If you make a list and pack smart, you won’t find yourself without some important piece of your winter sports equipment when you reach your destination.
To help ensure that you don’t forget any key items or accessories, organize your packing into categories:
-Ski equipment: Pack your skis and poles in a specialized ski bag if you are flying. If you’re driving, a car rack, such as a Thule roof rack, will keep your skis secure.
-Ski clothes: Don’t forget to think layers, including moisture-wicking base layers, a mid-layer turtleneck top, lightweight fleece or sweater, and your ski jacket and ski pants. Allow for 1-2 base and mid-layer changes for every two days of your ski trip.
-Apres ski clothes: Pack an appropriate pair of apres ski boots and some comfortable, stylish clothes, which vary depending on what type of apres ski scene you seek.
-Accessories: This category of ski equipment includes your goggles, gloves, neck gaiter or scarf, and other items such as sunscreen, chap stick, and pocket hand warmers.
