What to Pack for a Ski Trip

I recently put together a ski trip to Mount Snow in Vermont for my honey and I and a big group of friends. My honey and I love to ski and snowboard and have been doing it for years! There were quite a few people in our group who were excited to try skiing, but haven’t been on a ski trip before. I wanted to help them out, so I made them a packing list. I figured this list would be helpful to other people as well, so I’m sharing it here.

Print out the image below and check off the items as you pack!

A few of the items on this list are specific to renting a ski house. For example, you wouldn’t need to bring sheets and pillows to a hotel. But you would maybe want to bring a warm blanket to cuddle with since a lot of ski lodges have fire places in the lobby. I would recommend bringing your own beach towel for using when you hop out of the hot tub, whereas bath towels might now be necessary. Don’t forget your bathing suit!

Me attempting to learn to ski in Utah last year- I am a terrible skier, much better at snowboarding!

Ski clothing is specific to the sport, and is always waterproof! It is made especially for outdoor sports and will keep you warm and dry while cutting down on bulk. While you may be tempted to pick up a cheap coat or pair of pants because they’re cute, just don’t. If you must, make sure they’re waterproof, and bring lots of extra layers. The same goes for gloves, and snow boots! You don’t want to skimp on quality when it comes to your fingers and toes! I am a former glove wearer and I recently switched over to mittens, and I recommend them for sure. I included a link to my new pair below. I also linked up the new boots I picked up this year, and the most amazing wool socks EVER!

Lastly,  here is a photo of our ski trip group at our ski house!

Do you have any ski trips planned for this winter? I hope this list helps you to pack!
