2. Helmet – protection not only from trees, but from of out of control skiers and boarders.
3. Wicking base layer – there’s no better way to stay warm then to stay dry.
4. Water – staying hydrated will save you a headache later.
5. Goggles – fog-resistant make a huge difference.
6. Mittens – instead of gloves, will keep your hands much warmer. Down is best!
7. Neck gator – will keep your neck and face warm on windy days.
8. Sun Screen – at 10,000 feet, the sun can be lethal.
9. Condition-specific tune and skis – fatter skis for powder, skinnier for snow-pack and the right tune for the specific snow conditions will improve your performance.
10. Hot chocolate and a warm cookie – a great treat to warm you up.
