Colorado has been an iconic ski destination for decades. The fact that it has hosted the Winter X Games for years should be enough to classify Colorado as the go-to destination for ski and snowboard lovers alike.
Whether you’re a ripper or newbie, keep your smile safe on the slopes. Safely shred the “gnar pow,” with these tips:
1. Slalom Racers
Slalom racers move between gates at high speeds. To cut time, athletes take close turns and hit the poles/gates. Chin guards keep athletes’ faces safe, making them an important piece of protective gear for the face and mouth.
Freestylers live to hit the rails or catch big air in the park and need as much oral protection as slalom racers. Since teeth can exert pressure that is equivalent to 500 pounds per square inch while clenching, just think of the amount of pressure freestylers experience. Using a mouthguard can help prevent cracked teeth.
For lodgers, staying cozy with cocoa and cocktails in hand is all in a day’s work. To keep that socializing smile bright, opt for lighter drinks to prevent staining.
Whether you’re at Aspen Snowmass or Keystone, we hope you’re protecting your smile. Use the proper gear and check out our blog with tooth-friendly tips during the cold.
