How to Dress:

3-layer approach
1. Wicking (worn next to your skin keeping moisture and sweat away from your skin).
2. Insulating (middle layer that keeps the cold out and the warmth in)
3. Protection (exterior layer to guard against elements)
Turtleneck shirts, sweaters, long underwear, footless tights are good options as under layers.  Avoid cotton next to your skin at it will absorb sweat and make you shiver.  Wool or acrylic socks are better than cotton can lead to unwanted blisters.

 

Helpful Hints 

1. First layer should fit snugly in order to properly wick moisture
2. Insulating layer should be loose enough to trap air between your layers but not too bulky yet allowing a full range of movement.
3. Denim and cotton are not recommended as the dampness will soak through and you will end up cold.
4. Wearing eye protection having UV protection is very important
5. Goggles should fit above the eyebrows and below cheekbones, there should be no gaps around the nose and should be sealed all around
6. Extra socks will only restrict circulation and result in cold feet
7. Many individuals forget about the effects of the sun, against the background of the snow.  The suns rays are very strong, skin and eye protection are a most.  Protect skin with UV protective sun screen and eyes with UV protective glasses
8. Good idea to have some loose change to purchase a locker or a well deserved hot chocolate break
9. Gloves and hand wear should be water resistant.  If snowboarding, wrist guards are a smart preventative tool
10. Long scarves or should stay at home at it is a safety issues with regards to lifts and sight of gliding skier/rider
11. The resort is not responsible for lost times – bring only what you need – purses, I-pads, jewelry, video games are best left at home.  If you must bring any of these items it is highly recommended to rent a locker of for the day
