Balance, strength and coordination are key ingredients for developing proficiency in a variety of snow sports. This session will demonstrate simple but effective maneuvers that build the skills needed for alpine skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing. Using inexpensive and available tools, these "dry land" exercises can be taught right in the gym and offer P.E. teachers an option for teaching winter outdoor activity. The session will also cover dressing properly for outdoor winter activity.
