On the Piste
When you are on the piste, you will also have to work to be able to maintain a level of fitness and ensure you do not hurt yourself. Your fitness level on the slopes should be as important as the need to keep warm as if it is not you could become injured or not have a high enough fitness level to tackle certain runs.
Always make sure you warm up before a ski run as it’s important for the preservation of your muscles. Pushing yourself into an array of stretches on both your core and lower body will significantly aid your overall ability to pull off the run whilst at the same time preventing you pulling a muscle or causing yourself an injury. These precautions will give you less chance of returning home early injured from your ski run.
