What should I wear?
- Due to ever-changing conditions, we recommend dressing in layers.
Thermal long underwear or tights as a base layer is recommended.
Socks should be a wool/polyester blend and not too bulky, one pair of socks is sufficient.
Outer layer should be water and wind resistant. If your outer layer is not insulated, add extra layers underneath for warmth.
Wool and polyester/fleece blends are warmer and drier than cotton.
A warm hat is necessary on cold days; on warmer days (above 0°C) a headband or cap are sufficient. We recommend the use of helmets but it is not mandatory.
Gloves or mittens are essential.
Wear goggles to protect your eyes on snowy and/or windy days.
Sunscreen is strongly recommended for sunny days.

Tips for Your First Lesson
Where do lessons start?
The meeting area for all lessons is just around the corner from the Sports School office and right at the base of our beginner area.
Sun Peaks has some of the best beginner terrain anywhere; from our beginner-only area to Gentle Giant and Homesteader, we offer fantastic progression on the mountain that helps beginners learn easily and quickly. Our various carpets and surface lifts are well adapted and easy to use.
Our 'Learn to Ski/Snowboard' packages include skis and snowboards that tend to be shorter and more flexible, putting the emphasis on ease of skiing rather than performance, giving beginners much more confidence.
Ski and snowboard boots should provide a relaxed and comfortable fit, designed to feel snug when done up providing foot stability. Remember, ski socks are preferable and one pair is sufficient.
Ski poles are useful for balance and rhythm while skiing, learning with poles is a good idea.
Always wear a helmet and other protective gear.
Remember to take it easy, and stop for the occasional rest.
Stay hydrated throughout the day.
Follow the Alpine Responsibility Code.
