Essential Three-Minute Soother
These stretches de-stress the muscles most frequently fried on the slopes -- those in the back, hips, thighs, and calves -- so they can mellow out, not freeze up.
Stretches back and hips
- Lie faceup on floor with legs extended. Pull left knee into chest with right hand, then cross knee over to right side.
- Extend left arm out to side; hold for 15 to 20 seconds. Switch sides and repeat.
