How To Layer When You Go Skiing

if you have a big ski trip planned this year but you don't live in a part of the country where you have a lot of snow, then you may not know how to pack or even where to begin preparing. One of the best things that you can do when you go skiing is to layer; that way if you get really hot, then you can just take off a layer and not have to worry about it. But what layers should you wear? Luckily, this article will list a few layers that you should pack with you. Read on to learn more. 

Long Sleeve Performance Tee

For one of your base layers, you want something that's tight and breathable so that it keeps you warm but it doesn't make you overheat. Try getting a long sleeve performance tee because they have moisture wicking fabric so that you don't get sweaty. The tee will wick away sweat and keep you warm and insulated at the same time. And if you strip away all of your other layers, it should still keep you warm as long as you keep moving while you're on the slopes. 

Long Pants

Another thing that you will want to bring is some long underwear pants or running tights. These are another great base layer for you to wear under your ski pants—especially if it's really cold outside. If it's not that cold, though, then skip this layer because it may make you overheat and be really uncomfortable for the rest of the time. But, if the temperatures are frigid, then these are a definite must for everyone to wear. 


What are you going to wear over your long sleeve performance tee? A sweatshirt! Either a pull over sweatshirt or a zip-up sweatshirt is a great layer to wear under your coat but over your performance tee. When you are looking for a sweatshirt, make sure that it's made of a warm material like fleece so that you stay really warm. Just remember that you can always take off this layer if you get too hot. 

As you can see there are several different things that you should pack with you when you go on a ski trip. Make sure that you pack enough layers so that you can plan on different temperatures and different types of weather. In addition to these basic layers, don't forget your hat, goggles, and gloves as well.
