Luca Minigher getting ready for the winter


During this summer I focused on preparing myself for the upcoming season by doing a lot of athletics, running, stretching, trampolining and also some jibbing. Every day before starting work at 06:30 am,  I was running up and down the slopes of Sella Nevea (1850mt of drop) in Italy. Trail running is ideal to keep my knees fit, and ready for a long winter. Once at the top, I would add some arms and shoulders exercises to get a complete workout.

I made a big point this off season to get more flexible, in order to get more grabs in my tricks but also to reduce the risk of injury. I would typically do it just before going to bed outside my house in the Italian Alps. The view could be worse…11356658_1154024884614969_113014319_n(1)

Three times a week I would head out to go trampolining. I’m focusing on improving my dub’s and unnatural spins. I’ve improved massively over the summer with tons of new grabs and a few new tricks. I just can’t wait for winter to come so that I can try them all on snow!TrampFLATOn top of this summer routine, I went training with the North East Italian Freestyle Team. We would usually go trampolining, or water jumping and also do a bunch of physical training such as strength and conditioning but also a lot of proprioception. We also got the chance to visit a big gym with tons of trampolines with foam pits. It really was the ideal place to work on my new tricks.

We are at the end of September and I will be back on the skis on November for Modena Skipass, a contest held in Italy. After that I will get down to HIntertux to shred the glacier and shortly after I will be in Livignio for the season! Not long until the mountains become white and the resorts start opening!
