Step 1: Know yourself Know your skill level, and stick to runs you can handle. Don't take on the hardest runs if you don't have the ability. This is dangerous to you and everyone around you. Step 2: Yield to slower boarders Watch out for slower skiers and boarders and yell to them which side you will be passing them on. It is up to you to yield to them and pass them with caution. Tip Leave your headphones at home. Being able to hear those around you is a key to safety. Step 3: Don't stop Do not stop on a path. If you must take a break, move off to the side to get out of the way of traffic. Step 4: Get control of your gear Make sure that your gear is secured and won't go careening down the hill on its own. This means using the proper binding gear and checking before every outing. Step 5: Stay at the scene Stay at the scene of any accident you are involved in until help arrives. Tip Take yourself out before taking someone else out. If you are a path to hit another boarder, make yourself fall down. You will be prepared for your collision with the ground -- they would not. Step 6: Know the rules Read the rules. Each snow resort will have its own set of guidelines that you need to follow. Get out and enjoy the snow. Did You Know? Men's and women's snowboarding was added to the Winter Olympics in 1998 at Nagano, Japan.
