Team Panorama offers logo ski jackets, racing pants, racing shorts, and other clothing for purchase. Items can be ordered through the Team Panorama each spring.  Contact our Registrar (contact@teampanorama.ca) for more information.  These items are not a requirement.

U12 skiers and above require speed suits.  Speed suits are optional at the U10 level and are not required at the U8 level. Speed suits can be purchased through most local ski stores.

It is recommended that athletes who wear speed suits have racing ski pants (with zippers down the side). These can be purchased through the Final Gate in Panorama or any ski shop.

Helmets with hard ears are required at all age groups for races.
