Mid-Week Skiing with Gary Schorr
The ski season is over but when it returns, those of us who are retired (and those who can take time off from work) enjoy going to our "local" ski areas on weekdays throughout the ski season. We meet at 6am in Christopher Morley Park, just off exit 36 of the LIE, and carpool to several areas upstate including Hunter, Windham, Belleayre, and Catamount. We've also gone to Camelback and Blue Mountain in the Poconos. Come to one of our meetings to sign up for notices of these mid-week ski day trips, or contact Gary at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Get in Shape for the Ski Season: 6-Week Plan
by Jessica Osterloh - Ski 'N Ski, Ski N Board Shops (dated October 9, 2014)
Although the ski season has passed, keep your body ready during the off-season. Cross-training your body for skiing will give you more strength on the mountain and can help prevent injuries. See the following link: Six-Week Plan for a step-by-step program.
