First Timers' Guide
Here are guidelines to help you prepare for your first visit to our Resort:

Clothing
Maintaining your body temperature in varying weather conditions is a tricky business. Because your personal comfort is the starting point, select clothing that is waterproof, breathable and loose fitting. Think in terms of layering by adding or taking off articles depending upon outside temperature and your level of exertion. The innermost layer should be long thermal underwear, either light or medium weight. Choose a fabric with wicking properties such as polypropylene to transport moisture away from the skin. Loose-fitting, insulated shell pants are preferable to tight stretch pants that tend not to be warm, waterproof or particularly comfortable for a beginner.

For the upper body, you already have what you need in your closet – a turtleneck with a sweater or fleece (spun pile polyester) shirt. For the outer jacket, you should wear a winter jacket with good insulation.

Wear a pair of wool socks, opting for thicker material if you’re renting boots since they’re often one size larger than new boots. Avoid double pairs of socks, which tend to chafe and bulk.

For heat retention, a wool hat covering the ears is essential, preferably one with a no-itch headband linger. Select a pair of orange or amber goggles with good air circulation, a double lens and an anti-fog coating. Invest in a good pair of waterproof, breathable mittens or gloves for greater dexterity.

Our Boutique, inside the Skiers’ Service area, has a variety of mittens, gloves, socks and hats to keep you warm.

Slopes for beginners
The easiest trails are identified by a green circle. Your instructor will show where you should ski after your lesson.
