SKI BOOTS should be well fitted & flexible. Only ONE pair of socks should be worn at a time, bring an extra pair to change into on cold days; wet socks = cold feet!
SKIS with BINDINGS properly set by certified technicians trained in this area.
Mandatory for practice & races.
Unbreakable to protect the eyes.
Clear lenses for evening practices.
Tinted lenses for sunny days.
Possibly a 2nd pair
HELMETS - ARE MANDATORY! They must be worn for practice and on race day. Helmets should have “hard” shell protection around the ears … NO soft ears!
Dress for the weather—it’s winter time!
REMEMBER the temperatures on the chair lift and the ski hill are possibly colder than in your backyard. Layering works best! If you don’t wear it there, bring it along for warmth later. Better to have extra layers instead of standing outside freezing!
