A Week in the Snow
Strong arms help with pole-planting and will make traversing across the snow easier. Snowboarders: increased arm strength helps with balance and stability and can save you from a fall. Strong arm muscles will help you pick yourself up in the event of a fall, and, once a qualified instructor increased strength in your arms helps you to assist students who may have had a tumble.
Strong abdominal and lower back muscles help to support your spine on the slopes, this is especially important when skiing or snowboarding down moguls, steeps or in deep snow. Having a strong core will help maintain balance on the mountain, the abdominals and hip musculature are there for one of the most important muscle groups for any snow-enthuiast to focus on.
Whilst skiing, your body is in a flexed, bent over position so your back has to work really hard to protect your spine from injury — a strong, well conditioned core is key. The same is true for snowboarding, especially with all the turning required.
A weak core will open up a lot of problems, especially for the spine, so we really need to build strength in our core and back to prevent this from happening. Both skiing and snowboarding require strong balance to remain an upright position whilst speeding downhill. A winter athlete with strong balance is also less likely to sustain an injury as the risk of falling is decreased.
Balance can be trained by performing single leg activities such as squats and heel raises. Agility is also important for winter sports due to the need for the body to constantly adjust to changes in direction at varying speeds.
