Skiing, like all action sports, is a potentially dangerous activity, with a level of risk certainly not comparable with spending the weekend on the couch.

This website is not meant to replace real-life coaching and instruction. Use this website's content the same way you use a book: at your own risk! We cannot make any representation as to the suitability of this content/advice to your particular situation. Applying the instructions or advice here can certainly result in injuries, especially if not done under supervision, not matched to your current skill level etc.


The operators and moderators and content authors on this website cannot be held liable for any injuries arising from your use of this website or the content thereof.


Please notify us immediately, using the support link at the bottom of any page, of any suspected copyright infringement and our copyright team will investigate and take down infringing items asap.

Children under 13

To enable communication with athletes, certain supplemental safety features are in place for users under 13 years of age:

  • only minimal personally identifiable information is collected:
    • name - so we can address them properly when communicating.
    • email - so we can communicate. They cannot make this part of their profile public
    • location only down to the city
  • critical information is secured with several layers of encryption (email, passwords etc)
  • their user name is anonymous and it cannot be changed
  • information is not shared by us with any 3rd parties - note that advertisers may collect their own information, from your browser only, independent of this website, read more in our Privacy Policy
  • a parent account is created and verified. The parent can control what the child can do on this site. The parent can choose to be notified of the child's activity, including a "Private" mode - where the child cannot make any information public
  • comments and all their activity is fully moderated
  • club coaches can message athletes


There may exist some risks arising from using this website with "Public" access. The child may inadvertently reveal some information you wished he didn't. As a parent, you have the option to be notified and you can ask him/her to correct that.

As with other public sites, a lot of information about the users may be revealed, such as favorite sports, clubs, events they will attend...

While we are actively monitoring and moderating all content on this site, by both auto-bots and staff, there are certain delays in moderating content. Some content may fall through the cvraks (<- like this one).

Certainly, with the recent hacking scandals of even credit card companies and banks, we cannot offer a complete guarantee that your information will never fall into the wrong hands, but we can certainly promise to do everything we can to secure it... and that's not a small thing! We use several firewalls, several layers of encryption and other methods to safeguard all information on our servers.

There are perhaps other, unforeseen risks as well.

More terms

You should not rely on this website to provide any critical services - while we certainly take good care to keep this website up an functioning in good order, we cannot guarantee that it will be up and running great at all times, with our current infrastructure.
