I am going to Aspen for Christmas and have only ever been skiing in Europe before (I'm from the UK).
With regards to skiwear what type of thing should I be wearing? thermals, fleece and then ski jacket?
Also is it so cold that I will need a balaclava? I do feel the cold easily but have only been skiing when all I needed was a scarf. Also is it mandatory to wear a helmet as I am hiring ski equipment so would like to know whether to hire a helmet as well?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
