This may be the altitude talk­ing, but who needs a well­ness re­treat? For­get early-morn­ing yoga – we pre­fer adrenalin Zen. Noth­ing will fo­cus your mind and put your of­fice anx­i­eties to rest faster than stand­ing on the precipice of a black run. But don’t wan­der aim­lessly into a ski-hire shop: al­low the MH Lab to equip you in­stead with the pro­grade kit that can keep pace with you on the piste and far off it, too.

This month, we en­trusted elite coach Jack Hall and the in­struc­tors of Altitude Ski and Snow­board School in Ver­bier, Switzer­land, to trial the best equip­ment of the sea­son and re­veal what best fits your style and abil­ity. With the Jour­nal of Sports Science and Medicine find­ing that you can el­e­vate metabolism, boost heart health and fly through a su­per­charged lower-body work­out by putting on some sa­lopettes and hurtling down­hill, hit­ting the slopes is more than just a cold legs day. It’ll off­set the fon­due, too. See you après ski.
