Layering is all bout versatility. It allows you to adapt to the changing weather conditions on the mountain and regulate your temperature during periods of high and low activity. Any good layering system starts against your skin and a wicking base layer will draw moisture away from your body and dry quickly to prevent you from becoming cold.  Intelligent layering doesn’t have to stay on the mountain, a base layer is the ideal companion to keep you feeling warm and comfortable throughout the winter.


There are a lot of base layers out there and it’s difficult to know what’s right for you, so here are 10 of our favourites for this season to help you get started…
