The good news is that we will be skiing this weekend, the bad news it looks like it is going to be cold…All the better to toughen us up!
10:30 Ready to ski / Core circuit
12:15 Lunch & Free Time
1:00 Skate ski (1 hour)
So a few tips:
A buff or balaclava is necessary, keeps your face warm and you can use it to filter the cold air.
XC ski specific mitts or lobsters that actually fit inside pole straps
Use ‘hotshot’ type toe warmers stuck to the top of your toes over the socks. Merino wool socks are the best. Even better is a thin polypro sock under the Merino wool.
Hand warmers can help but are difficult to keep in place insideof mitts.
We will make every effort to head outside ‘warmed up’ by doing core exercises before heading out.
