WHAT YOU NEED

Skiing/Snowboarding for the first time...

Never been skiing or snowboarding and you are wondering what clothes and equipment you will need on your holiday. We have put together a definitive list of equipment below. It is not essential to purchase boots, skis, poles and snowboards to take with you as these items will incur additional travel cost to yourselselves and they can be hired. About ten weeks before your holiday, you will receive details for the cost of hiring equipment for the trip. Helmets can be hired, but for your comfort, we recommend purchasing your own helmet before you go.
