  • Weight distribution
  • Body Position and sensory feeling
  • Cardiovascular fitness

Not being ‘ski’ ready can lead to muscular problems due to the intensity of pressure require on knees and joints in the body. Lateral movements are also key in skiing due to the constant change of plane of movement from side to side or forward and back.
