Skiing is great fun and makes for a fabulous family holiday, but the adrenaline buzz is not without risk. It is estimated that a staggering 300 million people around the world are involved in winter sports, with 200m skiers and 100m snowboarders, so it is inevitable that accidents will happen.
Assembling all the equipment is fairly simple. Most ski areas will rent you a board and binding set up and a pair of boots for between $30 and $50 per day. If you want to buy your own stuff, expect to spend at least $500 to get any decent quality set of boots, bindings and board.
