From ski gear to vacation rentals, plane tickets to lift tickets, we skiers pay a lot for our sport.
The most important ski investment we can make, however, is in our own health. Eating well, which means eating the right food at the right time, dramatically affects our energy levels and mental focus. We may own the best gear and hit the hottest slopes but, if we haven’t fueled up the right way before, during and after skiing, we won’t be able to ski to our full potential. After all we’ve invested just to get to the top of that first hill, failing to fuel ourselves for the best possible ski experience simply makes no sense.
