Feel the Burn! Go Hiking to Get in Shape for Ski Season

Before winter hits, start working those legs so your quads won’t be shaking after lunch.

Get in shape so you can shred till last chair.

This article is an oldie and goodie from Outside magazines with workout tips from the U.S. ski team!

If hitting up the gym isn’t your style, fear not. One of my favorite ways to get in shape to spend all day on the mountain is to… Hike all day on a mountain! Grab a friend, pack a lunch, and spend all day walking uphill. It’s more fun than it sounds. Plus now is the best time to enjoy the fall leaves, and the burn you feel in your legs now will pay off later.

How do you stay in shape during the off season? If I could, I’d ski year round, but since I can’t I gotta make every day count!
