Preparing for the Season

To get the most out of your SNSC programs, you will want to be prepared with the right clothing and gear. Here are a few tips to help you get ready.


During the course of the 10-week season, expect to encounter all types of weather, with various combinations of sun, cold, wind, rain, and snow. Dressing in layers is a great way to keep warm and dry, and removing layers is an option if the weather is warmer than expected. Remember to protect your eyes with sunglasses. Please ensure that you are dressed and ready to go for your program at 10 am. (Remember to eat a good breakfast that includes hydrating beverages.)
