Staying fit for skiing during the offseason:*
The primary benefit of staying fit comes in being able to spend full days on the mountain. Skiing is the culmination of many different elements including weather, equipment and physical ability. Powerful legs and a strong abdomen are key. Riding a bike during the offseason keeps muscles toned, limber and strong. Join in on the weekly Vagabond bike rides to keep yourself in ski shape!
