Ski Fitness

Ski resorts are of course at a higher altitude than you are used to, this has some effects on your body while in resort. You may suffer from dehydration more easily so drink plenty of fluids (non alcoholic!) to reduce risk of headache and tiredness through the day (especially in the morning!).

Be as FIT AS YOU CAN BE for your holiday and you will be able to squeeze more out of it. Skiing is quite a demanding sport, and there is nothing worse than sore muscles on what should be a holiday! When possible before your holiday exercise as much as you can, walk or cycle instead of taking the car, go swimming or something STEADY to build a little bit of base level aerobic fitness. This will help your body to become more efficient at caring vital oxygen to your muscles.

On top of this we would recommend that you visit the gym and gain some strength and stability (the best way would be to seek the advice from the personal trainer team to design a program to prepare you for skiing and suited to your level of fitness) An other way to gain some strength and stability is to join a Pilates class - this is an excellent way to build up some core strength and stability that really will benefit you skiing.

The best advice would always be to ease into your holiday and not over do it on the first day!
