Cross-country Skiing Outfit: I'm seeking clothing advice so that I don't freeze when XC skiing for the first time this winter (in Norway).
This winter I'll be travelling a lot to Oslo, Norway and while there will be cross-country skiing for the first time. I'll be going with my partner (also a beginner) and maybe some seasoned Norwegians later in the season (who will be taking it easy for our benefit).
What do I have? Skis, shoes, gloves, jacket
. (And lessons booked!)
What do I not have? Trousers, underclothes for lower and upper body, a "proper" hat, sunglasses.
- As a beginner XC skier what layers should I be wearing on my legs and my torso (number of layers, materials, etc.)?
- Is this hat
(my only winter hat) OK (note that the jacket also has a hood)?
- Do I need sunglasses, and if so what type? I have an unused pair of Bolle 'sports' sunglasses I could resurrect.
Thanks for helping me survive, preferably without looking like this
(great for kids, but not so much for 18yo males).
