Dehydration + Skiing = Danger
Dehydration is a serious issue that every year leads to numerous accidents, particularly dangerous during skiing or snowboarding. Simply put, the combination of cold and dry air and physical effort can facilitate dehydration.
On the slopes, one of the main dangers of dehydration is that it can affect your riding performance. When you're dehydrated, your body cannot function properly.
This results in a feeling of fatigue, lethargy, and difficulty concentrating.
This might sound familiar, as these are the same symptoms as a hangover, because your body is dehydrated.
This can make skiing and/or snowboarding more dangerous.
You can anticipate this problem by consulting our article: Staying Hydrated During Your Ski Vacation, and following the advice of hedonists.
