How Summer in a Ski Resort Will Improve Your Skiing

The benefits of a summer holiday in a ski resort go way beyond fitness!

What? You’ve never seen the mountains green? You’re missing out! A woman once said, “Everyone should spend a summer holiday in a ski resort.” That woman was me.

I guarantee that the slopes in summer will offer at least as many thrills as they do in winter, the same stunning scenery – and wonderful wildlife if you’re lucky. Not only that, taking your summer holidays in a winter wonderland will help you to make the most of your time on the snow, perhaps in ways that you have never considered.

The Indren Inversion. Sounds like something out of The Big Bang Theory!

The gods seemed to be against me this morning. We looked out of the window and saw – nothing! The mist was right down to the bottom of the mountain. Mark decided not to ski today. He was shattered and his back and neck were really painful from his rather heavy fall on Tuesday.

I think that the emotion of of leaving the pups for another full day also played a part. I can understand that. I felt exactly the same way! Continue reading “Tales from the Back Country. Team Kathy & the Indren Inversion.”
