A small summary of some security advices for you going out in the snowy mountains of Euregio Tirol-Südtirol-Trentino.
If you got some noteable brain activity, try to protect it! Thus you should use a ski helmet. In additon you could use back protectors. Some use their back protectors from motor cycling, but nowadays there is also better gear specially designed for skiing!
There are multiple aspects of security when using such a helmet and back protectors.
In case you are snowboarding: use the special protection gloves! If you just want to try it for the first time: Ask Clemens, he always has an extra pair of snowboard-gloves with him!
Do not drink alcohol or consume drugs while riding your snowboard or going by ski!
In Austria there is no hard limit for consumation of alcohol while skiing. But beside the laws and regulations, it is not wise to drink and ski/snowboard anyways. That could also cause issues with your insurances in case of an accident!
Read the avalanche report of your region every morning!
Also if you do not plan to leave the slopes! You could decide differently if you are on the slopes!
Keep in mind: most accidents with avalanches happen at Risk Level 3 (LWS 3)! Level 3 is already pretty high!
With Risk Level 5 (LWS 5) just stay at home/hotel. Have a nice day in the SPA area, read a book or something like that. Seriously!
In doubt, ask regionals. They know their region better than you, they live there, and maybe already their grand-grand parents lived there too!
Risk levels for avalanche danger have been standardized all over Europe back in 1993. You could and should trust them!
