WE MAY not have seen too much of it in the UK in the past few years, but the presence of snow in other European countries and around the world has facilitated what seems to be the almost unstoppable growth of winter sports. An estimated 1.2 million holidaymakers now indulge in snow sports abroad annually, according to the Ski Club of Great Britain, which is celebrating its centenary this year.

However, despite the rapidly rising popularity of winter sports breaks, the majority embarking on them at about this time of year still fail to prepare themselves physically. The result, according to Jenny Joliffe, a keen snow sportswoman and group fitness manager for Cannons who is presenting an off-piste workout at the FitPro convention in April, is extremely sore legs and general fatigue. “Many of those trying such holidays for the first time will find they hurt too much or are too tired to enjoy themselves or learn the sport properly,” she said.

Times online has produced a series of exercises designed to get you fit enough to enjoy your holiday.
