One great joy of winter sports is getting your skis or snowboard out on fresh, untouched snow - and if this is something you'd like to experience, then why not sign up for an early morning ski session on your next visit to Obergurgl?
The 2017 Arlberg Eagle competition kicks off at the end of April with The White Thrill on April 22nd. The 9km ski race is the first competition of the challenging triathlon, and it gives participants the chance to tame the "monster" Valluga run in St Anton. The 9km race route travels from Valluga to Valfagehrjoch, Ulmerhutte and Moos before arriving back in St Anton. At the end of the race, participants will be given a finishing present and are invited to a pasta party to celebrate the event.
If you want to watch some of the world's best Telemark skiers take to the pistes, then head to La Plagne for the Telemark World Championships.
The event will be held across several areas of the resort from Tuesday, March 14th until Saturday the 19th.
Whether you're looking to warm up your muscles and stretch out before hitting the slopes in the morning, or you're looking for a way to reduce soreness and unwind after an exciting day on the mountain, yoga is a great option. This activity has become popular among skiers and snowboarders and, when coupled with the fresh air and beautiful mountain scenery, it's a truly wonderful way to relax.
There are many theories about the best way to learn to ski. Most of us are probably familiar with the old chips-and-pizza method of teaching kids how to position their skis. Chips to go faster, pizza to slow down and stop.
