Ski equipment is expensive! Seems like resorts would make good targets, not bad ones.

I don't ski much any more, but when I went skiing, even before I started carrying, I wore a fanny pack. One of the most useful pieces of equipment you can get. Carry your car keys, money, suntan lotion, snacks, wax, gun and magazines.
Nobody will think twice about it....

I hadn't thought of a fanny pack, but it's a pretty good idea. It's true that it wouldn't be out of place on the slopes and wouldn't draw any looks there. Couldn't get away with it around town without some fruity comments, but it should be just fine during athletic endeavors. Would probably work while biking also.

I always carry when I cross country ski. The two best methods; a walk man type chest carrier that I carry a Glock 27 in. I can still get my finger in the trigger with my ski gloves on with the Glock 27, an important consideration. I wear it under my coat in cold weather and wear the chest pack exposed in warmer weather. I have some prop ear phones hanging out of it to make it appear that it is truly a music listening device. It looks kind of retro, but I'm a retro guy to begin with, so it doesn't seem out of place. The other is the ubiquitous fanny pack, worn to the front and slightly left of center. The pack should be as small as possible and yet accommodate the Glock 27, ( or other small frame gun), and not print. My fanny pack has a smaller front packet on it that can hold gum, chapstick etc., which I regularly open, so it looks utilitarian enough and other people don't think twice about it being only a gear stuffer. In the winter back country, you're not going to run into too many animals, just the two legged ones at parking lots or trail heads.
