    Watch The Sun

    In the Alps you can be exposed to strong direct sun and reflection from the snow, so you need to wear lots of sunscreen and protect your eyes from glare by always wearing sunglasses or goggles.

    Try before you buy

    If you’re new to the snow its best to rent your equipment before you buy. That way you can graduate to more advanced equipment as your skiing/boarding improves at an affordable rate. There are plenty of rental shops on the mountain so you can conveniently swap sizes and styles during your stay at Mt Baw Baw.
