Buy Ski Passes

What should I wear when skiing or snowboarding?

The key items to bring with you, along with the obvious ski jacket, ski trousers, helmet and sunglasses, are as follows:

Wearing a helmet in ski lessons is strongly recommended, but not a legal requirement.

Weather on the mountain can change pretty quickly, and you are much better off wearing layers of thinner items as opposed to a big, bulky jumper. Try thermal tops and leggings, fleeces and hoodies. 

A variety of socks ranging in thickness, it may sound weird but in our experience hire boots can be quite painful with the wrong socks.

Sun cream
Even when it’s cloudy the sun here can (and will) still get you, and don't forget the underneath of your chin as the sun reflects off the snow too. Don't forget a lip salve with an SPF.
