    Yes you can take your DSLR with you. Are you comfortable with skiing? Your safety and people around you is foremost important, so you don't want to be carrying extra stuff if you're still new to skiing. If you're a proficient skier, you could bring a dslr, and it can give you some great shots. But if you're worried about falling and breaking your equipement, just bring your PNS. Just be mindful of when you bring your camera back in from the cold, don't take the lens cap off, right away or else you'll get condensation build up. Oh, if the weather is crap, you probably want to leave the DSLR in the hotel room...

    If you have a day of skiing, it does not sound like you have clocked much time skiing.
    If I am right, then bring a P n S. You may fall a lot, and a heavy item on you will worsen your balance.
    When you fall you don't want to break your camera, or injure yourself.

    Also, make sure you have gloves which work with the camera, otherwise if you need to remove them to shoot, it could get rather cold.

    Enjoy the snow.

    Cheers.

    hahah Yes it does sound that you might not be proficient in skiing.

    I recommend a point and shoot. to fall on your DSLR is not funny. I usually keep my PNS in my jacket, so whenever I am skiing I just take it out and snap. Much easier. Canon seems to have a cute all weather on http://www.canon.com.sg/p/EN/1-Digit...PowerShot-D10/
