Unfortunate skiers and boarders have this year often used the help of the ANWB Emergency centre invoked than in previous years. At the emergency center have yet eight hundred skiers reported, that on busy ski slopes, especially injuries to knee, ankle, arm and wrist increased.

In the coming weeks that number will probably still be on, because during spring break, go approximately 400,000 Dutch people in winter.

Next weekend starts spring break in the north of the country. The week after that follow the region’s middle and south. The most popular winter destination is Austria. France is, according to the ANWB, a good second, followed by Germany and Switzerland.

The ANWB points out that winter sports fans that this coming weekend leave, must take into account the long traffic jams. Friday and Saturday expect the ANWB peak times on the roads in France and Germany in the direction of resorts.
