What could you think about winter?

Overcoats? Christmas? or Snow?

Today, I want to introduce a famous sport in winter. It is “ski”.

First, what should we prepare before we ski?

Skis

All skis have four basic measures that define their basic performance: length, width, sidecut and camber. So it is very important to choose a suitable skis.

Ski Boots

Ski boots are specialized footwear that are used in skiing to provide a way to attach the skier to skis using ski bindings. The ski/boot/binding combination is used to effectively transmit control inputs from the skier’s legs to the snow.

Ski Poles

Now, composite ski poles are much lighter and stronger than aluminum poles, though aluminum poles are still one of the main types of ski pole on the market.

Ski Clothing

The best ski clothing will allow optimal movement, look great, and keep you warm. Skiing base layer clothing should be lightweight and tight fitting to keep your body heat in and sweat out.

Ski Gloves

Ski gloves are an important part of your ski wardrobe, and unless you want cold hands, they can’t be overlooked as a non-important accessory. After all, a pair of well-fitting, warm ski gloves or ski mittens can make your ski day a lot better! Here is a selection of some of the best men’s ski gloves and ski mittens.

Ski Goggles

Although you may not realize it due to the cold temperatures, the sun is extremely strong on the mountain. Bright snow reflects the sunlight, and higher altitudes means the sun’s UV rays are ultra-powerful. Protect your eyes and increase your visibility by wearing ski goggles. Polarized lenses are especially helpful in reducing glare.

Here is more information about skiing.
