3. Expect To Keep Moving
4. Know What You Want
5. Get Ready To Try Something New
6. Acclimate & Hydrate
7. Dress Appropriately (Layers, Layers, Layers)
8. Have Properly Fitted Equipment
Properly fitted and aligned boots maximize your experience, as does quality, contemporary equipment. If your boots don't fit properly, they will not only affect your ability and comfort, they will become a major distraction. Take the time to visit a ski/snowboard shop beforehand — such as Four Mountain Sports, which has locations at the base of all four mountains — to make sure your equipment is dialed-in before your lesson.
