Grenoble (France): Skiers are wary but still taking to the slopes where racing great Michael Schumacher suffered a devastating crash.

The local prosecutor is expected to give details today of the investigation into Schumacher`s Dec. 29 accident at the Meribel resort in the French Alps.

Schumacher, the most successful Formula One driver in history, is in a medically induced coma.

Skiers and snowboarders of various ages aren`t staying away from the off-piste zone where he crashed, but say they are aware of the need to be careful.

British tourist Steve Bovill said he always wears a helmet, as Schumacher did. Speaking from the sunny mountainside, he said, "It was an accident that could have happened to anyone."
