Skiing looks effortless, but gliding down a mountain takes some serious legwork! Build strength in the quads, hammies, glutes, and calves with low-impact workouts like short runs, elliptical sessions, yoga, and pilates. Strong legs can keep you going all day and protect the joints (especially the knees) from potential injury on the hill.
