TIME TO SLIDE

Winter Sports Conditioning for Injury Prevention Winter is coming! As your excitement builds for being able to engage in your favorite cold-weather sport it is critical to prepare your body for an entirely new set of demands that come courtesy of lower temperatures. Think about it, the biggest difference between summer and winter sports is that in the winter we are sliding across the surface on which we are playing. We lose traction with the ground and therefore must control the slide in order to prevent an injury. Controlling the slide requires joint stability and proprioception, which is the ability to sense the body’s position in space and is critical for motor control. The inability to control our sliding motions can result in injury and sideline a winter full of adrenaline-packed activities. Whether you enjoy downhill skiing, cross country skiing or snowboarding, here are some tips from physical therapist and expert skier, Glenn Maclean-Talbot, PT, DPT, OCS.

Gear Up.

Warm-up.

Strengthen.

1. Overhead reach and crouch - Stand tall and with both arms reach up tall, stretching your core. Come down into a crouched position. Repeat 20 times.

1. Stand with your weight shifted to the left side.

2. Leg swings - Swing each leg side to side and front to back. Repeat 10 to 20 times for each leg.

The equipment you use can make a significant difference in your sports performance. Make sure your gear is up to date and fits appropriately. Wear a helmet and goggles and make sure your goggles fit your helmet without any gaps between the two. Your bindings should be set to the correct position and your skis or snowboard should be tuned and waxed. All of your gear should work properly before you use it.

Get your body in shape for your favorite winter activities. To help control the slide, sliding exercises are excellent choices. Try a skater lunge.

2. Jump laterally to the right. As the foot lands, the left foot should land behind and to the outside of the body. Knees should lower almost to the floor in a single leg squat. Your arms should oppose what your back leg is doing. When the right leg is back, the right arm should be up. Repeat on the left side. Do 3 sets of 20 to get the full benefits of this dynamic exercise.

Warming up your joints, muscles, and ligaments before any activity is essential for injury prevention. During the winter months, it is even necessary because your muscles are cold and tend to be stiffer. Plus, you’ve probably been sitting in the car on the way up to the mountain and need to loosen up before you do your first run of the day. Get out of the car and take a few minutes to get your body ready for the activity to come.

Winter sports require the strengthening and conditioning of the entire body. Cross-training is an excellent way to ensure the whole body is strong and prepared for the winter activities to come. Start preparing now so you are ready for your first day on the mountain and don’t have to sit out on day number two due to soreness or injury.

in our recipe for Pumpkin Pecan Pie for the best of both worlds. We have a winner!

PECAN + The name pecan is derived from the French word pacane, which is taken from the Algonquian word

VS.

for “nut.” + Pecan trees are native to North America and over 80 percent of the world’s pecan crop comes from the United States. The pecan capital of the world is Albany, Georgia, which boasts more than 600,000 pecan trees. + The earliest printed pecan recipes began popping up in Texas cookbooks in the 1870s and 1880s. + Pecan pie surged in popularity during the mid-1920s when the manufacturer of Karo syrup began printing a recipe for pecan pie on cans of the product, as James McWilliams noted in The Pecan: A History of America’s Native Nut (which explains the use of Karo syrup in traditional recipes). By the slice: 502 calories* Total fat, 27 grams* Protein, 4.3 grams* Sugar, 32 grams*

PUMPKIN + Pumpkin pie was not served at the first Thanksgiving because early settlers had no ovens for baking. + The first “modern” pumpkin pie recipe was published in 1796 by Amelia Simmons in American Cookery, the first known cookbook of the Americas. + According to the Illinois Department of Agriculture, 95 percent  of the U.S.  crop intended for processing is grown in Illinois. + In 1929, Libby’s canned pumpkin was introduced to the United States. Libby’s is not technically pumpkin, but is a Dickinson squash that also has orange flesh.

MORNING GLORY FROM SLEEPING TO THE SLOPES: CHOOSE YOUR STYLE TO ACCESS THE MOUNTAIN FOR FIRST TURNS

ARTICLE GREGG MORRIS

22

Bend Lifestyle | November 2019


WE ALL KNOW THE FEELING. It’s a crisp morning after a snow storm. The alarm goes off and we enter into our morning routine. As the sleep gets wiped from our eyes, an immediate thought crosses our minds, “What’s it like up there?” While non-skiers or snowboarders may appreciate the beauty that comes with a clear day after a storm, those who like to glide on snow chase the powder with a snow leopard’s ferocity. Bend residents driving across the parkway look west to see snowy peaks on our Cascade Mountains, and some, intent on taking advantage of winter’s gift, plan their attack on the mountains. The first thought hovers around traffic and how quickly they can drive up the Cascade Lakes Highway and into the Mt. Bachelor parking area. The second thought centers around who will be lucky enough to get first chair. What if you didn’t have to deal with the 45-minute drive to the mountain? What if getting dressed meant simply pulling on your snow pants and boots, thus eliminating the need for driving clothes? What if you were king or queen of first chair? Obviously, eliminating the morning drive means staying near Mt. Bachelor. But with the National Forest Service not allowing the ski area to build chalets, those interested in a good night’s rest in the mountains are left with two options: Recreational vehicle (RV) or snow camping. BACK TO NATURE “There’s no greater feeling than the slap of cold air on your face after a night in a sleeping bag,” says Redmond resident Simon Camp. “But, seeing fresh snow and my skis leaning against a tree makes it all the better,” he says. Staying true to his name, Camp estimates he spends more than 50 nights in his tent each year, including “good weather” weekends near Mt. Bachelor. And while first chair is always in reach, he is more interested in just communing with nature and rounding out his skiing experience. Because Mt. Bachelor doesn’t allow tent or snow cave camping in or around their parking area due to the dangers from snow removal machines, campers head across the street to the areas surrounding Dutchman Flat Sno-Park. With rolling hills surrounding a snow-covered meadow, it’s no wonder the Deschutes County Search and Rescue Team uses the area for winA bluebird day for early risers at Mt. Bachelor.

“THERE’S NO GREATER FEELING THAN THE SLAP OF COLD AIR ON YOUR FACE AFTER A NIGHT IN A SLEEPING BAG.” —SIMON CAMP TENT VS. SNOW CAVE Those seeking to “rough it” must decide whether they want to crawl into a tent or a snow cave. While a tent’s thin nylon barrier may not provide much in terms of extra warmth, it can be appropriate if the temperature warms a little and turns the snow to rain. But, on a clear night, either shelter will work for your winter camping adventure. After setting up the tent or digging out the cave, don’t forget to dig a fire pit. With little chance of setting the forest ablaze, a warm fire keeps the chills away while watching the lights of the groomers crisscross the mountain. Plus, sharing stories and meals with friends around a campfire makes you forget the warm bed you left at home. THE CONVENIENCE OF AN RV For those in search of the morning alpenglow, but not a cold night’s sleep, Mt. Bachelor offers RV parking in their RV lot at the West Village Parking Area. Overnight RV parking spots cost $20 per night, or $169 for the winter season. RVs can stay for up to seven consecutive nights. Pay showers are available at West Village’s Todd Lake Building. The RV parking area can fill up and turn into a party. Locals and visitors talk of the mountain’s conditions while grilling hamburgers and hot dogs next to their RVs. Part college tailgater with a snowy twist, the RV experience means getting in runs on the mountain while also hanging out with friends, new and old. So if you’re looking to get out of traffic and into nature, consider driving up to Mt. Bachelor the night before your planned ski day. You’ll get to sleep a little longer and still contend for first chair. CONTINUED >

Regardless of your sleeping style, whether you prefer a tent, snow cave or RV, spending the night at the mountain gives you the best access to the first chairs, and first turns, on your favorite runs.

GET BACK YOUR LIFE!

PRO TIP: Skip the lift lines at Mt. Bachelor and earn your turns on Tumalo Mountain. HOW TO DIG A SNOW CAVE + Find a suitable location - Be weary of

avalanches

and

snowmobile

routes. You’re also going to want snow that is a little wet to work with. + Dig an entrance - Four feet wide is large enough to crawl in, but small enough to block the wind. + Dig a tunnel - Eight feet will allow for some space for you and your gear. + Shape the inside - Cold air sinks so make sure to have a raised bed. Walls should be at least a foot thick so the snow cave is insulated well and the roof doesn’t collapse.

+ Don’t forget - Poke some ventilation holes. Keep your shovel inside in case you get snowed in. Mark your location so you—and others—know

RENOVATE & REFINE

COZY up your HOME TAKE A CUE FROM THE SCANDINAVIAN CONCEPT OF HYGGE AND WELCOME THE TRANSITION OF SUMMER TO AUTUMN WITH A RELAXING REFRESH

Bend Lifestyle | November 2019


PUMPKIN SPICE, APPLE CINNAMON AND A HOT CUP OF COCOA. Fall is all about getting warm and comfy as a chill hits the air—preparing yourself for winter, and cherishing those final moments of summer. As the nights grow longer, we’re embracing the Scandinavian secret of hygge by creating a space that emphasizes simple pleasures and finding joy in everyday moments—even when the weather is dreary. A burnt orange adirondack rug and woodland pillow set a ‘cozy cabin’ mood. Wicker baskets filled with apples and gourds are a reminder of the importance of the harvest, and a fun way to help teach young kids about the changing of the seasons. During this transitional time, light wood, fluffy blankets and scented candles beckon crisp autumn evenings, while a vase of fresh flowers—particularly mums—are an ode to the bright, sunny days we’re not quite ready to give up yet.

and

warm cinnamon are scents that bring the autumn air indoors. Adding these scents to your home will create a comforting and inviting atmosphere for your family and fall guests.

MAD FOR PLAID Plaid patterns are a staple for fall. Find unique ways to pull the pattern into your decor in the form of blankets, pillows and even rugs if you’re feeling adventurous!

and

long-lasting blooms are almost as much a marker of autumn as football, shorter days and cooler weather. Incorporate some warmer-color blooms into your decor for a fresh addition that’s reminiscent of changing leaves.

AU NATURALE Wicker and natural materials like wood and jute are great ways to bring the outdoors in. Create a woodsy feel with dried flowers, natural wood accents and lots of baskets—great for storing your knit blankets! 30

LOCAL’S CHOICE

contributor

gratitude FROM MEMBERS OF THE BEND LIFESTYLE TEAM: WAYS WE ARE GRATEFUL HEADING INTO THE HOLIDAYS NAME: Cheryl Parton, editor GRATEFUL FOR:

“I am so thankful for my loving family and friends. Having lived in Bend for 20 years, I’m grateful for the way we all connect to each other and make our community better via shared experiences—whether through our kids, work, volunteerism or play. Every day is a gift.”

NAME: Gregg Morris, writer GRATEFUL FOR:

“Each Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for the little things; the promise of snow on the trails, the post-dinner nap on the couch, and the expectation of leftovers in the refrigerator. A day of football, food, and family— given and chosen—could lay claim as the best day of the year.”

NAME: Julie E. Furnas, writer GRATEFUL FOR:

“Gratitude is something I try to practice every day. In the morning, I start my routine by writing down three things I am grateful for and try to think about those things for the rest of my day. Going into the holidays, I feel a higher sense of gratitude for everything I have and try to extend that by doing as much as I can for others.”

NAME: Donna Burklo, writer SHE HAS, “A GRATITUDE MANTRA FOR THE FALL SEASON OF LIFE:”

“Fall is my favorite season. I’m in the Fall season of life as well – admittedly my best so far. Therefore, today I am grateful for wrinkled, crepey skin. I savor my scars with first pumpkin-spice latte fervor. I appreciate my capable fall-season body and will treat it with kindness.”
