Choose breathable materials like merino wool or polyester—and stay away from cotton!
Insulating mid layers are generally fleece or thicker merino wool. Being denser and slightly looser than the base layer, they lock in warmth but still let your skin breathe.
Outer shells are jackets, pants or one-piece suits typically made of a technical textile with a windproof membrane. They may also feature snow-friendly details like sealed seams and water-resistant zippers.
The adventure ends when your feet get cold and wet, so keep them warm and dry!
Helmets not only help keep your head warm, they are the safest way to ride. You should also protect your eyes against any snow and ice that can kick up. Ski-Doo has a range of head protection specially designed for backcountry snowmobiling.
Your hands are totally exposed on the handlebars. No matter how long you stay out there, they need extra warmth and protection
If you are unsure about what to wear snowmobiling in the mountains or have more questions like if you can wear snowboard boots when snowmobiling, your Ski-Doo dealer can help you select the right gear for your type of riding and location.
