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 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. For those of you who already know how to ski, it would be an excellent idea to regain your ski legs on your home terrain or indoor ski slopes before you get to the mountains, so that upon arrival you can head straight up the mountain slopes and feel straight at home on your skis.
