Glade skiing should only be tried if you are an expert skier. Taking skies into the woods has its hazards and is not for the faint hearted. Due to the woody terrain, glade areas are less patrolled so itês advisable to go in a group. Having to make sharp turns and handle all types of snow means that you require a lot of skill and expertise. There is a demand for this type of skiing and most ski resorts now have marked glade skiing areas for those wanting to take their skis off piste. .
