Skiing can be a great way to enjoy a day (or a week!) in the middle of the winter, as it will allow you to workout, get fresh air, and relax, all at the same time (and of course, all these things will combine to help you remain healthy and stay in great shape!), but one mistake a lot of people - especially those people who do not ski often - make is that they hit the slopes without all the equipment they need, and this causes their ski adventure to be a great big failure instead of a great big bundle of fun. In order to experience a successful ski adventure, the first thing you will need is some base layers that will wick sweat away from your body, as this will be necssary for keeping you dry and warm; a lot of people simply go with long underwear in order to stay warm when skiing, but realize that long underwear will have a tendency to absorb your sweat, which can leave you feeling cold and uncomfortable throughout the day, and for this reason it is often worth your time and money to find a base layer that will instead pull the sweat away from your body! On top of making sure your skin stays dry with good base layers, you will want to make sure the layers away from your body keep your base layers dry; make sure you have pants that prevent water from making its way to your legs, and make sure your coat is both water-resistant and wind-resistant so that you will stay warm as the day goes on. And you will be exerting a lot of energy when you are on the slopes, which means that you will do your body a favor if you replenish it with some water and some food throughout the day; a daypack is a great asset to a ski day, as you will be able to carry water and food in this daypack (as well as extra gloves, scarves, and hats, in case the ones you start out with begin to get really wet), and will be able to keep up your energy throughout the day. Make sure you hit the slopes with all the proper equipment, and your day on the slopes will be that much more likely to be a great success!
