How to Dress

To ensure you have an enjoyable time at the mountain; dressing appropriatley is an important part of the day.  Dressing in layers is key and your outermost layer should be waterproof.  Follow the hints and tips below.  

  • Hat - if your head is warm the rest of you is likely to stay warm.
  • Helmets - this is a personal choice.  We do offer Helmet's for rent for $10 a day
  • Waterproof Gloves/Mittens - waterproof is the key here.  Knit gloves are a no-no.
  • Goggles/Sunglasses - Goggles are strongly recommended on cold or snowy days for warmth and increased visibility.
  • Jacket/Parka (water resistant)
  • Synthetic or wool base layers for top & bottom - it's better to be warm than cold, you can always shed layers. Synthetic materials help to wisk moisture away from your skin. Once again, do not wear cotton as a base layer---remember the saying "cotton is rotten"! 
  • Snow/Water resistant pants - very important, your 1st day will acquaint your backside to be on the snow, keep it warm & dry.
  • Warm, dry socks - No cotton. Wear only one pair of socks.
  • Sunscreen - SPF 15 or higher
  • Lip Balm
