Shred the Slopes Not Your Body
Are you planning or have already booked a trip to the slopes? If so, are you prepared? We are not referring to your purchase of the latest ‘look’ to cruise the slopes in style or sussing out the best Apres ski spots. We are referring to you – your body, is it prepared and ready to take on the physical demands of skiing or snowboarding to return home without a plaster or crutches? Alpine skiing and snowboarding are classified as extreme sports due to the involvement of high speeds and an increased propensity for participants to jump and perform acrobatic maneuvers (as seen on TV, seemingly easy, yet another story when you the amateur attempt them). There is an increasing involvement in these winter sports, with nearly 1 million people from the UK skiing or boarding annually.
