  • Snow pants or waterproof pants and a warm jacket with gloves or mitts are recommended.
  • Good quality figure or hockey skates are highly recommended. Consider purchasing your skates at a specialty figure skating or hockey store to get expert fitting advice and skate recommendations. Less expensive skates do not provide proper ankle support.
