The following is a list of the gear, equipment, and clothing you will need for your day on the ski slopes. If it's your first ski trip, rent skis and boots. There is no point in investing in expensive equipment until you are sure this is the sport for you.

Do make sure that you have appropriate clothes, that will keep you both warm and dry.
