3. DO: Give your parents the camera.

ESSENTIAL DO'S AND DONT'S TO HELP YOU SURVIVE A FAMILY HOLIDAY

A classic parental shot of Hayley taken by her mum – nowhere near the obstacle and plenty of white space!

Unless you’re fortunate enough to be besties with Matt Georges, or Jérôme Tanon, your mates are probably going to be a bit reluctant to shoot you. Let’s face it, your sketchy indy grab isn’t exactly gonna get them a cover, and you’ll never convince your mates that cameras aren’t bulky, heavy and liable to stop them from throwing tricks of their own.

Parents are a different story. Mums love taking photos of dogs and nature. Seize the opportunity and pass the camera over to the willing recipient during a tree-run. Although be warned, if you do venture into a snow park, do expect a lot of photos of you on the run up and the landing, as opposed to on the actual obstacle in question.
