 Appropriate Dress for Skiing:

Hat that will cover head and ears, tight fitting vest or sweater to keep body heat in, waterproof jacket, gloves or mittens that are specifically designed for skiing with reinforced palms and plenty of room for your fingers to move.  Roomy, high-waisted ski bibs are preferable as outerwear as they are the best way to keep legs warm and especially good for beginners who will be in the snow a lot.  One pair of socks (medium weight, preferably the non-ribbed type) are adequate for modern ski boots.

Items you might have in your closet that will work: turtleneck shirt with tight neck and sleeves, tight-knit sweaters and/or flannel shirt, flannel pajamas, nylon wind jacket or wind suit, gloves with waterproofing applied.
