Ski Exercises at Home

If you’re a beginner skier, then getting a feel for the slopes can take a little bit of time. It’s not just the technique that you have to be comfortable with; it’s also the strain on your muscles.

To help improve your overall fitness for skiing, Chill Factore has put together some useful ski exercises that should help you along your way.


Ski fitness is very much centred on your legs, and squats help to work a variety of muscle groups in a single exercise. Incorporate squats into your exercise plan to get your muscles ready for the types of motions that you will go through during a given ski session.


Similar to squats, lunges help to work a number of core muscles at once. Consider doing side-lunges to help strengthen your lower-body in preparation for skiing.

Ankle Pumps

Skiing can be a great strain on your ankles, and a great way to build up your ankles and calves at home is through ankle pumps. Work through simple rotations of your feet in both directions, and then move on to an ankle pump on each of your feet.
