What to Wear On Your Next Ski Trip
Even if summer is around the corner there is year round destinations for the snow lovers. Summer skiing means heading to the highest peaks of North America and Europe or flying to the Southern Hemisphere—New Zealand, Australia, Chile or Argentina—where the winter season is in full swing from June to October. Check out the list of some of the best destinations here.
No matter what else you pack for your next ski trip, make sure you pack these essentials. A ski trip can get uncomfortable fast if you don’t prepare with the right clothing.
One of the most important things for you to pack on your ski trip is a tough outer layer. You need something warm, waterproof, and breathable. Depending on your ski conditions, you may want insulated women’s ski wear or just a jacket.
Layering is important in case you get too hot. If you plan to ski in warmer conditions, like spring skiing, then something thin you can layer is appropriate. If you will be in a colder climate, something insulated is more suitable. ML Furs real fur coats are perfect.
You want ski pants that aren’t bulky or baggy, but that allow you to move down the slopes with ease. ML Furs women’s ski pants are perfect because they are stretchy and breathable. The waistline won’t dig into your stomach, and they’re waterproof, so you stay dry and warm.
For added insulation, quality base layers help you regulate body temperature and wick away sweat. You can get lightweight or heavy, depending on your preference or the conditions. They’re made of a variety of materials. If you want something natural, you can choose wool, or if you have sensitive skin, choose synthetic.
Using short-sleeved shirts as your bottom layer can help with air flow, but you want to make sure you choose something meant for active use. It should repel moisture and allow for flexible and comfortable movement.
Just as important as your clothes are your accessories. You can’t ski without a helmet or goggles. Your helmet should be lightweight and comfortable, keeping your head protected while you forget you even have one on. A helmet with internal lining will be more comfortable and keep your head warm, while one with removable ear flaps will help you let air in if you get too hot.
You can get goggles with interchangeable lenses depending on the lighting conditions, which is the way to go when the sun is beating down and reflecting brightly off of the snow. Choosing a pair of goggles in the same brand as your helmet will ensure that you don’t have a gap in between the two, resulting in a very cold head!
Make sure you get a good pair of gloves for the slopes to keep your hands dry and warm. If you get leather gloves, treat them with a waterproof leather treatment beforehand to give them extra life and protection.
Because ski boots have enough insulation, choose a lightweight sock without a toe seam that has cushion and ventilation. This will help you stay warm and dry and prevent blisters. The right pair of socks will have support in all the right places and won’t bunch up or get uncomfortable inside your boot.
Because you don’t want to stay in your ski boots any longer than you have to, make sure you have a cozy, cute pair of boots to change into. Fur boots are comfortable and classy and will keep you warm in the cold weather when you’re not skiing.
Make sure you have all of these essentials, and your trip is sure to be a blast!
