According to Chemmy Alcott, there are many reasons why women don’t return to their passions of skiing and snowboarding after having children.
But the BBC Ski Sunday presenter insists that a lack of confidence should never be a reason not to ski…and the Ski Mojo can help with that.
Women less likely to ski as they age
Research by the National Ski Areas Association in the USA has shown that women make up a declining percentage of skiers as the population ages.
At age 40, women make up around half of skiers and snowboarders, but by age 47 that has fallen to 40%, and by 67, only 30% of skiers and snowboarders are women.
Some older women have injuries that prevent them from skiing, while others lack confidence to return to the slopes.
Quickly back on the slopes
Alcott was skiing again shortly after giving birth to her two children:
“I was really lucky to return to skiing two weeks after giving birth to my two boys, but I had incredible support from my family and my Ski Mojo.”
“The Ski Mojo gives you support and makes you feel safe.”
The Ski Mojo can help performance
Not only does it give you more confidence, but according to Alcott, it can help performance:
“By pushing your hip up into the turn, you don’t even have to rely on that strength that you might have lost when you became a mum.”
Extend your skiing life
The Ski Mojo has helped many women get back on to the snow and extend their skiing lives, even after hip and shoulder replacements, scoliosis, meniscus injuries, knee reconstruction, MCL injuries and arthritis.
