TIPS FOR YOUR FIRST DAY ON THE SLOPES
Here’s some tips for your first day on the slopes.
All GETSkiing packages at Jiminy Peak are sold at the GET desk in the Doc Maynard building. Beginner classes go out at 9am 11am and 1:30pm
Dress COMFORTABLY and in layers
If you can, leave the jeans at home and borrow snow pants from a friend. A ski-type jacket is also a great idea. Here’s a list of other good things to wear or bring with you:
A HAT is very important
Goggles or Sunglasses
Only one pair of socks
A turtleneck and/or neck gaiter – scarves can become loose and get in the way
Water-resistant or water proof mittens or gloves
Sweater or Polar Fleece pullover
Take a Lesson! Don’t Let Your Friend Teach You to Ski
You wouldn’t let an amateur perform a root canal on you, so why let a friend try to teach you to ski? That’s what professional ski instructors are for. Think of ski classes as shortcuts to proficiency and fun.
