Conditioning for Inbounds Skiing
This track is designed to help you get in shape for lift-accessed skiing, whether you’re staying in the resort or heading into the “slack-country”. It includes our signature on-ramping series which progresses through three 2-week phases, advancing from foundational mobility, strength and control work through higher-demand endurance and plyometric-type exercises. We offer a high-impact version and reduced-impact version of this program.
Done in the pre-season, it will have you starting stronger, ready to stay out there longer from day 1 that you hit the slopes. The on-ramp is also a great program for people getting ready for a trip and anticipate ramping up your skiing volume or intensity.
This product also includes our in-season “Skihab” program which provides tools for active recovery such as stretching routines, foam rolling techniques, and a custom yoga flow for winter athletes. There are also suggestions for on-the-slope dynamic warm-ups along with maintenance-exercises to help maintain muscle-balance and supplement the exercise you are getting by doing the sport throughout the winter.

We offer 2 levels of each of our programs, Reduced Impact and High Impact. Choose the level that best suits your activity level.
Reduced Impact Ski Training Program
This program is for the skier or snowboarder who is coming back from a serious injury in the past year or who had pain associated with doing their sport last season (either while doing the activity or within the following day). This program is also appropriate for the skier or snowboarder who prefers riding primarily groomed slopes at low to moderate speeds. It includes mobility exercises, challenging strength and endurance exercises, stability and control work, and light plyometric activities that can be modified to your tolerance-level.
High Impact Ski Training Program
This program is for the skier or snowboarder who does not have any current pain issues from the naval down and has not had any serious injuries in the past year. This program is designed to prepare for the demands of skiing at higher speeds, on uneven terrain, and for jumps and airs. It includes mobility exercises, strength and endurance exercises, stability and control work, ascending-specific exercises, and moderate to high-intensity plyometric activities working up to single-leg and lateral jumping.
