When you’re skiingyou can sometimes forget to take in fluids. We don't mean alcohol, but water and soft drinks. If you prefer somewhere out of the way, you might have to walk for miles to find the nearest shop or cafe. So what should you do? And what should you pack when you take your board out?
- Drink pouch
Fill it up in the morning and take it with you in your backpack. You can always take a break from skiing to take a drink and enjoy the vista.
- Heated ski clothing
If there’s not a restaurant or bar in the vicinity where you can warm up, heated clothing could be the answer. Your gloves and jacket stay warm for up to eight hours. At the end of the day you can recharge the batteries and use them the next day – in other 30seven clothing if you wish.
- Action Cam
Show everyone what they are missing. With an action cam you can film your descent and upload the results in the evening to your preferred site.
You can show off your exploits in the remotest areas to your friends and family.
Download apps on your smartphone to plan a route, measure altitude and work out what time you’ll arrive back. Or listen to some tunes while you’re on your board.
If you're going out on a longer route, a multi-tool is not exactly a luxury. You’ll be able to quickly tighten up loose connections before they become a problem. Some multi-tools also come with a knife or a bottle opener. Found an idyllic spot looking out over the valley? Picnic time. The multi-tool is everything you need.
