    • Skiing is a great workout - you can burn up to 500 calories an hour.
    • Your knees take on the weight of your body when you turn downhill, strengthening your bones and joints.
    • As you go down the slope, your body is in a squat position, which improves your balance and builds your stomach and leg muscles.

    Find your local centre in England, Wales or Scotland to get yourself on the slopes.
