We’ve asked some of our customers and employees to share some of their secrets on how they stay warm on the slopes. Hopefully you’ll find some of their secrets helpful.
- I never wear my ski socks when I drive to my destination because they’ll be damp when I arrive. Instead, I put them on when I arrive. This way my socks are dry which help my feet stay warm.
- I have a heated boot bag which plugs into my car as I drive to the slopes. When I arrive, my boots, socks, headliner, gloves and helmet are nice and toasty.
- I use my expedition weight base layers and lots of heat packs on cold days to stay warm.
- My zippered neck warmer. It doesn’t allow the heat in my ski jacket to escape and if I get too warm, I can unzip it to vent.
- I recommend anyone that gets cold hands and feet to get battery heated gloves and battery boot heaters. It’s the best investment I’ve ever made to stay warm. I also use them for sitting during football games.
- If I ate before I went on the slopes, I got cold easier. Now I don’t eat until I’ve been on the slopes for a few hours. I also drink a cup of hot chocolate before going out. This gets me warm.
- I’m too old for cold days. I only ski when it’s above 20 degrees and sunny. This way I don’t get cold.
- I cover up any bare skin when I board. Most of the time no one can tell who I am because I have on so much clothing.
- I wear mittens on real cold days and gloves on other days.
- It’s simple, I go inside when I get cold.
- My feet always got damp then they got cold. Someone told me to spray my feet with antiperspirant to keep my feet dry. Try it!
- My Descente jacket and pants. Never again will I cheap out on ski clothing. I like staying warm.
- I read somewhere if you keep your body core warm, the rest of the body will stay warmer. So I bought a battery heated vest and guess what, it keeps me much warmer!
- When I go boarding on real cold days, I keep moving and get aggressive to work up body heat. If I stop, I get cold.
- They say heat arise so I always wear a hat or helmet.
