Ski Essentials for Beginners

Packing your bags and jetting off to your chosen ski destination neednít be stressful. Whether you are planning to try out the blue runs in Courchevel or going further afield to Lake Tahoe, your kit bag will be the same. Walk into any ski shop and you will be faced with a daunting amount of skiwear from ski boots and skis to jackets and accessories. How do you decide which items are essential for your trip? If you are hitting the slopes for the first time, here is the ultimate checklist for beginners.

Ski Clothing

It is essential to invest in some high quality ski gear as this will keep you warm and dry for the duration of your stay. It is easy to carried away when faced with so many options but realistically all you need for your skiing trip are a waterproof pair of ski trousers, base layer thermals to keep out the cold, a few high quality thermal fleece tops and a high performance ski jacket. These are the basic items that you will need for your trip.

Ski Accessories

Once you have invested in the big purchases, it is time to finish off your look with some stylish accessories. You will need a few comfortable pairs of ski socks as well as a pair of ski gloves. You have the option of purchasing glove liners for extra warmth but these are not essential. Ski glasses are essential to protect your eyes from the sunís glare and goggles are a worthy investment should the weather worsen. A stylish beanie hat will keep you cosy and a neck warmer will finish off your look perfectly.
If you want to get the best deals on skiwear, go online to secure a bargain. You can shop for the best industry brands and save money on your ski essentials. Regatta Online - Outdoor Clothing Specialists have great deals to suit every budget.
