The following list should provide a good starting point when deciding what should be taken on a skiing holiday.
Skiing & Snowboarding Checklist
Skis, Poles & Boots
These can be hired out in the resort (especially useful if you're a beginner or intermediate skier). Also saves you having to travel with them!
Good Quality Ski Jacket.
Salopettes or Ski Pants
Selection of Fleeces - Ideal for layering
Base Layers (2-3 tops & bottoms for a week long trip)
Skiing Socks ( A new pair advisable for each day!)
A Warm Hat
Ski Gloves or Mittens (Ideally with a warm lining & elasticated wrists)
Waterproof Walking Boots with a Good Grip
Small Backpack for the Slopes
Water - make sure you keep hydrated!
Snacks - small chocolate bars & bananas are a great way to keep your energy levels topped up
Glasses for the sun & goggles for blizzards
Mobile phone or walkie talkies
Ski maps - make sure you have an up to date map with emergency numbers highlighted, as well as the restaurants of course! Spare Clothing - should the temperature drop
Spare Gloves/Goggles - helpful if someone in the group mislays theirs, but not an essential
Sun screen & After Sun - up in the mountains you are more exposed to the sun's rays - even if it's cold you should slap on the sun cream!
Après-ski Gear for nights out (outside warmth with the ability to shed layers when you are inside)
Large Travel Bag, Suitcase or Backpack (ski equipment tends to be on the bulky side!)
