What clothing should I take to wear?

On the UK real snow slopes the temperature has to be very low. You should bring your regular ski gear:

Warm ski jacket
Warm waterproof ski pants
Fleece, or breathable sweater
Ski socks
Warm waterproof gloves
Ski boots
However it will not snow or get windy, and there will be no UV light, therefore goggles and sunglasses are not required.

What equipment should I bring?

Equipment hire with the Warren Smith Ski Academy is included in the price for all UK courses. However you are more than welcome to bring your own. There is no reduction on the price for doing so.

Can I hire equipment at UK venues?

There is a vast selection of equipment for hire at all UK Venues. However, we would strongly recommend that you take your own boots if you have some.
