A reflection upon legislation, policies, guidelines and practice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper explores on-snow supervision in school-based snowsport excursions by investigating snowsport participation and safety data and relevant legislation and policies that form the framework for practice. Snowsports may present a more complex environment for managing of participants than many other outdoor environments and provide a valuable point of reflection for the management of other outdoor activities where students may be participating without direct supervision.
