Here in New York, we are grateful for winter because it allows us the opportunity to go skiing! Whether coming down the slopes at Whiteface or Telluride, or making your way over cross-country paths in the Adirondacks, any type of skiing demands balance, coordination, and strength. In addition, the knees of skiers are at particular risk, and any knee pain or discomfort should be carefully monitored. And as any novice will quickly point out, the general aches and pains you feel following day can be brutal! At IthacaSports, we appreciate just how strenuous skiing can be, and we stock lots of sports-medicine supplies and gear intended to help you perform well, and to recover more quickly afterward. We have excellent compression gear to help keep muscles limber, braces to support knees and elbow, and even blister-care products that may ease the pain caused by too-tight boots and bindings. From the lift to the lodge, let us know how we can assist you!
