Simple Sequence for Snowboarders and Skiers

Don’t forget to pack your yoga mat on your way to the mountains this winter. Stretching before and after you ski or snowboard can prepare your body and mind for the slopes this season and protect you from injury. Even if you’re just heading to the quaint ski towns to hangout with friends and drink Hot Toddy’s, doing some stretches before or after your long haul across I-70 will keep you limber for the party.
