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.
