Getting fit for In The Snow

With just 5 weeks until Innovation In The Snow its time to start thinking about preparing yourself for spending days on the slopes and nights in the raves. Skiing or boarding is a physical activity, and to get the most out of it would help to have a basic level of fitness to stop your legs from hurting too much and to minimise the chance of injuring yourself. It is easy to overlook just how physical a whole days skiing can be. Even with a lengthy lunch stop an average day on the slopes will deliver between 4 and 6 hours of sustained physical activity. Of course the ski lifts give you a chance to recover, but the higher the altitude the longer that will take. If you really want to ski longer, harder and safer, you will need to create a ski fitness programme that includes:

  • Endurance
  • Strength
  • Flexibility

There are plenty of workout plans online, as rave promoters we are massively under qualified to advise you of specific exercise plans, but try and find a way of training that you enjoy so you will be more likely to stick with it. Cycling is the favoured method of aerobic training for World Cup skiers and is a great way to replicate the fitness needed for skiing or snowboarding. Ask in your local gym or search Google for a specific ski fitness programme. Packages are still available for Innovation In The Snow. We have limited availability for 2 person rooms, also our 7 & 8 bed allocations have now sold out.
