What to Expect
Skiing is a fun and exhilarating sport! It’s relatively easy to learn, and a great way to enjoy the winter snow.
Skiing can be surprisingly affordable, especially when you attend on family days or with other special deals. The gear you need is skis and ski boots, with ski poles being optional – all of which can be rented.
What to Wear
Dressing properly is the most important part of skiing! You need a warm, water resistant coat and ski pants, thick socks, a warm hat, water resistant gloves and proper eye protection. What you might not also realize is that sunscreen is incredibly important! Even though it’s cold, you can quickly get a sunburn thanks to the sunlight reflecting off of the bright white snow – so be sure to put sunscreen on any exposed skin!
You Might See…
When you’re skiing, it’s fun to observe how the forest looks in the winter time. Icicles hanging off of tree branches, plants that are heavy with snow, and frost-bitten leaves are all beautiful, natural occurrences. You might also see some neat patterns in the snow from other skiers and snowboarders!
