Night Skiing Tips:
Bring some sort of bandana or neck warmer that you can pull up over the bottom of your face to protect it from wind burn and frost bite.
After the sun sets for the night, the temperature really drops! Make sure to wear or bring added layers to keep yourself warm and dry!
Use goggles that have lighter lenses (yellow, light red, ect). Mirrored goggles can make it more difficult to see at night.
With dropping temperatures, the slopes become more icy. Use caution and be aware of ice patches, rough spots, and ice chunks!
Keeping dry makes all the difference when skiing at night! Bring an extra pair of gloves or use hand warmers to keep your fingers toasty!
If you get too cold, take a warm up break with some hot chocolate. It’s important to know your limits!
