Fitness for Ski Instructor Training: The final touches 4

This is it the end, the final session we are writing to be used for the next 3 Fridays. Then that is it. The time has come to finish preparing off snow and start skiing. Our fitness for ski instructor training programmes will continue on a weekly basis but we will be focussing on staying injury-free and managing recovery rather than getting fit. Have an awesome season.
