HOW TO PREPARE FOR TSW: THE MIND/BODY/SPIRIT APPROACH

November 21, 2015

1. GET OUT THERE AND ADVENTURE 

When is the last time you watched a sunrise? Escaped the city for a day with your friend? Explored somewhere completely unfamiliar, surrounded by new people? Big or small, adventuring is an important part of human nature and embracing that is a gift only you can give to yourself. By the time you land in the mountains you should be well and truly ready to leave the real world behind for a whole week. It's easy to free your imagination when you find yourself in a new environment. Change your plans, seize the opportunity, give in to spontaneity and lose yourself.

2. EXERCISE YOUR FAVORITE WAY 

The inherent physical demands of a ski trip are no joke, even when you are sleeping at 9000ft+ your body is actually undergoing gentle cardiovascular conditioning. Altitude training is magical stuff. Fast forward to the demands your body might encounter during The Ski Week festival and I promise you it will be more than just lifting beer steins and shot skis (although there will be plenty of that). Be it indoors or out, pool, gym, trail or bedroom, in order to prepare you must get your heart rate racing and keep it there. When you're leaving your crew in the dust during the snowshoe hike you can give yourself a little personal fist bump, your body will thank you for thinking ahead. 

3. SHARE THE STOKE

The last Ski Week apartments are filling up, new ski movie premieres are dropping every day and the mountains are opening one by one. Whether you are going to Aspen, Obertauern, Chamonix or Hakuba, there's nothing like making a few memories before the big trip, so call up your crew list, gather your team and get in the spirit by celebrating the new winter. We'll be doing the same all over the world!
