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.

Are You A Tough Mudder?

Are You A Tough Mudder?
One at a Time
It takes a lot to win this race. A full deck of cards isn't one of them.

Josh Dueck's Incredible Sit-Ski Backflip

Paraplegic skier Josh Dueck amazes and inspires by landing the first-ever sit-ski backflip.

Freeskier Josh Dueck was only 23 years old when he overshot a front flip off a jump at Silver Star, B.C., his home mountain, in 2004. He came to in the hospital to find that he was paralyzed from the waist down, never to ski—traditionally, at least—again. But that wouldn't stop him. Not even close. Nine months later Dueck was back on the slopes in a sit-ski, which he called his freedom chair.

How To Avoid Wrecking Your Next Ski Trip

High-altitude, cocktails, pizza, and physical exertion wont make you feel very well. Here's how to stay healthy and happy on your next ski trip.

Sometimes, the anticipation surrounding a ski trip creates a type of pressure that detonates the first night of vacation. Here’s what happens: arrival in a ski town, off the plane and direct to the slope side hotel. This is immediately followed by an indecent amount of cocktailing and pizza eating with old pals in effort to blow off steam accumulated by wrapping up work projects needed to get away. The next morning – well, ouch. But you drag yourself out of bed, get an extra shot in your coffee, hit the slopes with half-drunk vigor, and chase it all with a couple beers.

Every week, you can use the GymPact app to log your workout commitment: how many days you'll visit the gym (or yoga studio or tennis court or swimming pool) and how much you'll pay if you flake out.
