Skiing is a workout, no question about it. It's strenuous on the feet, ankles, calfs, knees, thighs, core, arms - the whole body really. It requires focus, it requires stamina and it ensures you'll be spending time outdoors breathing deeply in the cold air. It's quality cross-training and it's keeping me fit while I take a short break from paddling.
Sugarloaf is where I now spend my weekends. If you're counting acreage, it's the biggest ski resort in the East. Their 20-year average snowfall is 197 inches. This season they've already seen more than 60 inches of snow and are off to one of their best starts ever in their 63 year history. Loaded with locals & ruled by regulars, they are backed-up by a challenging selection of terrain including tight trees & fast groomers.
