My girlfriend and I have both taken up jobs and moved to Norway and now that winter has arrived and the snow has started to fall we are looking at taking some ski trips with our Norwegian friends. Neither of us has ever been skiing as we both grew up in the southern US so we dont have any equipment or knowledge of it. The primary form of skiing is cross country but on a few occasions we are going to some downhill places, but I imagine that the clolthing could not be that much different. We are looking for kind of a basic listing of what, in the way of clothing and equipment, that we might need. I think for now that we are going to rent skis, boots and things like that but its the clothing that we really need help with. The weather over here is pretty cold, -20s C where we are going downhilling, so that might come into play also. Again we just need a list of what we need and we are starting out with nothing except for some North Face jackets that I think will be fine. Also any brands or stores that have good deals would help. Everything over here costs about 3 times as much as in the states so we can get someone to ship it to us. Thanks for your help.
