face in the mountains, what to do in the case of an avalanche and some safety tips and warnings. To make sure you stay safe and can have a great time in the fresh snow, we’d like to share the videos with you. Take care!
