Track Your Activities
Tracking Device. The Garmin Forerunner 645 can record all the details of your skiing based on movement and will automatically pause when you’re on a chairlift or take a break. This watch is an easy way to keep track of time on the mountain, distance traveled, maximum speed, average speed, and total vertical descent including a visual record in the form of a map of your day. This watch also tracks spring/summer activities including runs, hikes, outdoor bike rides, swimming and more.
Take Care of your Feet
CEP Compression Socks. Spring and summer adventures can involve long hours on your feet and a good pair of compression socks can be the perfect antidote. CEP's socks come in different lengths, but all of them improve blood circulation and are designed to prevent injury and speed recovery.
On Cloud X Shoes. We live in these shoes! They are great for running, cross-training, chasing children and will handily become your go-to sneaker. We love changing into them after a day on the slopes. On Cloud X's are ultra light and come in a variety of fun, spring colors. It really feels like you are walking on clouds.
OOFOS Recovery Sandals. Most ski moms will say their feet have been cramped in boots all winter. With the warmer weather, let your feet breath and recover by wearing comfortable, supportive sandals as much as possible. These are especially enjoyable after a long day on the trails. These sandals are designed with OOfoam technology that OOFOS says absorbs 37% more impact that traditional footwear.
