Having a good range of movement in your joints will help your body adjust to sudden changes in direction, and can also help prevent injury when you fall. Concentrate on hip flexibility, loosening your hamstrings, and increasing the range of motion in your upper body. Traditional stretching will help, but you may find that you get more benefits from a discipline such as yoga or Pilates that also addresses body alignment, balance, and strength – other key components of a ski training regimen.
