FAQ

What should I wear?

Winters in New Hampshire often provides us with variable weather conditions, sometimes within the same day, or even within several hours. Proper outdoor winter attire is recommended.

It is best to dress in layers, allowing you to add or remove clothing as conditions and temperature change. 

Clothing checklist:

  • A moisture wicking base layer made of synthetic material.  Stay away from cotton as it holds moisture that will eventually make your child feel cold. 
  • A lightweight wool sweater, fleece, or turtleneck.
  • A single pair of medium weight wool or synthetic socks.
  • An outer layer consisting of a warm waterproof or water repellent winter jacket, and ski or snowboard pants.
  • Waterproof gloves or mittens.  Fleece is not recommended. 
  • A face covering, googles or sunglasses.   
  • We always recommend wearing a helmet, but if choosing not to wear one, a winter hat will help keep warm.
  • Sport Thoma Retail located in the base area offers all the accessories and necessities you may need to keep you comfortable on the slopes.

What should my children wear?

Dress your children for the outdoors, following the same guidelines outlined above.

What time should I get here?

If you are taking a skiing or snowboarding lesson, you should plan on meeting your instructor no earlier than 10 minutes prior to the start of your lesson - this is for all children and adult lessons.  If you or your child is renting equipment, please plan on arriving at least 45 minutes prior to the start of the lesson, to allow ample time to pick up equipment.
