Step 7: Flexibility

Fitness

Do you have range of motion? We won't take time for a stretching sermon here. You know that incorporating even a few stretches into your slope-day prep will ward off injury and boost your performance.

Step 2: Strength

Fitness

Can you handle the force of a ski turn? You don't need tree-trunk thighs to enjoy skiing, but pencil-thin legs won't cut it either.

Step 4: Balance

Fitness

Can you stay upright? Good balance can help you keep your form when you encounter changing terrain and snow conditions. The result? Better skiing and fewer spills.

Step 5: Anaerobic

Fitness

Can you handle a black-diamond trail? Skiing requires short bursts of intense effort. This test uses a common skiing motion to see how well you can sustain those bursts.
