I try at smaller hills to really focus on form and to get a good carve in. Of course this is tough when the hill gets busy - don't want to run into anyone.

I also like to drop into the half pipe every so often, I'm not very good essentially can just go up do a 180 go back down. But it gets my heart beating and makes me focus on what my body is doing. Plus it freaks out the teenagers when they see a "mom" in the pipe!

I'm often skiing with my boys (who are not up to my level yet), and one thing I like to do is work on my form and keep my body moving on the easier runs. A ski instructor gave me some specific exercises to work on, which helps.

Three days of skiing and boy are my legs feeling it. I'm sure gaining twenty pounds in the last year isn't helping at all. I look forward to starting the next season in better shape and seeing if it goes better.

Yesterday, I counted turns as if they were reps to motivate myself down the slope. Got up to 30 at once in cut up powder :). Today, I focused on being able to do larger sections of the runs without stopping. That was mostly accomplished by taking fewer turns though.

Ski exercise goal for the month: be able to do one of the ungroomed blacks at my local resort without stopping for a breather.
