29 November 2011
Booked a skiing holiday? If it’s your first time on the piste, it can be a daunting task deciding what equipment and clothing you’ll need. Unfortunately, unlike other holidays you can’t pack the basics in the hope that if you run out of clothes you can hotfoot it to the nearest shop. With a skiing holiday, you really do need to be prepared, which is why we’ve put together some top tips to help you plan your checklist.
Any good cub scout knows it’s best to be prepared, so ensure you buy all the necessary gear to keep warm while you’re out enjoying yourself. Insulated jackets should help keep you toasty and warm, while waterproof trousers and insulated leggings and pants will ensure you’re kept dry during your holiday.
Don’t forget to pack gloves, too. Many come with elasticated ribbed cuffs that seal the wrists, as well as having a stretchy fit and a good grip on the palm.
Ski socks are also a must to keep feet warm and dry; no one wants their holiday ruined thanks to cold, soggy feet and legs. Plan early and shop around for the best deals to ensure your trip isn’t a costly one. There are lots of great deals on skiing essentials, perfect for all budgets.
Stay stylish while out on the slopes
Having the right equipment doesn’t have to mean looking frumpy and uncool. There’s a fantastic range of ski-appropriate gear online to suit everyone and for all ages. Brands like The North Face offer the very best in ski equipment and footwear, to ensure you are as safe and as comfortable as possible during your adventure.
Keep all your skiing essentials in a handy rucksack. Just make sure you opt for a lightweight bag to save you carting anything too heavy up and down the slopes each day.
Choose the right footwear
As with any serious or professional sport, you often need the right footwear to give yourself the best chance possible. You wouldn’t turn up to a football pitch without some decent football boots, and you’d struggle to tap dance without the right tap shoes. The same goes for skiing; so you need to make sure you’re properly kitted out with the correct footwear.
The great news is snow boots and ski ice grips will help you tackle the ski slopes and ice in style and comfort. They also come in a range of sizes and styles, with shoes available for everyone in the family. Offering warmth and protection from the harsh elements, boots like these are ideal for wintry conditions. With added grip to keep feet sturdy as you negotiate ice and snow, snow boots are extremely durable and will last you ski season after ski season.
Protect your head
Protect your head and ears from the bitter cold with a suitable and warm ski hat. Balaclava-style hats will help keep your whole face warm and toasty while you’re out on the ski slope and ear warmers will save you from dreaded earache.
Snoods are also a great idea to protect your head from the harsh weather. Why not take a look at the great selection online and start ticking off your holiday checklist.
You’ve got the right gear and you definitely look the part. Now all that’s left to do is enjoy yourself while out on the slopes. Plus, when you’ve had your skiing fix for the day, Hi-Tec offer comfortable, lightweight walking boots and shoes for a trip down to the local ski resort pub!
