Last season’s tropical winter might have kept you from using your ski poles, but it couldn’t stop our ski poll. In pursuit of the best – and occasionally the worst – Washington has to offer, we conducted a survey that’s about as scientific as your horoscope. We circulated informal questionnaires to our readers and polled a couple dozen skiing and boarding experts from ski shops and the pro ranks around the state. Some responded with insightful answers, others with too much information (two Olympia readers say they like to ski naked) and some just asked us to leave them alone. Check and see how your favorites compare.

In addition to 20 to 60 minutes of varied cardiovascular activities at least three times a week, he suggests these exercises, demonstrated by himself and fellow trainer Lisa Masters. – Craig Hill, The News Tribune
