Thermals 'can make skiers more comfortable'
Bookmark and Share
Thermal clothing is something that could help make those who go skiing more comfortable in the cold weather.

Information and advice manager at the organisation Al Morgan said: "If you feel the cold then make sure you take some warm layers," adding that taking backpacks with warm food and drink in can also help people to stay warm.

Being comfortable on the slopes is an obvious requirement for comfort, in addition to the need to be properly equipped.

Mr Morgan stated that the key pieces of kit include thermal base layers, a ski jacket and pants, plus gloves.

He also said skiers need "a warm hat, sunglasses, or if you wish to get something more ski focused, then look at goggles".

Having invested in the right gear, many people will be keen to make the most of the Christmas holidays and while one option may be to fly to the Alps or another continental destination, all of Scotland's resorts are offering the chance to hit the slopes.

In its latest conditions report today (December 24th), the Nevis Range revealed it is open, albeit with skiing confined to its lower slopes after days of high winds, which have caused damage to the Snowgoose building and some ski tows. Elsewhere in the west Highlands, Glencoe is open but has no area for complete beginners

Across in the Cairngorms National Park, Glenshee has seen some snow lost through higher temperatures, but the Claybokie and the Cairnwell runs are complete, along with the Dik Dink beginners' run. Cairngorm Mountain will be mostly open provided the wind level does not increase and almost all runs at the Lecht are open, with frost having firmed up the ground.

In England, the recent thaw has reduced snow to the point where some slopes may not be able to offer any skiing until the new year, with the Lake District Ski Club on Raise stating this is the current situation there. The situation is similar at Yad Moss near Alston.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801512188-ADNFCR
