Even if you're a black diamond expert, these tips from Budget Travel can make your next trip more enjoyable:

  1. Get in shape. Yoga is especially good for working the whole body.
  2. Most airlines will allow you to count a ski bag as one of your checked bags.
  3. Avoid dealing with tire chains: Reserve a vehicle with four-wheel drive or snow tires.

  1. Acclimate yourself to the climate by taking a walk or run the first day.
  2. Call ahead and reserve demo skis.
  3. Invest in proper ski socks, and apply antiperspirant before putting them on.
  4. Save your brain: Buy a helmet. 
  5. Take a tour to scope out the resort and find the best runs.
  6. Don't take a hard run late in the day.
