Whether you are a veteran skier or a first timer, being prepared for the slopes is a must. Keeping fit all year round is not always on the agenda for everyone, so a bit of prep before the mountains beckon will make all the difference to your holiday. So what can you do before you go?

Whether you are a veteran skier or a first timer, being prepared for the slopes is a must. Keeping fit all year round is not always on the agenda for everyone, so a bit of prep before the mountains beckon will makeall the difference to your holiday. So what can you do before you go?

  • 1.Indoor ski slopes.
  • From snow plough to parallels, getting the lingo and understanding the moves will make your holiday far more entertaining.  Visit a giant UK fridge, as this is essentially what they are, before you go and top up on some lessons. They are obviously much shorter than the runs you will be experiencing in Meribel, however practising turns and feeling comfortable in ski boots and skis will make your experience that much better.  Knowing the equipment and how to get in and out of it, will save time and effort when you are at your destination.
  • 2.Watch videos.
  • You Tube and other social media channels are fantastic for getting a splice of the action, you can play and replay until every move is seared in your memory. It may not be possible to translate these moves immediately on the slopes, but having an idea of what you can do is exhilarating more than anything else. Spectre, the latest James Bond movie is a must watch, purely for the adrenalin buzz and inspiration it offers fellow skiers.
