New guidelines to avoid accidents

Until now there have been no standards set for the building and maintenance of snowparks in Swiss ski resorts. Skiers and snowboarders frequently misjudge their own abilities and the difficulty of jumps and obstacles. If these are not built properly it can result in serious injuries. The Swiss Council for Accident Prevention has now drawn up new guidelines to make the use of snowparks safer. (Julie Hunt/swissinfo.ch)
