What to Bring

Equipment- Items with an asterisk 【※】 are required.

Skiing Equipment【※】 Skis, a snowboard, or telemark skis. For snowboards, we recommend bringing a collapsible pole as we do not provide rentals for these.
Outerwear【※】 Something that allows sweating- breathable fabrics with zippers are recommended.
Innerwear【※】 Non-absorbent fabrics like those used in sports tights are recommended. Materials like cotton will get wet (and cold) very easily, so please refrain from wearing these materials for innerwear.
Hat【※】 Bring something that will cover your ears. If you have a helmet, we recommend bringing that along as well.
Goggles【※】 Participants will be required to wear these when skiing. It is good idea to bring a spare pair in case one fogs up.
Gloves【※】 Make sure they are warm- thin spring gloves are not acceptable!
Something to Drink【※】 We recommend bringing something that can provide hydration as well as nutrition, such as Aquarius or Pocari Sweat
Backpack【※】 This must be something you carry on your back- shoulder bags and the like are unacceptable.
Sunglasses Good for hiking up in bright, sunny weather.
Camera We recommend one that is water resistant.
Helmet If you have one, bring it!
Snow shoes Not necessary for the hike up, but definitely useful.
Beacon We rent these out to participants who do not have one of their own, but ask that those who do have them to bring them.
