Bundle up with these skiing and snowboarding Pro Tips for a warm, comfortable adventure on the mountain.
When prepping for a trip to the slopes, it’s important to remember all the essentials, especially dressing in layers.
While bundling up in cold weather clothes might not be a new concept to you, understanding what to wear when skiing and snowboarding can be a bit more in-depth. DICK’S Sporting Goods Associate Molly Reichwald offers a quick breakdown on the essential layering systems for your next run down the mountain.
You can wear a singular top, but feel free to complete your foundation with a bottom base layer, too. “I really like to wear a top base layer and a bottom base layer,” Reichwald adds.
BONUS PRO TIP: Consider layering a vest over your initial mid layer to add more warmth to your core. This can free up your arms for more usability when skiing or snowboarding.
In addition to your layering system for skiing and snowboarding, your accessories need to be right for the job, too. Use these quick tips to complete your winter ensemble with ease.
Hand warmers are air-activated and can last up to eight hours. When using these accessories, be sure to place them on top of your hand, not in your palm. This allows you to grip or hold items without a problem while still benefitting from your hand warmers.
Just like snowflakes on the ski lift, each body is different. You might need to add or remove items to best match your comfort level. Stay warm and cozy with the right number of layers for your needs.
