Ski Conditioning Tips

Are you still thinking about getting in shape for the ski season? Doing a little training before the season starts is invaluable for a more enjoyable experience during your first days on the slopes. Starting the season that way is what most professional and recreational skiers do.




If you need some guidance and encouragement, in the Salt Lake Valley, the University of Utah offers ski conditioning classes that are taught through the orthopedic center. Friends who have participated in these classes have commented on their effectiveness and the quality of the instructors. Their web page also has ski-related articles and tips.
