When going on a winter sports trip, it’s important to bring appropriate gear to ensure your safety and comfort. Here are some essential items to consider packing:
Remember, always check the weather forecast and trail conditions before heading out, and follow all safety guidelines and rules of the resort or mountain.
When it comes to ski and snowboard rentals, there is a noticeable variation in quality. However, none of the options can compare to the high standards found in modern European ski resorts. While the equipment may be slightly older, it is generally well-maintained.
It is important to carefully consider the ski materials offered by rental shops, and don’t be afraid to request alternative options. It is always better to speak up and ensure that you are comfortable with the gear you will be using.
If you happen to own your own equipment, it is highly recommended that you bring it with you. This will guarantee that you are using gear that you are familiar with and have tested before.
