15 Feb 2019

The sun is beginning to creep out of hiding, and so are our thoughts of holidays and what we will do with the year! Make this year a different one by branching out and learning to ski.

Not feeling convinced yet? Here are 5 reasons why you should!

  1. A chance to learn a new skill

You are never too old to learn something new! Life is an adventure that should always be full of excitement, introduce some fun into your life this year by learning a new skill! Not only will it give you a physical workout, but the learning process will give you a mental workout, something most people probably haven’t experienced since their educational days!

  1. Experience a new type of holiday

Your ability to ski opens up a different type of holiday experience, we all enjoy a holiday in the sun, however change is nice! Trade sandy beaches for the slopes enjoying your new skill. There is more to skiing holidays than just the physical side, why not take a day off to go husky-sledging or just simply take in the views? Worried about what you can do in the evening? Not to worry, you can socialise at the ski clubs!

  1. A more enjoyable way to get active

Skiing is a great way to get some physical exercise. Exercise doesn’t always have to be dull, you will be getting a great workout skiing without even realizing because you’re having so much fun!

  1. Relaxation

The obvious benefit would be that skiing is a great way to keep fit, however have you considered the mental health benefits? It would be pretty hard to think about your problems whilst taking in the breathtaking views at the top of a mountain!

  1. Spend more time outdoors

Learning to ski will make you appreciate the outdoors and dread the winter months a little bit less! The thought of enjoying a sport in the snow will completely change your attitude towards winter, there is a myth about people shivering up mountains when on skiing trips but this couldn’t be further from the truth! Have you ever been on a run during the winter and been shivering? No, this is because you are partaking in physical activity, the same as you will be whilst skiing! Learn to love the snow!

You won’t believe the sense of achievement you will feel when you have finally mastered skiing, what are you waiting for?
