Are you planning your first ski trip? Not sure how to prepare your ski equipment? Let Ao Doulang teach you how to prepare!

▌What should I prepare for skiing?

First of all, you need to understand what you need to prepare for skiing, which equipment can be rented, and which equipment you need to prepare yourself. The equipment required for skiing can be roughly divided into 5 categories from the inside to the outside, namely:

  1. Underwear - snow socks, inner pants, sweat-wicking bottom layer
  2. Thermal clothing - ski gloves, mid-layer warm clothing, scarf, wool hat
  3. Safety equipment - snow goggles, helmet, anti-fall pants, joint protective gear
  4. Snow suit -snow jacket, snow pants
  5. Ski package - skis, snowshoes, poles (ski only)

    Among them, ski sets and snowsuit sets can be rented at equipment rental stores, and safety equipment and rental stores have slowly begun to rent most items, so basically you only need to prepare your own underwear , warm clothing and some It’s fine as long as the rental shop doesn’t have safety equipment for rent~

    intimate clothing

    Because skiing is actually a sport that makes people sweat easily, especially for beginners, the bottom layer of clothing that is in direct contact with the skin should be light and thin and can quickly wick away sweat. The length of the snow socks should be longer than the widest part of the calf. In this place, it is recommended to buy special ski socks. In addition, if you have good mountaineering equipment, you can use it!

    warm clothes

    Because there are many opportunities for skiing to come into contact with the snow, ski gloves are a must-have , as well as other warm clothing such as mid-layer jackets, scarves, and woolen hats. Although the warmth of rented snowcoats is usually sufficient, the temperature and individual cold resistance vary. Therefore, it is recommended to bring one of each in case of emergency.

    safety equipment

    When skiing, due to safety issues, helmets and snow goggles are a must . As for joint protectors, it is recommended to wear them all first. After skiing a few times, you can adjust them based on personal experience. You can check yours first. Is there any equipment rental shop at the ski resort where you want to go?

    Finally, like snow goggles and protective gear that come into contact with the skin, If you have personal hygiene considerations, it is better to prepare yourself~
