While skiing may be fun and refreshing, it can also be quite the workout, especially when done at a high altitude. After spending some time shredding at the top of the mountain, you will return to earth with a total body workout—and a tan—not necessarily in that order!

Since the winter season is now over in most areas, it’s time to take a break from the slopes. However, that doesn’t mean your ski workout is over just yet. There are still ways to get an intense workout in during the offseason, which is why most ski resorts around the world maintain their ski runs all year long, even after the snow melts. The following will discuss some of the more unique and effective ways to work out while on vacation, in a place that you may not have previously considered a workout destination.

Skiing In The Summer

Although the chances of you actually enjoying yourself while skiing in the summer are minimal, it’s always nice to have the option. The problem is that most resorts are closed during the summer, which means that you either have to stay in the city or go to a different one. Thankfully, that’s not always the case. There are still some resorts around the world that operate during the summer, which means you have choice in the matter.

For those of you who are really hoping to get in some quality time on the mountain this year, the chances of you finding any kind of ski run are pretty low. The good news is that during the offseason, many resorts are offering some amazing uphill and downhill courses that you can utilize for your summer workout. As long as you are careful and know how to prepare for the hot temperatures and sunshine, you can still enjoy the experience and get in some exercise.

Skiing In The Rain

If you’ve ever watched the movie Rainman, you know what kind of scene we’re talking about here. While it’s not entirely possible for everyone to pack up and move to the mountains just for the summer, it’s always nice to have the option. What if there was a way for you to enjoy a little bit of everything that the mountains had to offer, including the beautiful views, the fresh air, and the intense workout? Imagine, if you will, taking a walk along a mountain side when it starts to rain heavily, just as you’re about to take a break from your workout. At this point, you could either follow the trail along the roadside or take the short cut through the forest, getting wet and cool as you go. What then, would your regular workout look like?

There is a way, you know. Resorts and the like usually don’t allow for any kind of vehicular traffic on their grounds, especially during the summer, so if you’ve ever seen the Movie Road Trip, you know what kind of scenario we’re talking about here. However, during the offseason, things are different. Most resorts will be open and allow for some leisure driving. Plus, there will probably be a lot less people around, which will give you the opportunity to pull some crazy tricks like jumping over gates or turning circles in the road. In short, you will have the feeling of being a teenage road rebel again, but this time, you’ll be working out while doing it. It will be the best of both worlds.

The Ski-in/ski-out

Did you know that some resorts don’t require you to check in at all? This is probably one of the greatest perks of being a Goldpass holder, or even a member of the Frequent Flyers loyalty program. At the end of the day, you just show up and ski out. It’s that simple. You may even find that the lift ticket prices are somewhat reasonable, especially if you’re bringing your own skis. It’s also important to note here that some resorts may still require you to wear ski gear or rent ski equipment for the duration of your visit. Check the details before going there, especially if you’re traveling during the off-season.

As wonderful as it would be to just show up and ski out anytime you want, it’s also important to remember that other people might not feel the same way. After all, a lot of work goes into making sure that the mountain is groomed and ready for the upcoming winter season. Therefore, it would not be fair to just show up and take over the mountain without contributing something back. For those of you who want to do some good while enjoying themselves, the option of a ski-in/ski-out is definitely there. Just make sure that you’re aware of the restrictions before doing so.

Skiing In/Skiing Out Across The Country

Did you know that many resorts don’t have the same attitude when it comes to allowing visitors? Some of them will even let you set up camp for the night and ski out the next day. It’s not that they don’t want to keep the great mountain experience to themselves, it’s just that they want to make sure that everyone gets a fair chance at it. The same goes for some bus tours that visit famous ski resorts, such as Colorado or California. If you’re looking to get some quality mountain time without having to deal with large groups, this could be a way to go. Just make sure that you’re aware of the travel constraints and time restrictions before doing so.

Indulge In A Little Black Book Of Tricks

Did you know that some resorts don’t even have signs pointing towards the slopes? This is a great way to get around and not have someone come up and ask you what you’re doing or why you’re there. While it may be tempting to just whip out your mobile phone and show people the tricks you learned in one of the many hiking apps, there is still that certain charm to finding a little black book of tricks and using them. Remember: this is your vacation, you may as well have fun!

Skiing In Small Town America

For those of you who are really hoping to get in some quality time on the mountain this year, the chances of you finding any kind of ski run are pretty low. The good news is that during the offseason, many resorts are offering some amazing uphill and downhill courses that you can utilize for your summer workout. As long as you are careful and know how to prepare for the hot temperatures and sunshine, you can still enjoy the experience and get in some exercise.

Hopefully, these ideas will give you some more ideas for ways to work out during the offseason. It’s never easy deciding what to do when you’ve reached the end of your vacation, but you can be certain that there will always be another mountain waiting to be explored.
