With autumn upon us, winter skiing is just around the corner. Now is the time to prepare your body and get into good shape before you hit the ski slopes. With a bit a preparation, you will not run into any problems whether skiing at Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows!

To start focus on some exercises such as jogging, running and lunges to improve general leg muscles as well as the lower body. In addition to movements to strengthen legs, be sure to practice some cardio movements to be sure your whole body is strong enough to keep going all day long on the slopes. You want to enjoy this winter sport, plus after you purchase a lift ticket, you must get your money’s worth.

As winter nears, you want to visit a ski resort with lots of terrains and trails such as California’ stunning Squaw Valley. Bring your family or friends (and non-skiers) to enjoy its many cafes and shopping. Unlike previous years, the majority of lifts are new with adequate room, plus waiting lines are shorter. The individual possible for these improvements to this ski resort is the CEO of Squaw Valley (and Alpine Meadows in the Olympic Valley) is Andy Wirth. In 2010 he took on this position to enable him to make very big changes to the famous ski slope and tourist area. Mr. Wirth used funds along with careful planning and constructing improvements that would improve the general skiing experience that one had here. The training of employees, snow guns, grooming fleet and facilities that create snow all received needed upgrades.

Another California ski resort, the famous Alpine Meadows located in Olympic Valley, also received a face lift. Since Mr. Wirth is also its CEO, he made sure that it also improved its services to skiers. While not as large as Squaw Valley, those who frequent here love it as it is great for beginners and it is simple to find a place on the mountains where one is alone skiing. With more than 25 years in the hotel and mountain resort business, Wirth knew what changes were needed to improve the experience for the skier. When not focusing on his CEO duties, Wirth concentrates on his philanthropic efforts in areas of Lake Tahoe. He recently co-founded Wounded Warrior Support which benefits members of the Navy SEALS and their families upon their return home.
