Winter is on its way!

Take a look at what I woke up to this morning …

Isn’t that just amazing!  With summer and fall being such gorgeous times to be in Steamboat and Routt County, it’s tough this time of year knowing that winter is soon to follow.  But seeing all the snow this morning was just the reminder I needed on why…

Winter Training Tips by 3-time Olympian Caroline Lalive: Session 2

Here is week 2 of our countdown to winter, and what better motivator to get your body in shape for the season than new snow. Steamboat reported 5" at mid-mountain this morning and snow flurries are possible throughout the remainder of the day.  It's a great reminder that the season is right around the corner and it's time to get more ski/snowboard specific in our workouts and movements.

Like I mentioned in the first week, we're trying to minimize that initial shock when we first get…

It's snowing!! Are You Ready?

Here is week 2 of our countdown to winter.

It's time to get more ski/snowboard specific in our workouts and movements.

Like I mentioned in the first week, we're trying to minimize that initial shock when we first get on snow. You will be ahead of the game and ready to rip in no time.

 

After our previous round of strength, we are going to do some interval training. These are meant to get your heart rate and body prepared for increased intensity. Similar to a run…

Steamboat with a toddler - pre-trip blog

I thought that I would start my blog now, since we will be travelling this season with our “just 2 year old” (incase I don’t have too much spare time whilst we are in Steamboat!).

Husband and I have been fairly long term visitors to Steamboat. This will be our second trip with Jnr: the first (last February) he was just a year old. This year Jnr is a lot more mobile (he…

Winter Training Tips By 3-Time Olympian Caroline Lalive: Session 1

The weather has changed and winter is fast approaching! Are you ready to rip?

I've always noticed that the first few days of skiing really kill my legs! Why is that? I have trained most my life for this and it still hurts! What gives?

Simple, skiing uses muscles and movements that are pretty hard to train without actually skiing. There is hope though...try to incorporate skiing/snowboarding specific moves into your workout routine and it will minimize that initial burnout.…
