Required Equipment

Required Equipment

Downhill skis, ski boots, poles.   Please bring your own or rent equipment in town - the Snow Sports Director ( can help answer your questions.  The Mountaineers does not provide you with equipment, and we do not have equipment to rent at the Lodge.  

Helmets are strongly recommended.

Handwear: The rope tow wears out gloves and mitts quickly, so we recommend wearing leather work gloves over glove liners.  Welding gloves also work well.  Meany also has several styles of leather over-mitt protectors available for sale.   Most people stay plenty warm while skiing.  We recommend bringing a separate pair of warm mitts to wear while you are not skiing.
