  • These are what you need if you are going snow-boardingor skiing.
  • *Jackets - A warm and comfortable jacket is a must, water proofing is a plus.
  • *Waterproof Pants - Water proof over-pantsare best, jeans are about the worst. If you wear jeans, wear a heavy pair of sweatpants over it.
  • *Hats - A hat is needed for warmth when it’s windy or snowing.
  • *Gloves - Hands are usually the first part of the body to get cold. Waterproof gloves or mittens are important in staying warm and dry.
  • *Eyewear - Goggles are best because they protect the eyes from the elements of winter - sun, wind, and blowing snow. Sunglasses are better suited for milder weather and sunny days.
  • Clothing appropriate for the mountains will help insure that you will enjoy your skiing experience. Keep your body warm by dressing in layers that will allow you to customize according to the weather and temperature.
