What to pack for a day trip in winter?

Who is the best Skinbased skier? Well, the one having the most fun, of course! And there is no better way to maximize the fun-to-effort ratio than by heading out to your favorite frozen spot for a day of sliding on your Skinbased skis.

Day trips sit at the core of Skinbased adventures and were the original motivation behind creating the first Skinbased ski. We all know how busy life can be, and getting out for a day, or even a few hours, into the peacefulness of nature can do wonders for mind, body and soul. 
So, what do you need for a wintery day spent outdoors? A lot depends on the duration of your day trip, and how far away from civilization you will get, but the list below can serve as a decent starting point. 
The Skiing Essentials: 
If you a planning only for a quick slide around the local park, and won’t get too far away from the car park, then all you need is what’s below!  

  • Your favorite Skinbased Ski set up with EA Universal Bindings: If you aren't sure which Skinbased ski is the ideal one for your planned outing, see our other blog post about it, here! 
  • Ski poles: We prefer a nice telescoping version like the Black Diamond Traverse Pro 
  • Footwear: A nice, supportive boot with a flexible sole and waterproof or insulated liner can help keep your feet warm, dry and protected on those frosty days.
