What To Wear on the Mountain
Are you a first time skier or boarder? Or are you tired of being cold and wet after a day on the slopes? Dressing the right way can make the difference between an epic ski day and cold, wet misery. Follow these simple guidelines to stay warm and dry.
Your foundation layer is essential to staying warm and dry. Use wool blend, silk or synthetic technical fabrics that fit close to the body so they effectively wick moisture away from your skin. Cotton is a poor choice because it holds moisture next to your skin.
Not the cotton tube socks you wore in gym class—those will get soaked and leave you with cold, wet feet. You’ll want a low to medium cushion sock with some stretch in a wool or synthetic blend that will wick moisture away from your feet
