First Time Skiing Tips for Families

You’ve booked your first family ski trip… now what? So much preparation goes into the experience that it can seem downright intimidating, especially for beginners. That’s why we’ve rounded up several tips, with advice from start (packing the right gear) to finish (actually getting out on the slopes).

What to Pack

-Skin-tight, thermal underwear/layers, such as Under Armor shirts and pants
-Ankle socks and thick knee socks, also known as ski socks
-Toe warmers
-Turtlenecks
-Ski pants (preferably with suspenders)
-Gloves and mittens
-Ski goggles
-Face mask that covers your entire face except for your eyes (which will be covered by ski goggles)
-Head warmer to wear under helmet — covers your entire head, as well as cheeks, ears and neck
-Walkie Talkies to communicate with family members on the mountain (cell reception can be scarce on the slopes)
