With the season rapidly approaching (although it doesn't feel that way), what is everyone's favorite late summer/fall activities to get ready for the pow? For example, i find a good mix of rock climbing (mental), trail running (cardio), and yoga (flexibility) really gets me ready for getting after it in the winter. Anyone else have things they like to do?

Racing bikes, definitely gets the fine motor skills tuned, as well as endurance and aerobic capacity.

Utah has a high-school level league that has some pretty rad racing.

I have also been hiking to snowline just about every night to see what's going on (is that healthy?)



Wish I was out climbing more but... my normal climbing partner has shingles... :? :thumbsdown:

Buying gear (with my money made from work)

Making time to ride (by getting laid off of work)

The mountain bike is broken :cry: So I've been paddling on the Lake a bit, gotten back into yoga, making use of the bowflex, lots of pushups, hiked a few mountains, and chopping and stacking wood. And running. I fucking hate running. :nononno:
Yeah, I'm pretty much ready for stoke season :headbang:

I try to do a quick leg circuit in the gym ( 3-4 exercises max, no rest) a couple of times a week. Also need to start running again (3-4 times / week) and plan to ride the MTB a bit more.

Honestly, I don't think that this is enough / optimal but it's better than nothing...

This bar seems awfully high, is this on purpose (for comfort)?

Lernr, I never noticed, but you're right. It looks awfully akward. She's been riding that set up a few years. I doubt she'd let me change it now- maybe if I told her she'd be a little more comfortable on the roll-downs 'round here.

-Get some runs in at A-basin.
-Keep on CrossFitting it.
-Organize my backcountry gear.
-Monitor the snow conditions (starting by listening to those here on the forum and waiting for CAIC to start up their reports).
-Watching hockey is fun also.
