The Legs Feed the Wolf

Ski season is just around the corner, and at least here in Colorado, A-Basin and Loveland are already open for business. As you're getting your gear tuned up and ready to rock and roll, it's important to get yourself in shape too. Anyone who has ever skied or boarded in powder knows that it chews your legs up. It's hard work, and your body gets tired long before your mind is ready to call it a day. Being in good shape also helps you stay healthy and avoid unnecessary trips to the doc. 

Whether you're a seasoned pro or just getting started playing on snow, I think you'll appreciate this article from Outside Online: Former Freeskiing World Tour Champ Crystal Wright demonstrates seven great fitness moves you can use to get those legs ready to take on the slopes. If you follow her advice, you'll be guaranteed ready to shred from first chair to closing time. Cheers!
