Bonjour from the wonderful Chamonix valley. We’ll be developing posture, balance and movement patterns for the kick and the glide of classic cross country skiing. Think about core stability and strength, take it gently, don’t force anything – a short 5 min session regularly is better than a long work out – little and often!
Working on our core today, as well as ski fitness and balance. Take less than 10 minutes to work on our core stability regularly. Getting ready for Nordic Heaven! Again we start with our warm up. No injuries people!
To get the most of our skiing holiday we can prepare our body with some gentle exercises, building up slowly to increase strength and balance. Take it easy, we don’t want to injure ourselves.
You don’t have to be wonder woman to fly through the air! Calm those nerves, and you’ll be stepping, balancing, and even leaping out from the top of the highest activity tower in the UK, whilst enjoying fine views of the lakes and mountains around Llanberis, courtesy of Ropeworks Active

Following the water’s edge, climb from bay to bay, starting with short swims and low level cliff traverses to bigger jumps and swims across coves to small rocky islands.

With slides, scrambles and plunge pools, we are too absorbed to notice any exposure. We do wear harnesses, helmets, wetsuits and buoyancy aids, to take full advantage of any challenges we mayContinue reading “Gorge Scrambling in the Mountains”
In the tranquil setting of a mountain lake, enjoy the sheer physical pleasure of the paddle. The buoyancy aids and the remarkable stability of the canoes makes this a fun activity, even for non swimmers.
Learn the ropes, then tackle Snowdonia’s finest rock: Seaside cliffs, mountain crags, gorges, whatever the weather, there’s always somewhere in North Wales to climb.
If you’ve thought about taking the plunge but don’t know where to start why not try a guided adventure break? A weekend itinerary might look like this:
