Schools are back and Bake Off is in full swing. All of which means it’s time to face the facts. We can pretty much bid summer a fond farewell. And yet we’ve still got weeks to kill before the snow starts to fall, our first resort opens and winter rears it’s snowy head once more. So, if you’ve already secured your job and you have nothing much else to do other than count down the days, here’s a few things you can do to wile away the hours. #winteriscoming…. But not soon enough!
Waiting for Winter…
1. Knit some winter woolies
2. Watch ski movies
On repeat. Until your friends, family or housemates can recite all the words of each soundtrack. We’re eagerly awaiting this season’s Matchstick Productions movie Fade to Winter…
3. Start eating your body weight in cheese
Not only will this build your calcium levels and encourage strong bones. Plus, you’ll be in training for the onslaught of melted goodies which accompanies every ski holiday!
4. Make some sloe gin
Everyone’s favourite winter warmer to warm your cockles on cold days on the hill. And it’s super easy to make!
5. Start your ski fitness regime
If the thought of wall sits brings you out in sweats then join the club. Although we reckon a game of hungry hippos could be a great start. Core strength is very important don’t you know when you’re on the hill….
6. Start practicing
OK, so we’re not all freestyle pros. And most don’t aspire to be. But in the absence of the white stuff we quite fancy a day on the trampolining circuit like the GB Freeski team did in this little clip…
7. Get shopping
Who doesn’t fancy some new gear this season. One little look can’t hurt….
8. Book your ski lessons
If you’ve got your holiday booked and are looking for lessons or adventures for anyone in your group get in touch as soon as possible, to guarantee availability. Some weeks are filling up very fast!
