Dressing for the Weather
Mount Pakenham offers you a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. The secret to winter fun is dressing properly for the weather. You’ll want to be warm, dry and comfortable on the snow.
Check out our First Timers Guide to best prepare yourself (or your child), for a day on the slopes.
Helmets are recommended for skiing and snowboarding and are included in your rental price. It is important to wear a properly fitted, ski/snowboard specific helmet. Helmets should fit snugly and not obstruct vision. Helmets can be worn with or without a light head covering underneath such as a balaclava. A properly fitted helmet can help reduce the possibility of a concussion in the event of a fall.
For information on concussion awareness, please see the Government of Ontario’s page on Concussion Safety
