Winter Precautionary Measures


The snow is deep and skies are blue. It’s another perfect day on the Wasatch Back. Welcome to Adventure club

Whether you live here or are just visiting, Park City is the winter playground. We know how to play in the snow; whether by ski or sleigh, snowboard or snow machine. You’ll run out of time and energy before you run out of things to do here.



What’s first on the list? Probably skiing or riding the “Greatest Snow on Earth.” We have two classic ski resorts, each with its own style. Park City Mountain Resort is the largest ski resort in the country and will challenge even the toughest skiers and riders. Deer Valley Resort has runs on five mountains, with glades and chutes along with award-winning grooming and fine dining on the mountain.

In winter we have agreat adventures like

  • Ice skating
  • Snowing
  • Camping etc

But we have to keep save in this time so,

Winter safety tips for the snow


  • Wear warm clothes that may be adjusted as needed in case the weather changes.
  • Protect your head, hands, and face by donning a helmet, gloves, goggles, and a scarf.
  • Never push yourself over your competence level on skis or a snowboard. If you find yourself getting tired, it’s time to stop for the day.
  • Skiing and snowboarding are more fun when you’re reasonably fit, and keeping up with your workouts can help prevent injuries.
  • Even on an overcast day, sunburn is likely to occur on the snow, therefore it is important to protect yourself with a broad-spectrum sunscreen or zinc oxide.
  • Lip balm should be carried and used often to avoid chapped and windburned lips.
  • Eat a healthy breakfast of protein and carbohydrates and stay away from the fatty, fatty things. Bring some food along in case you become hungry while out running.
  • Be sure to drink plenty of water and stay away from the booze.
  • Do some little stretching and self-massage to unwind your muscles there at end of a long day. Get to know the resort’s sauna and warm pool like new friends.

Winter weather conditions

There will be good days and poor days anywhere you travel to ski or snowboard, whether it’s North America, Zealand, Japan, or Europe. Conditions might quickly deteriorate due to factors such as fog, severe gusts, or heavy snowfall, reducing visibility to dangerously low levels.


  • The quality of ice tends to improve with decreasing temperatures, and vice versa, so it’s important to follow the advise of resort employees and keep tabs on local forecasts for both temperature and snowfall. Rapid temperature dips may indicate an impending weather shift, so keep an eye out.
  • When inclement weather approaches when you’re up there, things can turn quickly. Get moving in the direction of the closest elevator so you can get down as quickly as feasible.
  • Wet snow gear freezes quickly, so if you plan on being out on the mountain during the day, it’s best to head back down before you get trapped in the cold.

Safety at night in the snow


After dark, ski resorts are just as lively as they were during the day. Many ski areas also provide snow shoeing and riding, as well as a thriving nightlife complete with live music, premature pubs, and inexpensive drinks. Here are some safety measures to take:

  • Whenever feasible, go out in a group; there is safety in numbers.
  • Put on your winter jacket or something warm; the temperature drops dramatically at night.
  • Drinking alcohol at a higher elevation will have a more pronounced effect and cause intoxication more quickly. Take it slow and don’t overdo it with the booze.
  • If you must walk back to your hotel, be sure you are familiar with the route. There are always tragic cases of intoxicated persons who get stuck in the snow and die from exposure or worse during the winter months.

Driving safely in winter

Icy roads make winter driving dangerous, therefore it’s crucial to be well-prepared. Visibility can be low and the roads can become quite slippery.


  • Make sure you car is in working order before you leave the house. Have you checked the battery? How much air pressure do the tyres have? How effective are your windscreen wipers? Is it possible to use the air conditioner to clear the windscreen of fog?
  • Whether you plan on driving a rented vehicle this winter, it’s a good idea to find out if there are any special regulations in place. To what extent do you feel obligated to use your low beams when driving? I was wondering if snow tyres or chains were required.
  • In any weather, you should always adjust your driving accordingly. It’s possible that the road has black ice, so you shouldn’t drive too quickly or slam on the brakes. Drive smoothly over turns and curves, and give yourself lots of room between yourselves and the car in front of you in case they have to brake unexpectedly.
  • Plan for extra time for the journey from point A to point B. You should take it easy behind the wheel in the snow.
  • During the winter months, if your vehicle does not have four-wheel drive, you will need snow chains. For more information, contact the car rental agency or the local transportation department.
  • Don’t go behind the wheel when it’s becoming dark out. The fog makes it harder to see, and you could even encounter some wildlife.
  • Long-distance road trips necessitate the transportation of extra supplies, including food, water, bedding, and a lantern with extra batteries. In case it’s a while until you can refuel, it’s smart to carry a full gas can on hand. Reduce weariness by splitting up the driving duties, if at all possible.
  • Always have a fully charged phone and a portable charger on hand. Since there is no cell phone service, a locating beacon should be carried by drivers.

Oman tour tips

In spite of its precarious location, which makes regular headlines throughout the world, Oman remains among the Middle East’s safest countries.

The Sultanate of Oman is a welcoming and secure destination, but there are a few things you should know about the legislation and safety precautions before you arrive.

  • Violence in Oman
  • Omani Laws
  • Terrorism
  • Oman’s Politics


Is Oman dangerous for travelers?

Oman is a prosperous Middle Eastern nation with a highly codified set of moral and legal standards. While most Omanis are calm and courteous, the country’s strict criminal justice system makes it difficult to commit a crime. Unfortunately, there have been instances of assaults against ladies and individuals camping in remote areas at night, and some tourists have been the victims of petty crimes.

Observe common sense and make sure your belongings are secure. It is especially important for women to use caution when travelling alone, especially at night, and to use public transportation such as a taxi instead than walking.

Essential Oman Laws that Visitors Should Know

The Sultan of Oman rules with total power as the head of an absolute monarchy. Islamic Sharia law has played an important role in the development of Oman’s legal system.

Respect local customs and dress modestly. During religious celebrations like Ramadan, this is of utmost significance.


  • Both possession and trafficking of illegal narcotics carry harsh punishments, up and including the death sentence in Oman. Possession of even a tiny amount for personal a can result in a prison sentence of at least a year.
  • Photography

Do not take pictures of airports or government buildings. Make sure to get permission from locals before taking their pictures.

  • Oman’s Drone Regulations

It is illegal to fly a drone in Oman for recreational purposes, and doing so carries a minimum sentence of three years behind bars. Several occurrences using hobby drones flying too closely to airport equipment and flight paths prompted the Omani government to enact this regulation.

  • The French phrase “Lese majeste”

Insulting the Omani ruling family, the government, or any of its officials is a crime.

  • Oman’s homosexual population

Being gay is punishable by up to 30 months in prison in Oman. Ultimately, the death sentence is used as a last resort.

Terrorism in Oman

Several Gulf states, including Yemen, have been targets of terrorist attacks orchestrated by organisations based on the Arabian Peninsula. These organisations include Al Qaeda and Daesh. Terrorist attacks are less likely to occur in Oman than in other Gulf states, although they could still happen. It’s possible that attacks will be random and not specifically aimed at tourist spots or embassies.

Always keep an eye on government travel warnings, news, and reports.

Get Ready To Enjoy The Great Outdoors!

It’s tempting to hibernate during the colder months. However, you and your loved ones might be interested in participating in winter sports. Take these precautions against hypothermia, frostbite, and other winter-related problems when you do:

  • Put on a windbreaker, some waterproof boots, a warm coat, a hat, socks, and a scarf.
  • Take your time when performing outdoor chores like shovelling the driveway or clearing the car of snow.
  • When venturing outside, it’s a good idea to bring a friend and a fully charged cell phone.

Prevent Falls This Winter

People tend to congregate indoors when it begins to rain or snow. In fact, among people aged 45 and up, falls are the largest cause of nonfatal injuries. Follow these winter safety guidelines to avoid a catastrophic accident:

  1. Choose the right shoe. Properly fitting shoes and boots with grippy soles are a must. In extreme conditions, the ideal footwear to wear is snow gloves or hiking boots.
  2. Get going before the rest of the group. It’s more likely that you’ll trip and fall if you’re in a hurry. Give yourself a lot of time to reach your destination.
  3. Do the penguin waddle. When walking on ice or slippery surfaces, it is best to take short, flat steps.
  4. Don’t tie your hands up. If you want to preserve your equilibrium, you should avoid carrying heavy objects and put your hands in your pockets.
  5. Walkways should be kept clear of snow and ice on a regular basis. You should not waited for it to dissolve. It may take some time to accomplish that. Use ice melt and get assistance if necessary.
  6. Don’t turn off the lights! Turn on your outside lights so you can see where you’re going in the dark.
  7. Support those who are looking out for your wellbeing. Let someone know if the walkways or entrances to a store or other establishment seem unsafe.


Keep a Charged Phone With You

If you’re out and about in the snow, whether walking, driving, or playing, remember to have your cell phone charged in case of an emergency. A fully charged cell phone should always be carried by you or anyone else you may be with when going out, in case of need.
