Here's another flawed poll for our summertime amusement. Which of the following sports activities do you do in the summer to stay fit for the ski season (or just for fun if fitness isn't your thing)?

Flawed poll. You left out skiing (there are a couple of indoor slopes near me that I visit once a month).

You also left out "none of the above".  Or..."nothing".

That's just Nolo blatantly discriminating against couch potatoes.

Live like there is no off season!

 

 

I MTB, every day I'm home, year round.  I'm also swimming everyday and waterskiing 2-3 time a week, April-Oct.

In April, after I finished my first barefoot run of the season.  The guy in the other boat said, "Dude, what'd you due in the off season?"

 

My response was, "This is the off season!"

Exclusively rodeo.

Summer isn't my "off season". Winter is.

 

So, I do a bunch of stuff (biking, kayaking, badminton) because I like them. Not for staying in shape "for skiing" per se.

 

I ski in the cycling "off season" so I don't get burned out on one single activity.

It was a choice between Badminton or Nothing. biggrin.gif
