Have you ever felt that thirst while high up in the mountains?
Dehydration is a common issue during winter outdoor activities, and it can be particularly easy to become dehydrated while skiing or snowboarding. The cold and dry air, coupled with the physical exertion required for these sports, can contribute to dehydration.
It's crucial to stay hydrated for optimal body function. Here are some tips to help you stay hydrated on the slopes:
- It's easy to forget to drink water while having fun on the slopes, and carrying a water bottle in sub-zero temperatures can be challenging. Our advice is to bring a thermos of tea and stop regularly to hydrate.
- You can also consume 1 tablet of HANG-OVER, which contains electrolytes, in the morning before heading out, dissolved in 50cl of water. They can replace the electrolytes lost through sweating and help you stay hydrated more effectively.
- In addition to drinking fluids, you can prevent dehydration by dressing appropriately. Wear multiple layers of clothing to regulate your body temperature and avoid sweating. Make sure to cover your skin to protect it from the cold, dry air. A face mask or neck gaiter can help keep your skin moist and prevent it from drying out.
- Pay attention to your body's signals of thirst. If you feel thirsty, it's probably already too late—your body is already starting to dehydrate.
