Get Ready For The Slopes and Snow Holidays

Oct 13, 2017

ski snowThe end of 2018 is fast approaching, and we’re already seeing people full of excitement about their upcoming snow holidays for the end of the year and into 2019.

Each and every year we get panicked phone calls from people with injuries that have niggled on for months, who are off on their snow holidays in the next few days. We do our best to help however we can, but the human body needs time and investment to perform at it’s best, so we can’t work miracles overnight!

Skiing and snow boarding are very physically demanding. These holidays involve an intense period of activity. They are also precious time away with friends and family and don’t come cheap! So, you need to make sure your body can cope with the demands so you can really make the most of your holiday!

Our top tips

  1. Get any ongoing or niggling injuries sorted now. Don’t wait until the week before you go away. There can be very simple and effective ways of resolving injuries once you know what’s going on and have a personalised recovery plan. The ‘wait and see’ approach can sometimes pay off, but if you have a physical challenge coming up, ask yourself is it worth risking it?
  2. Think about starting Pilates. Taking part in a few months of Pilates can have a massive impact on your strength, stability and movement control. Read more about the benefit of Pilates for winter sports here. 
  3. Do some specific strength and conditioning work to make sure you’re fit for the slopes. If you want a customised, specific programme, think about our small group rehab sessions with our Sports Therapy team. We have specific skiing and snowboarding sessions led by skiing expert Chris.
