Why go Skiing

These are some of the top reasons why you should give a skiing holiday a whirl:

  • Health Benefits : Clearly there are healthy benefits with any sports holiday. Spending time in the fresh air and doing exercise are always good. The mountain air, which tends to be cleaner, can help people with some types of repository problems. One other great things about skiing, is that it allows you to exercise as hard or as easy as you like. You don’t need to be able to run mile in under 5 minutes or be able to be super fit. With skiing you let gravity do the hard work.
  • A nice break after Christmas : So you’ve done your beach holiday, but that was 7 months ago. Now it is time for a break again, then skiing can be a great way to get away from work. Skiing offers an alternative to sitting on a beach in the sunshine. If you are into spending time outdoors, then skiing is for you. Because of the lack of snow in Ireland, it also means that you will be travelling abroad to experience snow. This gives you the opportunity to see a new country and experience foreign cultures.
  • Night Life : One of the great parts of the skiing lifestyle is the aprés ski. Once you have done the healthy aspect of your holiday, you are free to party for a few hours and enjoy the night life. Most resorts offer music and discos. These kick off early in the late afternoon and they run late into the night. Also this is a great way to meet other skiers from all around the world.
  • Learn a new skill : Learning to ski is like learning to ride a bike, sure you are going to fall on your ass ever now and again, but once you get the hang of it it is great fun. Skiing is about being coordinated, and it just takes a few practise lessons before you will be zooming down the slopes and enjoying the great out doors. When learning skiing or snowboarding you can be going down those green slopes with a couple of hours of lessons, and doing turns properly.

  1. hi seán, you don’t need to be very fit. But I guess you should be capable of running a short distance. If you can do that then you should be okay. Remember “Gravity” is working with you !

  2. I used to always ski, but then the queues and the prices to get onto the slopes got ridiculous. Can anyone recommend somewhere cheap and not a honeypot?

  3. Hi Lindey, I think Bulgaria would be the right direction to go then. It’s not as commercial and not as expensive.

  4. I would like to go skiing at christmas dec 20 08, with my adult kids 21, 24. We are beginners. Any recommendations
