Let’s begin with those all-important base layers. The clothing you put closest to your skin should be:
• Nice and warm to keep your body at a constant and comfortable temperature
• Moisture wicking to repel sweat away
The best skiing base layers tend to be close fitting but quite thin so you don’t overheat. Long sleeve tops and leggings (tucked into each other) are a great choice, as are thermals made from breathable merino wool or specially engineered synthetic fabrics. Don’t forget a good pair of thick ski socks, either!
