Planning Makes Vacations More Enjoyable
While any vacation takes planning, ski vacations also require specific planning as it relates to clothing and equipment. Being able to enjoy your trips down a mountainside will depend on the condition of your equipment and that includes your clothing. In the past socks were the biggest issue as keeping your feet warm while skiing is especially important. Two or even three pairs of socks stuffed into your ski boots were not unusual.
Today, newer blends of materials are making socks water and wind proof helping to maintain warmth at the extremities. Being able to enjoy the day with warm feet helps to make ski vacations that much more enjoyable. Coats, hats and goggles also need to be in good condition to protect you from the elements associated with skiing.
Safety is paramount among all skiers, and steering off the marked paths can lead to danger and people getting lost. It is always best to stay on the beaten paths, where other people are skiing in case of an injury, you will be found quickly. Those that do veer off on their own run the risk of being lost for extended period of time, in weather conditions that are not always kind to humans.
