When is your ski vacation safe?

The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association announced Thursday that it is urging customers to limit their outdoor activities and take a short vacation from March 1 through March 10.

“As the winter months begin to get underway, it is important for families to be able to plan and prepare ahead of time to enjoy some great skiing and snowboarding experiences,” the association said in a statement.

The association said that if a family member or friend decides to spend the day outdoors, they should consider taking a short break from activities.
