  • If you are avidly training in a formal sport, such as professional figure skating, ensure that the activity is led by a trained coach.
  • Take frequent water breaks to prevent dehydration and overheating.
  • Avoid participating in sports when experiencing pain or exhaustion.
  • Never ski, sled, ice skate, snowmobile or snowboard alone.
  • Know and abide by all rules of the sport in which you are participating.
  • Wear appropriate protective gear, including goggles, helmets, gloves and padding, and make sure equipment is in good working order and used properly.
  • For warmth and protection, wear several layers of light, loose and water- and wind-resistant clothing. Layering allows you add and remove clothing to accommodate your body's constantly changing temperature when outside or in a cold environment such as an indoor ice rink.
  • Wear proper footwear that provides warmth and dryness, as well as ample ankle support.
  • When falling, try to fall on your side or buttocks. Roll over naturally, turning your head in the direction of the roll.
  • Pay attention to warnings about upcoming storms and severe drops in temperature to ensure safety.
  • Become familiar with the whereabouts of fences, trees, rocks, open water and patches of ice. Stay on marked trails and avoid potential avalanche areas, such as steep hillsides with little vegeta
