When heading out to the slopes you need to be prepared for the cold weather, we let you know the secrets to packing thermals and other clothes for your trip to make sure you don’t forget anything.
Clothing when you head to a ski resort is not all about skiwear anymore, with ski villages offering much more than just your simple slope. There are a lot of other aspects of clothing you will need to take with you and it is important to know which garments are necessary and which are simply an option.
Firstly, you will need to consider things such nightwear in the chalet or hotel. This allows you to be able to get out of your skiing clothing and change into something a little more comfortable and lightweight to be able to relax properly in the evening.
Nightwear should usually consist of things such as;
- Jogging Pants – Jogging pants are not essential but are often taken along for a ski retreat due to their baggy, comfortable and warm nature. The only problem with jogging pants is that they can stay wet for huge amounts of time and therefore if you have to go outside for any reason they can become damp and hold that cold moisture for hours.
- Thermal Wear – Thermal wear is a great type of garment to be able to relax in the evenings as it offers a body wrapping fit, heated interior to be able to keep you warm and maintain that heat for a prolonged period of time. There is also moisture wicking technology in a wide range of thermal brands, which allows you to be able to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the night, in turn preventing you becoming cold or over heating whilst you are trying to sleep.
- Comfortable T-shirt – A comfortable T-shirt is a common and reasonably self-explanatory option for your upper body, it is usually baggy and allows you to be able to relax in comfort. However, as it is not thermal wear, it can quickly become too hot or cold and in turn, you may feel uncomfortable and have to adjust your chalet or hotel room’s temperature if possible.
However, you can easily rid yourself of all of this and head for the benefits of S’No Queen Thermals with added extra’s such as moisture wicking technology, skin wrapped fit, flawless design and elasticised materials to ensure a full range of movement and so that the garment doesn’t lose shape.
On The Slopes
Secondly, you will need to consider your actual snow wear while you are on the slopes. This means you will be able to stay warm and in turn be more at home on the slopes without having to fight off the cold and the wet environment whilst you are on the slopes.
Snow clothing should usually comprise of the following;
- Ski Pants – To be able to maintain a high level of warmth on your legs during your time on the slopes, whilst also being cushioned to absorb fall damage and waterproof to prevent you getting wet legs if you were to fall. These are a very high priority item when it comes to packing for your holiday.
- Ski Jacket – Your Ski Jacket is to be able to maintain a high level of heat on your upper body, whilst also having an array of pockets and storage to be able to carry items such as your ski pass, phone and other things you may need through the day. Your ski jacket should also be a high priority in your packing list for your ski retreat.
- Ski Goggles – Ski googles are necessary, as they are handy for a huge range of reasons, it is not simply eye protection anymore. The goggles do not only prevent snow flying backward from the person in front or the natural snowfall falling into your eyes, but they also aid you in things such as blocking out sun so that you do not strain your eyes and also prevent cold wind making the eyes become dry or cold through the day. Well worth investing in if you are heading to the slopes this winter.
- Gator – your gator is also very important as it prevents wind chill as you head down the slopes at speed. The water vapour in the air can hurt the bare face through it being run past the sensitive skin at a high speed, a wind gator prevents this contact and in turn saves your skin the bane of cold air.
- Fleece – The Fleece is a very important as it means that you can take away your ski jacket when you get too hot and still maintain a high core temperature, in turn not freezing or becoming too cold out on the slopes.
- Base Layer – A base layer is an intricate part to skiing as it means that you can maintain a warm body even if you take away your coat and fleece. Base layers need to have some form of moisture wicking technology to be able to maintain a steady level of core temperature and in turn ensure you do not get to hot or cold. This is a vital part of the thermal wears build up, as being too hot can cause dehydration and being too cold can cause you to suffer from hypothermia or discomfort. Unlike other thermals, S’No Queen has an amazing build up to be able to maintain this core temperature meaning that it is a perfect garment for the job.
Thirdly, you will need to consider things to wear in the evenings if you are going out for food or a meal, as snow gear becomes very warm in the evenings due to the atmosphere in the bars and restaurants. Your eveningwear completely depends on what you plan on doing in the evenings, your choices should change depending on if you’re heading to a picturesque restaurant as oppose to heading to a bar and we all know it falls to personal taste. So for this reason there is no given list for this category.
However, S’No Queen Thermals are always a great choice for eveningwear as they can be worn as nightwear, on the slopes and fit in just as easily in a restaurant or bar due to their comfortable and flawless design. Take a look at our full range of ladies thermals for more information.
