The weather has finally turned colder and the ski season is just around the corner. Whether you intend to ski locally up in the Jura, or further afield in the Alps, it helps if you are fit to enjoy the sport. Take a look at this article here written by Dr Michelle Wright of “Health First” on preparing yourself for the ski season. You might also want to refresh your first aid skills as well. Here is a list of first aid courses run by Dr Michelle and Dr Penny Fraser, two British trained doctors living in Switzerland.
