Disclaimer: The use of uSki is reserved for people with a sufficient level of skiing to ensure the safety of the instructor/beginner pair!
Easy slopes, moderate speed!
The uSki is not designed for difficult slopes, nor is it designed to gain much speed. Favor gentle slopes with plenty of space!
Good snow and visibility conditions!
Visibility conditions and snow quality must be adapted to the student's technical level.
Never use the uSki on an icy slope!
In case of collision, let go of the lanyard!
In case a skier cuts the path of the pair, let go of the lanyard immediately to limit the risks!
When the student is not held by the lanyard, the instructor must stay close!
He must be able to slow down the student at any time in case he picks up too much speed!
Handle the lanyard gently!
Avoid jerking or pulling suddenly on one of the strands under penalty of causing a fall!
Adapt the distance between the pair!
Depending on the conditions, the distance between the instructor and the student must be sufficient to avoid hitting the beginner in the event of a fall!
Avoid narrow or overcrowded tracks!
The risk of collision is increased tenfold when space is reduced on the slope, especially when it is frequented by very fast skiers!
Disconnect and arrange the lanyard before using the chairlift!
Unhook the carabiners and store the lanyard in its pouch to prevent it from clinging to the chairlift!
Never let a beginner go back!
When skiing backwards, one must be able to spread the skis in V-shaped, which is impossible when the uSki is attached on the skis!
