Re: Skiing in Zermatt

The easiest way to carry your skis is on your shoulder. You want the tips pointing forward and the bindings just behind your shoulder. Rest your arm (from the same shoulder) on the front part of the skis so that a little pressure down raises the back of the skis above the heads of those around you. In this position it is quite effortless and saves you from Newbie mistakes.
Iím sorry I have a different opinion here but when I learned to ski I was told never to do this. Of course - the number of times I have been whacked or almost been whacked by someone carrying skis like that, especially newbies! I try to keep 2m away from people carrying skis like that but in queues they tend to sneak up on me!
