Dressing in Layers for Outdoor Comfort

Spending time outdoors is a big part of the lifestyle of many Vermonters, and dressing to stay comfortable during changing weather and activity levels is important if you want to get out there and have fun doing it.

Luckily, there are many trusted and well established gear brands that offer everything you need to be comfortable doing whatever you like to do outside.

Deciding what outdoor clothing you need and how to use it can be as complex as you want to make it, but if you start by learning to dress in layers, then you are well on your way to outdoor comfort.

The following tips on layering will help you make the most of what you already own and make better decisions about the new gear that will make your adventures even more fun.

When a new customer comes in for a downhill ski boot, we assess the foot as well as the skier and take a multi-point measurement of their foot. We then select 1 or 2 pairs of boots that should fit their feet pretty well and after the skier tries them on, we will determine what exact pair they should be skiing in that year.

"You don't need to try on 15, 16, 20 different pairs of ski boots to find the perfect fit - you just need to find someone to assess your foot, assess you as a skier, and knows the current boots who can put those pieces together very easily." Doug Stewart, Skirack Downhill Ski Boot Fitter.
