  • Check your gear

There is nothing worse than getting to the mountain and realizing you forgot something or that your gear is broken. Before heading out to the mountain, check your equipment and make sure everything is ready to go. Check your edges by running your fingers down them, make sure there are no rough or damaged areas that you will find yourself hung up on while you get back into the groove. A fresh wax is always a nice way to start out the season and make sure you are ready to glide down the mountain with ease. Lastly, put on all your gear, make sure everything is in good condition- including your boots and bindings.

  • Eat a hearty breakfast

To make the best out of your first day on the mountain make sure to fill up on the most important meal of the day- breakfast. Eating a hearty meal in the morning keeps your metabolism working and maximizes your energy for a long endurance on the mountain. Keeping your warm and pumped up all day long.
