Ski Patrol has put together some first timer tips that will get you on the path to the fun and exciting world of alpine sports.

While we highly recommend taking a lesson your first time, these tips will take away some of the surprises that you may encounter during your first day on the slopes. These tips were compiled by people who were most likely born on snow so they have most of the answers you need.
