Are you wondering what to pack for your ski trip?
If you’re planning a skiing holiday it can be a little overwhelming deciding what to take with you. I’ll admit the first time I ridiculously overpacked, but as the seasons have passed I’m pretty confident on what to take with me. Ski trips are mostly relaxed where clothes are concerned, so apart from the ski essentials for the daytime which I’ll list below, you really don’t need much in the evening apart from comfy clothes. Hopefully this guide will help you if you’re looking to go on a ski trip.
Packing the Essentials
- Ski Jacket
- Salopettes/Ski Trousers
- Thermal Base Layers
- Mid Layers/Fleece Jumper
- Ski Socks
- Ski Gloves/Mittens
- Warm Hat
- Ski Helmet
- Ski Goggles
- Waterproof Snow Boots
- Neck Warmer/Snood (or colder days)
- Sun Cream
- Backpack (if you’re needing to carry gopro, snacks or any other equipment with you.)
Apart from the usual items you would take on holiday (pj’s, beauty essentials etc) I always find it a good idea to pack an extra jacket and maybe a spare pair of gloves encase you want to venture out after skiing and your ski coat is damp/drying.
We prefer to hire our skis, poles and boots in resort as purchasing these can be quite expensive. Most places have excellent equipment available for hire and it’s a lot easier to travel when you are not lugging heavy or oversized equipment with you.
I hope this list helped you, if you have any questions please let me know and I’ll try my best to help or point you in the right direction. I’m also putting together a guide on what to pack for children so keep an eye out for that!
