The temperature range over which you need a drysuit to scuba dive is anywhere between 14-21°C (57-70°F). The temperature at which you need a drysuit will depend on your personal tolerance to the cold.
Partly because more people ski than scuba dive, there are more skiing accidents happen over a given period. Some of these accidents are very minor and some involve broken bones. But to answer the question ‘is skiing more dangerous than scuba diving?’, it turns out that scuba diving is statistically more dangerous than skiing and snowboarding when it comes to fatalities.
What is Dry Suit Diving? Most divers know that water sucks heat out of your body 25 times faster than air of the same temperature. Which means if you’re diving in cold water you must use the correct exposure suit to be comfortable and to protect yourself from hypothermia. Depending on your personal tolerance to the cold, I suggest a drysuit is necessary anywhere below 14-21°C (70-57°F).
