Skiers advised: Build up your stamina

Date Posted: 20th Nov 2007

As Britons gear up for their European ski holidays, they are being advised to get in shape before they hit the slopes.

The advice comes from Halifax, which notes that a third of British skiers believed themselves to be out of condition when they took to the pistes last year.

Most of the skiers questioned claimed that the switch to high impact activity became noticeably painful on the third day of skiing.

"A few months of pre-holiday training can help you to cope with the strain of winter sports, as well as to build up your stamina," commented Paul Birkhead, Senior Manager of Pricing and Underwriting for Halifax Travel Insurance.

He added that holidaymakers who do not find time to train before their ski holiday should be aware of their limits and ensure they take breaks, "to help their body recover".

The advice comes after it was revealed that Verbier opened for skiing this weekend.
