Winter is around the corner, and for many of us, that means one thing—it’s time to dust off the skis. Whether you're a seasoned skier or just getting into it, feeling (and staying) comfortable is an important factor in how much you'll enjoy your time in the snow.
Let’s dive into different ways to make sure you stay comfortable on the slopes.
Dress for the Weather
We all know that hitting the slopes is a blast, but let's be real—comfort is key. And it starts with dressing for the weather. Don't just throw on a bunch of layers and call it a day– be smart about it. Opt for moisture-wicking base layers that'll keep you dry, and top it off with a waterproof, breathable outer layer. And hey, don't forget those ski-or-board specific socks!
Trust us, there's nothing worse than being wet and cold on the mountain.
Keep Your Energy Up
You're carving down the mountain, and then it hits you—a wave of fatigue. Keep your energy up with on-the-go snacks like trail mix or energy bars. Hydration is key too, so make sure you've got a water bottle with electrolytes handy. Remember, you're at a higher altitude, and your body needs all the fuel it can get.
Take Breaks When You Need Them
We get it, the mountain is calling, and you must go. But listen to your body, too. If you're feeling tired or your muscles are screaming for a break, heed the call. Find a cozy spot to rest, maybe near a fire pit or in a mountain café. A little downtime can make sure you’re recharged and ready to tackle more runs. Plus, it's a great chance to soak in those mountain views.
Invest in Fit
You've got your ski or snowboard, boots, and all your other mountain essentials. But how well do they fit? Poor fit can turn a day on the slopes into an uncomfortable ordeal– and fast. Make sure your boots are snug but not too tight, and that your ski or snowboard is the right size for your skill level. And let's not forget about the fit of your pants. Too loose, and you're pulling them up all day, while too tight, and you're in for an uncomfortable ride.
