    According to Shannon Bahrke, a three-time U.S. Olympian and two-time Olympic freestyle medalist ,

     

    Don’t dress cool, pile on the layers:

    Start with a tight base layer top and bottom in merino wool or polyester, which will hold in warmth and wick away moisture. A regular cotton T-shirt is a no-no. "Cotton doesn't wick, isn't warm, and will stay wet forever," Over your base top, wear a looser layer-a sweater, a turtleneck, shirt, or vest-that allows air to flow in and out. Consider a zippered garment, which will keep you from sweating too much.
    If you don't have an insulated jacket, wear another thin layer under it—if you're too warm you can always take it off. Heed the cotton caution for pants, as well. That means saving your jeans for après-ski and wearing shells (nylon waterproof pants) or—even better—investing in ski pants, which offer padding and insulation to keep you dry, warm, and bruise-free.

     

    Don’t forget to hydrate :

    Don’t run low on fluids


    Stretch it Out Before You Hit the Slopes
    Don't Start out stiff
    Between getting suited up and waiting for the chairlift, it can be easy to forget that skiing is a workout—and you should prep your body the same way your would for a run or HIIT class. The more flexible you are, the more you'll boost your performance and decrease your risk of injury.

     

    To Learn How to Ski, Take a Lesson
     Do: Learn from an expert
    Taking a lesson from a certified ski instructor ensures you'll start off with good skiing form—planting your poles funny and turning too sharp are bad habits that can be difficult to break later on.

     

    Slather on Sunscreen
    Don't Assume you're covered in the cold
    The sun is still strong enough all winter to cause burning and skin aging, especially at high altitudes. In fact, the reflection of UV rays off snow can nearly double their strength.
