Ski fitness – Preparing for the ski season.
Focusing on proper ski fitness prior to your ski trip could save endless regrets when you hit the slopes.
Surprisingly, for a sport that is considered to be so dangerous, the statistics on skiing injuries is lower than you might expect.
Typically, there is an injury incidence rate of about 2.5 per 1000 skier days.
So thankfully, as long as you don’t go crazy, you should remain injury free.
However, when they do occur, skiing injuries can be particularly nasty. Torn knee ligaments or dislocated shoulders can cause years of repercussions.
It is best to give yourself the best chance of staying injury free.
And, of course, improving your fitness before skiing will increase your overall enjoyment of your trip anyway.
