Stuff We Like: Gourmet Jerky

Tasty treats for your jacket pocket that just might make you skip lunch.

For lots of skiers, click out of your bindings and hit the lodge for lunch, and it’s game over. Either you waited so long to eat that you're ravenous and proceed to vacuum your way through the cafeteria into a food coma, or your legs get used to the seated position and refuse to recoup their liveliness and agility.

Stuff We Like: Camelbak Elixir Hydration Tablets

An electrolyte drink to help you hydrate without growing mold in your pack

Stuff We Like: Beyond Coastal Face Stick

Protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays and nasty sunscreen chemicals.

Sunscreen is not sexy stuff, but then neither are raccoon eyes or skin lesions. A good sunblock can save you from ugly tan lines and potentially deadly skin cancer.

Run for Your Lives—Or Your Ski Legs

We don't know if a zombie apocalypse is coming, but we're sure ski season is.

A handful of recent reports about zombie-like attacks have many wondering: Is the zombie apocalypse near? The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released this statement: ”The CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms).” If you want to believe that, go ahead, but don’t say we never warned you.

This version of couple’s therapy isn’t for the faint of heart—or feet.

No one ever said love is easy. It’s all about teamwork, communication and compromise. So perhaps the best way to build a lasting relationship is to push it to the brink. Funny...that's also a great way to get in shape for ski season. Enter the Gore-Tex TransRockies race, a six-day, 120-mile team trail run that starts in Buena Vista, Colo., and ends in Beaver Creek. Inspired by the TransAlpine race—an eight-day event that takes pairs of runners from Germany to Italy—TransRockies isn’t for the faint of heart or weak of feet.

Guidelines for skinny tire travel and training before the lifts crank up.

Many skiers trade their boards for a pair of wheels during the long snowless months of summer.  One part transportation and one part sport, biking is a fun way to keep those legs in shape during the off-season. “The Skier’s Responsibility Code” is posted at the bottom of every chair and on the back of every lift ticket, but you won’t find a similar code on the trails and roads this summer, so we spoke to The League of American Bicyclists and Bicycling Magazine to come up with a few helpful guidelines to keep you and your riding partners safe this summer.

Skiing Makes You Smarter

Skiing Makes You Smarter
October Fitness 2009
Research shows that physical exercise builds up your muscles and your brain.

Good news for skiers: A University of Illinois study suggests that exercise strengthens more than your muscles. It also promotes brain growth. Data collected from the study shows mice that ran increased their brain’s capacity to learn and retain memories while mice that ate well but didn’t exercise did not see brain growth. What does this mean for skiers?
