Ski Lessons: Day 3

Updated: Nov 17, 2019


Night Before:

A sure way to get started on the right foot is planning ahead so you can enjoy your morning coffee on the drive up the mountain. I like to have all of my prepping done the night before: gear, food, and cloths ready for action!

Here is a sample plan: I use Kodiak Cakes because they are high in protein which means they will last longer, and pair it with a portable peanut butter option. I also love the trader joe’s olives in a handy to go packet. Plus a vegetable/fruit is a must, and offers a well-balanced meal option. Make sure to also have a water bottle handy to rehydrate!

We also like to have all of our boots inside the house the night before so that they are warm. Also, we check the weather to ensure that we give ourselves plenty of time to get up to the mountain.

Here is a list of what we bring up on a typical day:

  • Snowboards/Skis

  • Boots

  • Hats/Helmets

  • Gloves

  • Handwarmers

  • Goggles

  • Coats

  • Ski pants

  • Warm Socks

  • Information regarding the lessons

  • Food/snacks

  • wallet

  • ski passes

  • thermos (hot water for cocoa/tea)

  • coffee mugs

  • towel (to wipe down boards/skis before putting in car)

  • backpack to carry stuff on the mountain

This is just the beginning! Check back soon to follow how the lessons went and what tips and tricks I have continued to learn.
