Summer Time Blues

I don't know about you guys, but I am totally jonesing for some snow!! We are halfway through the calendar year, so that means a short 5 month wait.

Since I have been thinking about skiing so much lately, I decided to go through some pics from last year. Everyone who say my posts over the winter knows that my main ski buddy is my son Zach, who is now 4. Here we are at the top of the hill just before a run:



We skiied a lot last year. We skiied every Monday from Mid December through most of March, and most weeks we went at least one other day of the week for night skiing. here's what our passes looked like when the season was over. You get one sticker for every day (or night) that you ski. My pass has more stickers because I went a few times with friends from work and didn't take Zach:



We really like the night skiing. Here is a picture of me and Zach at sunset, ready for some sweet runs:



Here's Zach and his mother on one of only a few trips she was able to make with us:



Usually she remained at home to watch after this little princess, who will probably start skiing maybe at the end of this next ski season. She will be almost two by then and should be able to handle it. That is of course if i get the ok from her mother.



I know i have posted some of these pictures before, my apologies for anyone bored by seeing them again!

I have some summer time killers for you. I have been doing alot of working out, ski specific stuff. But the best thing to do on a hot stinkin' summer day is turn on the TV and watch lots of ski porn. I find looking at all that snow cools me down lol. cheers

I hear ya canadian skier! I am in desperate need of some conditioning right now. I have about 3 1/2 months to get my sorry butt in shape. Last season I was conditioned well prior to the season, and I hope to be that way again this season, I just need to get to work!

Thanks for the advice on the ski porn, I need to get a fix somehow!!

OK, I said I would do it and I am. I started my conditioning workouts about a week ago. So far I am just working on cardio and strengthening my legs. I will be into full body conditioning in another week.

I don't really do a skiing specific workout regime, but I do throw in some stuff I learned on this site and others. I big game hunt starting in October, so I have way less time to train for that. I figure that if I can get into good enough shape to hunt the steep stuff all October, then hit my skiing specific exercises from the end of October through early december I will be good to go.

It is the same routine that I used last year and I felt great all season last year.

This is the exact same injury that happened to me before last years ski season, I broke my collarbone playing rugby. It took about 6 - 8 weeks to heal and thankfully it was fine for skiing, however I found that it would hurt sometimes after skiing for long periods of time!

Sorry to hear that canadianskier.

I have been sidelined for the past week or so with a sore knee. Nothing serious, but I want to be safe and so I am trying to limit my physical activity until it feels normal.

Good luck on the rehab.
