Whether it’s beautiful bluebird days or freezing wintery snow storms dumping fresh powder, spending all day adventuring outside in the elements takes its toll and leaves many outdoor enthusiasts, skiers, and snowboarders red-faced, goggle-tanned, and chapped. Sunscreen, lip balm, and lots of moisturizer is essential to protect your skin from the winter elements.
Adhesive heat packs and hand warmers are wonderful to put in your gloves, pockets, and boots (or stick inside your layers!), and don’t forget a water bottle and thermos flask. The higher the elevation, the more water is required to stay hydrated. Speaking of self-care – don’t forget your swimwear for rejuvenating alpine spa days and hot tub soaks at home.
