50 Ways to Stay Well #7- Skiing/snowboarding

Skiing and snowboarding are challenging and fun activities to get you outside on a cold winter day. There are many health benefits to these sports including;

  • improves the effectiveness of your cardiovascular system
  • snowboarding & skiing strengthen leg, core, and abominable muscles
  • building agility & flexibility
  • increases self confidence
  • improves mental health (gets you outside in the winter)

Locally, we have Castle Mountain, Pass Powderkeg in Blairmore, and Fernie three hours away.

Don’t let the cost deter you! Watch the resorts for specials and deals. In Kanuary they ran the Never Ever Days (Jan 7 & 8) where a rental, beginner lift, and lesson are only $25. Watching for deals is a great way to afford a day on the slopes!

      I love it too but rarely make it out because of time and cost.
