Be Prepared

Sun Care
To ensure you have a safe and fun day on the slopes, remember these tips to protect you from the sun and its radiation. 

  • Wear pants, long sleeves, and gloves even on warm days. 
  • Put on a hat or helmet that covers your ears.
  • Wear 100% UV protection goggles or sunglasses.
  • Apply generous amounts of SPF 30+ sunscreen on exposed skin every two hours.
  • It’s not the heat of the sun that causes skin damage but radiation from the sun. 

What to look for in sunblock:
  • SPF 30 or higher
  • Broad Spectrum
  • Zinc Oxide, titanium dioxide or both

Dress Appropriately

  • Dress in layers. Layering allows you to accommodate your body’s constantly changing temperature. When buying skiwear, look for fabric that is water and wind-resistant. Look for wind flaps to shield zippers, snug cuffs at wrists and ankles, collars that can be snuggled up to the chin and deep pockets. 

  • Be prepared. Mother Nature has a mind of her own. Remember to wear gloves or mittens (mittens are usually better for kids who are susceptible to cold hands). Also, 80% of heat-loss is through the head, a helmet is warm and many models cover the ears, ensuring a warmer experience. Don't forget your sunglasses or goggles. Skiing is a lot more fun when you can see. Always wear eye protection. 

Preparing for Altitude

You're at more than 7,000 feet in Aspen/Snowmass so you may feel the effects of altitude sickness so remember to drink plenty of water to decrease the risk of dehydration.
