The EQUIPMENT

Advice:

We also recommend wearing the helmet for all, wrists and impact shorts for snowboarders.

Always wear warm, dry and comfortable clothes and ideally thermal clothing.

 

Imperative equipment: gloves, sunscreen, sunglasses or a ski mask.

We recommend storing your shoes in a warm, dry place at night and make sure you are comfortable in them. Only one pair of socks is enough.
