It was an amazing trip. Snow was awesome and our guide made sure everything was planned to perfection. Would definitely recommend for anyone who wants to enjoy the snow while also getting a taste of what Queenstown has to offer!
The best items to wear when skiing are: a close fitting base layer to help retain warmth, a mid-layer fleece, a waterproof ski jacket, a pair of ski trousers (or salopettes), ski socks, ski boots, waterproof gloves, suncream, a lip balm, a pair of goggles with UV protection, a wooly hat, and a helmet.
What should I wear for snowboarding?
Similar to the outfit for skiing, the best items to wear when snowboarding are the following: long wool or synthetic underwear, a light fleece or wool top, ski socks, a waterproof, well-insulated jacket, waterproof pants, a pair of gloves, goggles, a neck gaiter or balaclava, and a helmet. Don't forget to apply plenty of sunscreen on your exposed skin and make sure your gear is equipped with Recco reflectors, in case you need to be rescued.
