The Skier’s Guide to Clothing and Gear

Family preparing for their skiA ski trip to ski chalets in St. Anton or some other ski resort can be the vacation you needed after months of hard work at the office. Before you go on your trip, of course, make sure you have all the clothing and gear you will need for your ski holiday. You can follow the brief guide below for help with clothing and gear if you don’t know what you need.

Jacket and Pants

First of all, you will need a ski jacket and ski pants. Although you can rent these pieces of clothing, you can purchase them if you plan to take ski trips regularly. When looking for a jacket and pants, you can find ones that you can wear during winter at home as well.

Rip Curl, Adidas, and H&M have jackets women may love to wear. The Adidas Performance Winter Jacket, for example, works great for slopes and après ski. You can even wear it during winter at home. For men, you can find great jackets from Arc’teryx and Patagonia such as the Arc’teryx Macai that offers durability and good insulation.

Goggles

In skiing, you need to cover your eyes besides your body. Goggles serve to protect your eyes from snow blindness. Cheap ski goggles can be enough. Women can have the violet-coloured Alpina Challenges Ski Goggles.

Helmet

Heads need protection on the slopes as well. Falling from a ski run can hurt, no matter how slow you go. You can purchase helmets from brands such as Roxy and others. A great helmet for women comes in Roxy’s Power Helmet in Hawaiian Tropik or Paradise Pink design.

Besides the clothing and gear mentioned above, you will also need gloves or mittens, several articles of clothing, ski socks, neck warmers, sunscreen, and, of course, the skis, poles, and boots. Again, you can rent these clothing lines and gear if you forget to bring any of them on your trip. It will be best, however, if you have purchased and have them ready well before your departure.
