We're all winter buffs, but when the temperature rises a few degrees and we can take off a few layers of wetsuits: we're happy.
THE KEY IS TO BE PREPARED.
Spring snow is really the best time of the year, but to keep it enjoyable you have to plan a little in advance. That's why we've prepared a very simple guide for you that includes absolutely everything you need to know to be able to enjoy your local mountain for as long as possible!
WAX, WAX BABY.
Snow is rarely the same temperature. It can vary with the level of humidity, the air temperature and many other factors (nothing for the scientific minute number 1!).
It is therefore important that you select the right wax for the right temperature. That way, you will increase your performance (the speedsssssssss) and you won't stick to the slope. We know it; It's happened to all of us, okay.
THE IDEAL TEMPERATURE DOES NOT EXIST
We see you coming a little: does it matter if I use a wax outside of its ideal “temperature range”?
No. A wax a little outside of its ideal temperature always works better than no wax at all. In addition, it is possible to combine two waxes for two precise temperatures to anticipate changing or uncertain temperatures. If in doubt, always use a wax for colder temperatures, it works better on warm snow than vice versa.
WHAT TO PUT?
Le snow spring, we're all looking forward to that. The warming temperature, the wet snow, the longer days, the wet snow, the après-ski on the terrace, the wet snow... We know that you are a little fast and that you have understood that in the spring , your equipment must is IMPERMEABLE.
GORE-TEX IS THE ANSWER TO ALL YOUR QUESTIONS
So we're talking to you AGAIN about Gore-Tex. (We're just trying to figure out why you don't have that in your life yet...)
The good thing about this technology is that it will keep you dry and let the moisture out. This way, you make sure you can play outside all day and get to après-ski without any problems!
HOW TO PROTECT YOUR EYES?
In the spring, you can afford to leave your googles next to !
THE UV INDEX NEEDS TO BECOME YOUR BEST FRIEND.
The most important thing when you choose your sunglasses is the percentage of protection against UV rays Because snow reflects UV rays much more than water (85% for snow and 5 to 10% for You're welcome for science minute number 2!).
We understand that you are probably not the pro of UV rays Do not hesitate to ask questions to our staff when you go to the store. Our advisers will be more than happy to help you protect your eyes.
Now that you are all set on the protection side, all you have to do is to choose the one that will make you the most beautiful skiing tan.
VANS, SPY, ELECTRIC, or DRAGON at this stage, the choice is not lacking.
