Here you have some good information that I got from a portuguese website: http://www.meganeve.com/viagem17/index.html
I translated the information I felt useful through altavista.com.
I know it has some mistakes since it's a program (not human) that have done it.
Anyway it's better this way than not to have the information, I guess ;)
I will do the translation myself as soon as possible.

Have fun.

SOME GOOD ADVICE FOR WHO IF ADVENTURE FOR THE FIRST TIME

The Ski and the Snowboard are sports practised in high mountain, and that they
demand proper equipment, some physical red tape and some cares in practical its.
We leave thus some related general advice with the mountain and the practical one
of these sports.

Trip of automobile

When travelling for the mountain in automobile we have to have some cares with its
red tape and the type of conduction on Snow, of which we detach:

• Levar always current to place in case to have snow in the floor;
• Levar a Kit substitute of light and triangle of acknowledgment for the carriage,
obligator according to Spanish legislation;
• Fazer a general walk through before the trip;
• Ter always the full deposit when arriving at the base of the mountain;
• not to leave the vehicle if surprised by a blizzard. To be inside of exactly with the
on engine and the heating to work;
• the only height where it will have to leave it I propagate will be for going
unblocking the jet pipe of the involving snow, this because, the carriage will be able
to leave to enter tobacco for inside of the poor dwelling place;
• Levar always a small shovel for the snow.

Conduction on Neve

• Never to make brusque movements;
• Never to stop the deep one;
• When pulling out in hanging place to engage 2ª speed and to pull out very softly;
• Always that possible, to lead for the twirled one left by the other vehicles;
• If to step on ice not bar, leaves propagates it to follow its path;
• Above of everything, to try to keep the calm and to lead with tranquilidade.

Red tape and protection in Neve

It is sufficiently important to make a little of physical red tape before leaving in this
type of vacation. Ginástica of maintenance and strolls of BTT or skids in string are
almost the sufficient.

In The Slots

• Fazer a good muscular heating before the first descendings;
• Avançar for the first descendings with calm, all we know that it is difficult but it
serves as heating.
• In the end of each day to prolongate the muscles well;
• Usar always eyeglasses of solar protection of good quality;
• Usar cream of solar protection, high index, for all the displayed skin;
• During the day to ingest sufficient liquids. The dehydration provoked for practical
of the sport in cause the great altitudes, is upper to the normal one;
• Proteger always the head of the sun.

The Material

For an easy learning and performance in these sports it is basic that if it uses
adequate material to each level, and that this is in good conditions. In this direction
we advise for our experience:

• not to buy material ( Skis and Snowboard ) in a learning phase;
• Informar the monitors or the specialists of the store of material lease which the
level of Ski / Snowboard of each one, so that it is delivers the material most
adequate;
• Never to use two pairs of stockings inside of the boots. They provoke assaduras
and lack of sensitivity in the feet, a pair of stockings not very thick is enough;
• Utilizar clothes of Ski or Snowboard indicated for the effect, that is, has taken,
cómoda, impermeable and with good thermal isolation. The gloves to have to be of
good quality since they are the hand are the first ones to suffer with the cold
provoked for the contact with the snow. With clothes of Ski or Snowboard of quality it is
not necessary to take camisolas, ceroulas or other clothes weighed under exactly.
They will only go to confuse and to provoke a perspiration excess;
• After one day of Ski or Snowboard dries the inward of the boots, but far of the
excess of heat of the radiators;
• During the night does not leave the Ski or the plate of Snowboard close to the
heaters since these can be damaged;
• If has proper material, is indispensable to make a walk through to the level of the
pressure and state of the fixings of security guard of its Ski or the plate of Snowboard
, in the beginning and periodically during the season. The maximum security
depends on these factors.

Learning

Ski or Snowboard is accessible sports, being able exactly to say itself that the basic
slight knowledge to be able itself to enjoy are learned very quickly, the form more
insurance is through the schools of Ski or Snowboard , where the diplomee professors
teach with easiness and security guard, at the same time that they correct the initial
errors and in they provide a last upper-class time to them.
