Advanced skiers have already picked up many tricks and improved their skiing. They are the most experienced skiers on mountains and should observe all skiers on a slope and have full overview. This could prevent some accidents. Advanced category of skiers already gained better senses for the slope base, different quality of snow, combination of ice, powder or muddy slopes, weather conditions. However, sometimes we need to have 'eyes on our back' to avoid an accident. A skier who loses control is close to the slope sometimes, and you should be careful. Especially, when you are in front of a tight, icy part of a fast slope with skiers around.
This group of skiers is presumed to be the safest of all the others. Many of them ski their whole life and we see them on ski trails with professional technique, aggressive skiing and good quality equipment. We are all impressed by them, but they are exposed to a much higher risk than anyone else. Why? Very often they choose to go off path, into deep snow or tree areas, because only then they can feel the adrenalin and the pleasure of skiing. We are talking about ski terrain where a little error can have quite significant consequences.
The biggest challenge is skiing on an old, exported snow and we separate this skiing because of special conditions and complexity. Let’s say a few words about it.
From one moment to another, conditions on pathway change and a skier has different quality, height and hardness of snow. Transition is required with a prompt change of style and technique of skiing. A skier has under his/her skis either: ice base, old snow, heaps, and should quickly change his/her motion in accordance with slope conditions. If a skier doesn’t have a prompt reaction, skiing becomes uncomfortable, hard and probably impossible. A skier needs different motion every moment which means skiers uses his own skills, energy and senses more than in any other conditions. He/she experiences different bases of a slope and reacts accordingly. For skiing on a varying type of snow, a skier needs more experience and an automatic motion. They should practice a lot how to synchronize their flow of thoughts and movements. While practicing or skiing professionally on these types of complex terrains, chances of getting a serious injury drastically increase.
