Preparing your body for a ski holiday

Six super ski exercises to get your body into shape and help you get the best out of your time on the slopes

For experienced skiers

Hitting the slopes this year? If it’s the first time in a while, you’ll probably be a little rusty, especially as you’ll need to use some unfamiliar muscles. So, how do you physically prepare for a skiing holiday and what are the best stretches to help avoid injuries when on the slopes?

Firstly there is no substitute for actually skiing. Throughout Switzerland there are many close-by slopes where you can regain your ski legs over a weekend. For those of you who already know how to ski it would be an excellent idea to quickly test the snow before you get to the mountains for a weeks holiday. So that upon arrival you can head straight up the mountain.
