Kuratau School

I must be prepared to make this a safe and fun experience.

We suggest polypropylene or merino underclothing for both upper and lower body and layers of warm clothing in fabrics such as wool and fleece.  You should also have a warm ski jacket and pants or other protective clothing which is sufficiently waterproof and windproof  to avoid hypothermia. Don’t forget ski gloves (2 pairs, as these can get very wet), neck gaiter (but NO scarves), long, warm socks (wear only one pair) and ski goggles . Each child must be responsible for his/her own gear.  It is recommended that each child carry up the mountain a small backpack with  their lunch, drinks, snacks, and anything else they may need on the mountain.  As snow sports is a strenuous activity we suggest that they eat good nutritious food and drink plenty of water.  Lots of snacks tucked into pockets is recommended.  A small flask of milo is a great idea to help warm up cold bodies.  Don’t forget sunblock and eye protection and helmets!!
