Dress for a similar climate to the Alps
The helicopters are heated and you can store some equipment inside.
We recommend multi layer clothing and spare gloves and goggles. Due to high winds the wind-chill factor
is often an important consideration, and we recommend extra protection for your face and the use of a helmet.

with varied snow conditions, from powder to crust and icy slope entrances (due to steam from active volcanoes).
Your should be comfortable with varied snow conditions, have good control in difficult snow conditions and have a good level of fitness since most of the runs are between 1000 to 2000 vertical meters in length.
Your ski clothing should keep you comfortable between minus 15 degrees Celsius and plus five degrees Celsius. Footwear suitable for slushy conditions and a raincoat are useful for excursions on no-fly days. Ski boots and snowboards are not available at to hire. In addition to your ski clothes we recommend:
