Good Balance for Good Skiing

As thoughts turn to winter holidays it’s time to think about getting fit for skiing again.

TDC coach Phil Harrison guides you through a series of simple home-based exercises that will develop your balance and leg strength.

We are going to run through simple home based exercises that are targeted at Balance, Core Strength, Leg Strength and Cardiovascular fitness.

Give it a go!!!


We Start with Balance Exercises

Good skiing starts with being able to balance your weight on one leg. So the first exercise is simply doing just that. Balance on one leg, flexing your knee slightly forwards. Start with balancing for 30 seconds and build up to a couple of minutes at a time.

Top tip - ensure that your kneecap sits over your second toe, this will train your body to be in good alignment.

If you want to make it more challenging, try closing your eyes (yes I do have my eyes closed behind the sunnies!) and lifting one leg so your foot rests on the inside of your other knee.

All the TDC Coaching Clinics are designed to give the participants the best opportunity to improve their performance and enjoyment of skiing. The ski clinics will have technical, tactical and psychological focuses according to the needs and goals of the individuals in the group, whilst ensuring that the most important outcome is enjoyment. The choice of terrain will take advantage of the best conditions available on the mountain at the time.

Too often in our experience have we heard "I would love to get better and I know there are things for me to learn but ski school is not for me!"

  • Best money I've ever spent

    I was encouraged to have three mornings with TDC as a complete beginner. It was the best decision I made! I started with Steve for three hours and his teaching technique and tone was perfection."

  • Best ski afternoon for a few years

    I enjoyed an excellent and memorable afternoon with TDC coach Rich in March. I only needed a few key tips and my (basic) off-piste skiing became stronger and felt better."
