what to wear for Skiing

Skiing and ski touring means exertion. Ascending mountains and pushing your limits takes energy. Choose fully breathable layers and wicking base layers to keep you dry and comfortable. When temperatures plummet, wear thermal base layers that regulate your temperature and add mid layers for extra warmth. Round off your outfit with windproof and waterproof outer layers that allow complete freedom of movement.

Base Layer

When it comes to high energy activities like skiing, warmer doesn’t always mean better. A base layer is the one closest to your skin. It’s the foundation to your comfort. Choose a garment that’s lightweight, regulates your temperature and wicks away moisture. Merino is a fabric that meets all of these requirements effectively. For additional muscle support when active, choose a base layer with a variable knit.

 

Middle Layer

Your mid layer is your most versatile layer. Add or remove warmth as you increase or decrease your level of activity. Look for pieces that are lightweight for freedom of movement whilst being warm and breathable. PrimaLoft® is ideal insulation for the task, offering incredible warmth without weight. Wind- and water-resistant garments will also ensure heat retention and comfort.

 

Outer Layer

This is your weatherproof layer. High-energy ski touring requires a very breathable, freely moving technical shell without insulation. GORE-TEX® and Musto’s BR2 fabric provide protection from the elements and a highly breathable structure.
