Is food provided?
Light snacks will be provided for students. Individuals are encouraged to bring their own money for dinner if desired.
The key is to dress in layers! Start with your everyday base wear such as a t-shirt and a pair of leggings and add on from there such as a turtleneck and sweatpants. You can always peel off a layer if it gets too warm, but you can't add a layer if you did not bring one. Please dress accordingly!
Warm, waterproof coat. One that is waterproof and insulated is best!
Water-resistant pants. Snow pants work great however, if you don't have any, wear wind pants over sweatpants. Jeans will also work but will not keep you as dry.
Hat. Even in warmer temperatures, hats are a necessity (snow is still cold!). For very warm days, headbands work well.
Warm, waterproof mittens or gloves. Hands must be covered for using the rope tow. Mittens are generally warmer than gloves, but either is fine. Knit mittens or gloves get wet quickly, so try to use waterproof, durable mittens.
ONE Pair of Medium-Weight Socks. Many people think that more socks equal more warmth, but in this case, one good pair of socks is all you need. Layers of socks restrict circulation inside the boots and can cause blisters as well as cold feet. Socks should come up to at least mid-calf (no ankle socks) and knee-highs work the best.
NO Scarves or Hanging Strings. While scarves are great for everyday use, they can create a serious danger around ski area equipment. For neck warmth, wear a turtleneck or neck gaiter. Please remember to tuck in any hanging strings from coats or pants.
