Tips to remember:

  • Layers of clothing are best. Base layer should be a fitted thermal shirt, then layered with a turtleneck or long sleeveshirt, if desired, follow with a fleece or sweatshirt. Outer layer should be a warm, water resistant ski jacket. Wearing too little can result in frostbite, but wearing too much can result in over-heating. Layers keep you warmer and allow you to remove if necessary.
  • Wear thin wool or poly socks, thick ones are too bulky and don't keep your feet as warm.
  • Wear water-proof gloves or mittens with rubber lining on outside for easy grip.
  • Use a gaiter or facemask. Gaiters are basically felt tubes that you slip on your neck and pull up to keep your mouth and nose warm.
  • 80% of heat is lost through your head, so wear a ski or knit cap and cover your ears too.
  • Helmets are highly recommended to keep you safe and protected. You never know what could happen and even expert skiers fall. Your current bicycle or skateboard helmet should be worn for this snow trip to prevent possible head injuries.
  • Bring goggles and/or sunglasses for eye protection. The sun reflects off the snow and can be harsh on the eyes. Additionally, ultraviolet radiation is 36% higher at high altitude than at sea level.
