It’s time to start preparing for ski season!
Don’t miss out this year. Last year’s issues don’t have to hold you back this winter, and you owe it to yourself to experience some wintry and wonderous skiing near Lexington. Whether you didn’t have the right car or the proper gear, now is the time to change all of that. Paoli Peaks is only a few hours away from Lexington and they’re selling passes now. In the meantime, get prepared with this mountain fun checklist.
The Right Vehicle
The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder SUV is a comfortable way to get to and from the ski resort. It’s the perfect SUV for long trips, lugging gear and coping with gravel, snow and ice. The full-size Pathfinder is able to easily traverse the winter Kentucky roads while feeling and driving like a luxury car. As an added bonus, 2015 Nissan Pathfinder accessories for skiing (like roof racks and tire chains) will make your trip much easier. To help enhance grip when accelerating, the Traction Control System senses wheelspin and automatically reduces engine output and/or brakes the spinning wheel to help give you a surer foothold.
Be Kind to Your Rear
Whether you ski or board, you’ve got to have the right equipment. It’s a pretty expensive, so if you don’t see yourself going at least every few weeks then you might as well just rent. I grew up skiing. Both are equally fun and cool when you’re doing them, although the snowboard culture makes it seem cooler than skiing. It’s easier to learn how to ski, you just form a pie piece with your skis and slowly make your way down the hill. Keep in mind that shorter skis are going to be more difficult to use at first and are made for tricks. Long skis are for racing. No matter what you choose, you’ll have fun.
Remember, you can always layer down. If you don’t bring enough clothes though, you’ll be cold and that my friends is snow fun. You can never have too many socks, they get wet and wet feet get cold easier.
Make sure you bring long johns and some sort of long sleeves underneath everything. Bring a sweater to wear underneath your coat. Pants, coats and gloves need to be waterproof. Also include some Hot Hands in your pockets, they really come in handy as you’re riding the lift back up the hill. Keep your ears warm with a beanie and don’t be afraid to show a little flair.
A successful ski trip should end with everyone within the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder interior, sitting on the front and rear heated seats and enjoying cups of hot cocoa. And with the super cool and tech-friendly Pathfinder standard features while enjoying the soothing clarity of the Bose sound system.
