What do I need to bring?
Preparation is key to have a great day on the slopes, so when you pack for your first trip to the snow, remember to include: • Boots or shoes with a bit of a tread for all family members. • Dress warm! It can be a bit brisk on the mountain so it’s important to layer up. Thermals, (merino is a great base layer), a thicker mid-layer top and ski or hiking socks. • Waterproof pants and a jacket are a must to keep yourself dry and to protect you from the changing conditions (rentals are available on the mountain). • No one wants a goggle burn! Sunscreen and lip balm to protect you and your family from the UV rays so you do not end up with a goggle tan. • Eye protection is important, even on cloudy days – and don’t forget goggles or sunnies for the kids! • We recommend wearing a helmet on the snow, you can hire one from us or purchase at the retail shop. • Waterproof gloves. • If you forget anything, almost everything you need is available right here on the mountain at our rental shop and the Sno Shop. And if you get hungry or thirsty, we’ve got you covered at our restaurant and café.
