First time ever skiing - going on Sunday.

Nerves are kicking in. Starting to dread the thought of injuring myself.

Please tell me it will be ok!!!

Well, it probably will! Key questions: how old are you? How fit are you? Do you have any pre-existing injuries? Do you have a helmet?

IME fitness is really key not only regarding injuries but with enjoyment! You'll probably be fine the first couple of days learning to snow plough down a nursery slope, the dangerous time is a couple of days in when you feel more confident and whizz off on to bigger slopes without your instructor - you know, when you think you can ski and you can't, not really! Stay well within your comfort zone and you'll be fine. Probably 😬
