Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@DB, I would think the ideal leg recovery aid would be a pair of techno trousers as per Wallace and Gromit. Madeye-Smiley

2 seasons ago we were on holiday in Morzine as a group of late 20's early 30's plus a few older couples/parents, and my friend who organised it arranged for a friend of hers to come to the chalet and do a beginners yoga session for us all. The next day was the best my legs felt all week, except day 1 when they had no skiing in them.

As usual the preventative option is usually best. Go in with good fitness and lower limb strength and you probably won't feel sore the next day. If a non-active person said they were going to go and play a sport for multiple hours a day for an entire week we would say it's stupid you will be sore/injured, yet for many choosing to ski its considered normal!

There's been lots of research on the subject, unfortunately findings can be quite contradictory. Massage, foam roller, ice baths may all help.
