What to wear: Winter sports take place outdoors, in variable conditions. Warm clothing that you can move around comfortably in is appropriate. It is wise to bring lots of layers, including long underwear, a mid-layer of wool or fleece, and a waterproof outer layer. Do not wear jeans or sweatpants. Wear one pair of wool ski socks. Make sure to bring waterproof gloves or mittens, a neck warmer or scarf, and goggles or sunglasses. We do not sell ski apparel, but you can purchase anything you find you need (or forget) at Freestyle Ski Shop in Wintergreen's Mountain Inn and at the rental shop. Also, it is a good idea to label everything with your name and a phone number in case you misplace anything. Layers with both a windbreaking Jacket and Ski/rain pants for your legs. Have wool socks and possibly bring extra dry socks. Have a beanie or fleece ear warmers.

What to bring: Lunch, a waterbottle, and any snacks you may want throughout the day. Bring extra base layers to change in after a long day in case yours get sweaty.
