Skier's hangover.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I skied for the first time yesterday at tremblant (I can't count that day on 50 feet at my local resort), and now I'm feelin'it. I skied from 9-3:30 with a 1/2hour break. I woke up this morning felt like I hadn't slept in a week. My arse and back are killing me. But I'll still be back for more as soon as my local resort opens up week day access.

Try drinking the drink described in an old Warren Miller Film.

Tequila chased with a Gatorade - The Rehydrator, official drink of skiing!

MattW -

Take two ibuprofen before going to bed and two when you wake up & a couple at lunch......crap, live on the stuff until your conditioning catches up with your enthusiasm.

Sounds like a diet issue. I don't get the idea that you are a couch potato, so you must have something else causing all the aching besides just early season pains.
Hope you get to feeling better!!! [img]smile.gif[/img]

try stretching.
really stretching like holding it where it hurts for 20-30 sec.

Drink lots of water before skiing, while skiing and after skiing.

God please grant me a pelvis to do things with ...and some 20 yr old legs to mount the target.

I was skiing in Tremblant on the 18th and 19th. I drove to Tremblant through the night on the 18th and drove back to Toronto on the 19th. Skiing on the 19th was a little better than the 18th, as they got a little snow. Last night I arrived in Toronto quite dead, but very happy.

Don't you love it how they talk about 12 open runs, when in fact there were only 3-4 actual runs. Too bad the racers took over the good stuff. But I digress, because skiing on 3-4 icy runs is considerably better than sitting in an office in Toronto wondering where the !@#$% is the snow. :

Tom, there are 12 runs open(two of them being blocked by racers or rich spoiled brits). It just so happens that 6 ofthe twelve runs traverse runs (20 foot paths that go between two runs).

I really can't complain too much about the racers and the brits. I used to be a racer. I got to see my old team mates and wish that I was still in it. If it's any conselation the brits were paying through the nose for that hill space.

Sure was nice when it opened up though. I was there as soon as it opened, got in front of the croud and was able to make a few sweet highspeed GS turns on some sweet hardpack.

It's too bad I didn't know you were going to be there. I've always wanted to put some faces to the names on this BB.
