Going on a ski trip is a rather exciting thing to do for vacation and it demands some very specific packing. Where lip balm is not very important on some vacations, it can be a life saver when you are out on the slopes. These types of specific items are often overlooked and then you have to pay a fortune at the lodge to get them. Here is a basic packing list of the primary things you will need on your ski trip:
● Glasses (Sunglasses and Regular)
● Contact Lenses
● Warm Clothing
● Boots for Snow
● Heavy Coat
● Waterproof gear
● Ski Equipment
● Cell Phone/Tablet/Chargers
● First Aid Kit
● Lip Balm
● ID/travel paperwork
Here are some packing tips to help you be sure to cover all your bases effectively:
Pack Layers of Clothes
The last thing you want to do on a ski trip is be cold. Layers are the key to warmth in the snow and you start with a good pair of thermals. Add in some turtlenecks, jackets, sweaters and some good ski pants and waterproof gear and you will be set. Make sure your ski coat is of top quality for optimal warmth.
The last thing you want is to be buying hand and foot warmers at the cabin store. Pack plenty of toiletries that you will need and that includes lip balm and first aid kits. You never want to be caught without these types of things up on a mountain. If you do have to buy them, you will pay a premium that your wallet will certainly feel.
Rent or Buy?
Decide ahead of time if you are going to buy your gear or rent it. If you do decide to rent it there are certain things you should still buy for yourself. One thing is a quality pair of goggles. These are so vital to your comfort and safety that having your own is really important. Likewise, a solid pair of ski boots that fit are vital too. Like the old rental skates at the roller skating rinks, finding a good rental pair that fits is a challenge. Pick out a good pair and pay the price…your feet will thank you later.
Remember the Time Away From The Slopes
Not every moment will be spent on the slopes. Perhaps you will go to a nice, formal dinner and need a tux. Maybe you will take in a movie or spend some time walking around a nearby town. Whatever the case, you need to pack for some of these possibilities and be prepared. You rarely spend the entire vacation doing nothing but skiing.
