It shouldn’t be. If you learn in the right area, on a shallow beginners slope with the help of an instructor, learning to ski doesn’t need to be dangerous at all. It is always worth being aware of your surroundings and being vocal about your comfort zones. There are other people on the mountain too, so you need to keep an eye on what’s going on around you. Learning to ski without an instructor is more dangerous; an experienced instructor will help keep you safe and progress in the right way.
