Disclaimer: The use of uSki is reserved for people with a sufficient level of skiing to ensure the safety of the instructor/beginner pair!
Never let a beginner go backward while the Uski is locked!
When skiing backwards, one must be able to spread the skis in V-shaped, which is very difficult to do for a beginner, particularly when the uSki is locked !
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, hold the leashes!
In case a skier cuts the path of the pair, hold the leashes to limit the risks!
When the student is not held by the leashes, 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 leashes 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 leashes before using the skilift or the chairlift!
Unhook the carabiners and store the leashes in its bag to prevent it from clinging to the skilift or the chairlift!
Never let a beginner ride the ski lift alone while the Uski is locked!
In case the beginner lets go of the pole too early, there is a risk that he will go backwards and hit the skiers coming downstream!
