Ski Sickness? You Bet!

Ski Sickness? You Bet!

Did you know that some downhill skiers report experiencing motion sickness?

Yup. It’s called, appropriately, ski sickness.

It seems to be more common on days when visibility is limited, such as in foggy or near whiteout conditions.

Wearing ski boots and skis changes the way our bodies relate to or feel the ground, which also contributes to the problem.

A lot of little things need to come together to create ski sickness – it’s not a common event.

Chances are you won’t be afflicted with this type of motion sickness, but perhaps it’s best to take your ReliefBand with you to the mountains, just in case.
