FOR HIKING
  • Lightweight or mediumweight boots: better for the upper to be covering your ankle to avoid a twist in the achylles tendon.
  • Everything cotton except for socks: jeans might be an idea as long as you feel comfortable with it.
  • Walking poles: especially for downhill so your knees won't have to carry all your load.
  • Wool socks: better in long roots.
  • Food: ranging from an apple to dates, dry fruits and almonds… no need for food rich in proteins; you get those when you arrive home, but for now you need to recharge fast to get going.
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen: especially for white skins, to avoid burns.
  • Jacket: in some areas it can get really cold.
FOR SNOWSHOEING
  • Waterproof boots: with goretex or event layer and a vibram sole; if not provided, get with you nylon bags to cover your boots, but do get boots high above the ankle.
  • Wool socks to avoid slippage and bad blisters… try getting either smart wool or merino wool.
  • Poles: if you have... if not, we will support you with.
  • Something to cover your face ears and neck: you need to keep your head warm because it is responsible for exerting one third of your energy!
  • Gloves: very important so you avoid freezing or frostbite attack.
  • Spare inner clothes such as wool shirts and sweatshirts to avoid being wet for a long period of time, in case it happens.
  • Gaiters: to block rubble and snow into your boots.
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen: especially for white skins, to avoid burns.
  • Food: ranging from an apple to dates, dry fruits and almonds... no need for food rich in proteins; you get those when you arrive home, but for now you need to recharge fast to get going.
