    There, you have it ! It was a constant issue I had as a beginner/intermediate skier, I was too flexed from the knees and waist, not properly balanced on the lower ski (probably both lengthwise and side-wise) so the muscle and knees were doing all the job resulting in constant pain ...

      skiing/skiboarding is different than biking, running or whatever sports you do. I am 38, I play football and tennis, and bike around town on an almost daily basis, but the first 3-4 times I go every season are super tiring for my legs. Then gradually I would get in shape and would not get that tired. I think this is the main issue...

        Itís plain and simple. The air is thinner where your skiing and your not getting enough blood flow to the muscles, some get altitude sickness. It will take a few days to get a little use to the thin air.

          My legs never really stop getting tired, and it's primarily quad burn (with some glute soreness from skating, and lower back muscle soreness from absorbing hits). It just takes 6 or 7 hours by this point of the season. Why stop if you're not completely spent? ; )

            I know what you mean but I think this is a different type of pain. It's about some muscles that are usually not much solicited during regular other sports, so at first they take a bit of a hit and then the muscles get used to it and it gets better on following days. I don't think this is what OP is experiencing. I was your age when I was learning to ski, like you I was playing hours of football, basketball and tennis every week, but when I was getting on skis it was pretty painful on every run of every day, it was a sort of "bad pain" that should not have been happening... Now, 15 years later, when I practice much less sports throughout the year and I don't have that fitness level, now I can go for hours in a row on skiboards without needing any break whatsoever and without that bad pain. Yes, I get the mild muscle reaction that you mention, I would not call it pain, or maybe "good pain", because it's sort of normal, muscles have been used so you "feel" them being a bit sore, it's like after a football match, your body is a bit tired, but it goes away easy (say after a couple of beers :-)).
