Like any ski socks, Lenz socks should be worn firm and close to your skin with minimal wrinkles to ensure a smooth surface within your boots. This will minimise any wrinkles cutting off circulation or causing discomfort.
When choosing gloves you need to determine each person's needs. For children, mittens are the best option. For very young children there are mittens that have a zip in them which makes it so much easier for the child to get them on and off.
Travelling to Mt Buller is a beautiful scenic 3 hours drive from Melbourne. There are many ways to travel there, by car, bus and helicopter if you choose.
We have many people asking us what is the best footwear or snow boots to wear upon the snow. Be it for your self or your children there are some very affordable options of apres snow boots. One of the biggest mistakes people make dressing for the snow is wearing the wrong footwear and socks. The wrong boots will mean your feet will get wet and cold very quickly. You need your feet to be warm and the correct snow socks and apres snow boots will help blood circulation and help maintain warmth and comfort.
Unfortunately, not every size is made equal. In the realm of snow gear and specifically plus-sized snow gear, the sizes can vary incredibly even across the same brand. You might normally be a size 22 and find yourself ordering a size 26 on our site or a Unisex 6XL. Don’t worry, size is just a number and what’s really important is finding you a plus size jacket or pant which is comfy and fits well for your upcoming adventure to a cold climate.
Ski pants can be long in length and bunched up a bit as per the picture (they should have a bit of length on them, and at least rest on your feet when wearing without shoes) or even a bit more as pictured on the model above.
The thinner your ski sock, the better. Yes, seriously. Frosty toes are the bane of snow sports and it may seem like a completely logical and a cozy idea to wear really thick explorer style socks or even more than one pair of socks to keep your toes and feet warm and dry all day. You will more than likely regret it once you’re out on the slopes.
The big question for many prescription eye wearers heading to the snow is “Are there goggles that I can wear over my glasses?”
The answer is YES! Most companies now make ski and snow goggles that you can buy to wear over your glasses. These are called OTG (over the glasses) goggles.
Layering under outerwear (jacket and pants) is the most important part of getting dressed to go skiing. The most essential layer is thermal underwear, which wicks away sweat and moisture from your skin.
Special detergents need to be used on your waterproof gear to ensure the fabric’s water-repellent coating is not washed away by strong household detergents.
