Alpine skiing is a demanding sport, and athletes will benefit by being in good physical condition to compete successfully and safely. Alpine skiing requires, in addition to a basic combination of endurance and strength, a high capacity of quickness, and action/reaction endurance. Through proper training, athletes improve their physical, psychological, and mental efficiency.
