Styles for the slopes

Having the right skiing gear is essential when hitting the slopes and the best way to make sure you keep warm is to wear the right layers, in the right order. That way, you'll be able to ski all day without giving it an extra thought.

All layers should be technical and breathable. We'll explain how to layer each one here below.

Layering Guide

Base layer - is meant to wick away sweat from the skin and help the body keep its natural temperature. A base layer should be your next-to-skin layer and therefore needs to actually be next to your skin.

Mid layer - is extremely important in the whole system of layering. The mid-layer should be your most versatile piece of clothing and should be easy to take off and re-add as the temperatures and aerobic output change. Keep in mind that no matter the quality of your mid-layer, it can still render useless if it is layered over a low-quality baselayer. 

Insulation - traps more air than a traditional mid-layer and therefore provides better insulation. This can be either down- or synthetic materials like Primaloft. Having an additional insulation layer helps you avoid getting chilled when taking a break from skiing and also offers you the possibility of dealing with colder temperatures.

Shell layer - protects you from wind, rain and wet snow. These layers are highly waterproof and protect your inner layers from becoming damp. In order to prevent moisture build-up underneath the shell jacket, you must keep in mind to select a shell layer that has adequate breathing qualities.

Keep in mind

In colder climates, it can be useful to pack an extra insulation layer that can be worn during short breaks or when using the ski lift. Thin jackets/vests made with Primaloft insulation, as well as think down jackets, are perfect for such occasions since they can be easily packed in a backpack when not necessary.

In many cases, wearing a single fleece mid-layer can be enough. Our Vik collection is made with high-quality fleece material, which can be ideal for such conditions.
