Team- and Fanwear
LNST will hold sales on Teamwear and Fanwear annually.  If LNST-wear is available, a link will be available in the upper left 'Helpful Links' on Homepage. Teamwear generally consists of LNST warm-up jackets and pants and LNST hats & headbands that are worn at practices and to races.  Fanwear generally consists clothing for the whole family on and off the trail, including LNST cotton sweatshirts, cotton and technical t-shirts, and jogger pants.

Skiers are responsible to dress appropriately for practices and races.  If a skier is new to the sport, it may be surprising how physical and sweaty the practices and races can be!  Yet, safety is a concern on cold days. Thus, striking the right balance of wicking versus insulation layers is important for ski performance and outdoor safety! Talk with the Coaches if you have questions. For nordic-specific clothing and gear, see the Ski Shop & Discounts link under left 'Helpful Links' on Homepage.

Check List:
Top & bottom base layers, light jacket & pants, hats, headbands, gloves, mittens, warm socks, and neck gaiters/buffs.

Pro Tips:

•Avoid cotton as it does not breathe.  
•Do not wear snowmobile jackets or pants, because they are generally designed with too much insulation and little wicking capacity.
•Dress in layers. Generally, layer with less and thinner layers on warm days and more and thicker layers on cold days. Remember you can always take off a layer, but, if you do not have it with you, you cannot add a layer. 

•Wear a base layer that wicks moisture and an outer layer wicks moisture and provides some insulation. 
•For practices, many skiers wear their team jacket with a light layer underneath. 
•For races, skiers often wear a base layer under their uniform and, for warmups, an outer wind/light pants and a light jacket.

•Bring dry, mid-weight socks to put on before practice or race.

•Wind briefs are recommended for boys, especially when racing and on cold days.

•Wear gloves/or mittens that breathe but wick moisture. Lobster gloves are a good balance of grip and warmth. It's worth having options: a thinner pair of gloves for warm days and thicker lobster gloves or mittens for cold days.
•Wear a hat or headband. Again, both options is ideal to dress for warm or cold days.
•Wear a neck gaiter or "buff".  These are compact and can be put in a pocket or wrapped around a wrist if not needed.  Or, can work as a headband or thin hat. Or, work as a face cover on very cold days.  Multi-use and very functional!
•Protect exposed face skin with a neck gaiter, face tape, or vasoline on cold days.

•For dryland training, dress in layers for the weather; be sure to have supportive shoes or hiking boots for trail running and bounding.
