Does your Helmet need to be replaced?
helmetWhile you are dreaming of our upcoming ski trips to Aspen/Snowmass, Zermatt/Barcelona, Steamboat and Big Snow (Indianhead/ Blackjack), now is a good time to take a close look at your ski equipment.

What needs to be replaced? Your helmet is one of the most important pieces of ski equipment to keep you safe. According to experts, your helmet should be replaced every five years. If your helmet is older, be sure to replace it before the upcoming ski season begins.



Staying Fit for Skiing During the Offseason
For any avid skier, the primary benefit of staying fit during the offseason comes in being able to spend full days on the mountain as early in the season as possible. Here’s a suggestion of one way to stay in “ski” shape while waiting for the lifts to start operating again.

Skiing is the culmination of many different elements, including weather, equipment and, of course, physical ability. Powerful legs and a strong abdomen are key to putting in a full day on the slopes and wrapping up the day with essentially the same amount of energy as you had when it started.

Riding a bike during the offseason is an excellent way to keep these muscles toned, limber and strong. Fortunately, for Vagabond skiers, we offer a weekly bike ride to help you keep in shape during the summer months. Check out the weekly bike schedule and be sure to join in!
