This is the first time I want to know about the sport of skiing, but I heard that skiing has relatively high requirements for clothing, which can bring safety and comfort to skiers. I would like to know what clothing requirements for skiing, and hope to get answers.

Why is it said that skiing requires better skiing equipment? Skiing is a high-intensity exercise in a humid and cold environment, so professional sports equipment is necessary. When skiing, clothing should meet several requirements, including:
- Breathability: High-intensity exercise will cause you to sweat a lot, and the sweat needs to be discharged in time to evaporate, otherwise it will cause sweat to accumulate and soak the inner layer of clothes.
- Water resistance: Skiing is carried out on snowy mountains. Snow often falls on snowy mountains or snow splashes on the outer layer when you are skiing. Therefore, the clothing needs to be waterproof to protect the inner layer from being soaked by external water.
- Warmth: It is very cold on the cable car, and warm clothes can bring us warmth. Using the three-layer dressing method requires wearing a warm woolen sweater in the middle.
- Flexibility: Skiing requires frequent and large-scale movements, so the clothes need to have good ductility to ensure the comfort and flexibility of the skier.
In addition, there are ski goggles, ski gloves and other equipment.
