Ernie Reimer, Strength and Conditioning Coach for the U.S. Ski Team, and alpine athlete Julia Ford take you through a step-by-step introduction to the Ski Team’s Box Clean-Pulls. The exercise builds core power, which is key to strong acceleration out of turns. The video, part of SKI’s fitness series with the U.S. Ski team, was shot at the USSA Center of Excellence, Park City, Utah.
Super foods that will make you super fit this ski season. Garlic anyone?
As you coax your muscles back into ski shape, fueling them well can add heft to your training.

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?

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.
