On the slopes, having the right layering system for your ski clothing is vital. It will keep you warm, dry, and comfortable enabling you to perform at your best. The wrong skiing layering can leave you wet and cold, restrict movement and leave you miserable.
In this guide, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about layering for skiing, what you should wear, and, importantly, what ski gear you shouldn’t wear.
When it comes to a ski layering system, typically it can be broken down into three areas.
The best base layers will wick sweat away and trap body heat.
The best next and mid layers will insulate body heat and warm air.
Finally, outer layers are crucial in snow. They should be waterproof to protect you in extreme weather conditions - wind, snow, and rain.
