The air is turning chilly, the leaves are changing colors, and we may even get a flake of snow on the ground. Sure, we are seeing the top of the mountains regaled in the white snow, but ski season isn’t quite here…yet. There are five things you can be doing in the meantime to make sure that you (and your equipment) are ready to go when the resorts open!
Get Your Equipment Ready
Now is the time to get your gear out of storage and get it ready to go. If you are lucky, your board or skis are still in great shape; if not, it’s time to hit the shops that can get them back in tip-top condition.
Replace Worn/Broken Items
Check everything that may be worn out or broken. You don’t want to experience a malfunction or failure on the mountain, so take care of any potential issues now. This includes not only your equipment, but your clothing as well. You don’t want to get to the top of the mountain and find out that your gloves have a hole.
Buy a Season Pass
If you plan on spending a lot of time on those mountains, it’s probably a wise decision to purchase a season pass. Many areas also offer passes that cover several resort areas, such as the Epic Pass. Also, many season passes are discounted before the actual season starts, so you can save a few bucks by purchasing early.
Train! Train! Train!
Get your body in the best ski/board shape possible now. You don’t want to hit the slopes only to find out that you don’t have the stamina to last the whole day. A training program that includes strength and endurance training can help you enjoy the season from the very beginning, and being in shape will also help prevent injuries so you don’t cut the season short.
