How to layer

For backcountry skiing the best way to keep warm is to use many layers of clothing. The idea of this is that the air between the layers keeps you warm and dry. The humidity is supposed to move through the layers away from the skin. This is how the body temperature stays even during the ski tour. You can adjust your temperature if you can remove or add layers yourself easily.

1. Closest to skin -layer

The layer closest to skin moves the humidity away from the skin and keeps it dry and warm.

2. Mid-layer

The mid-layer is supposed to help with warmth adjusting, when it is colder the mid-layer should be warmer.

3. Top-layer

The top-layer protects against wind and snowfall.

4. Extra-layer

You will need an extra layer to put on for breaks and lunch.
