La technique des 3 couches au ski

How to dress properly for a day on the slopes ?

The Slide 500 Warm jacket is waterproof and water resistant, and with its thickness, it will keep you warm. You must combine two technical layers to regulate your temperature during effort on the slopes.

 

During effort, the technical layers are intuitive:

  • A first layer, named "Second skin" provides warmth and comfort whilst wicking away perspiration during effort.
  • A second layer provides insulation, trapping warm air around the body and creates a thermal barrier protecting you from the cold.

 

Finally the Reverse, a "protector", protecting from bad weather and serves as a windbreaker.

In addition to the 3 layers keeping the upper body warm, it is important to keep the extremities warm; feet, hands and the head are the most exposed parts of the body.

 

Tip :

To keep your hands and feet nice and warm, it's important to keep your head covered (40% of body heat lost! Odd, don't you think? When the conditions are extremely cold, the body will divert more blood to the heart and brain rather than the extremities. So keeping your head warm will ensure that more blood gets to your fingers and toes! To do this, it is best to wear a helmet which ensures warmth and safety.

 

You now know everything to stay warm when skiing, enjoy your days on the slopes !
