Whether it’s your first time skiing or you’ve been doing it for years, here’s the ultimate ski trip packing list/checklist so you won’t leave anything behind. Just check the box! Or if you need a guide on what exactly to buy, see our What to Pack for a Ski Trip.
Ski and Snowboard Gear
Insider tip: Rent these if it’s your first time skiing. Ski gear is expensive and only worth investing if you’re ready to commit. Trust me.
Insider tip: Rent or borrow ski jackets or pants if it’s you’re first time skiing.
Insider tip: Extremely cold/blizzard days call for fleece jackets or if you’re a cruisey skier or rider who likes making multiple stops for photos, packing a fleece jacket is a good idea too.
Protective Gear for beginner snowboarders
Insider tip: Rent wrist guards if it’s you’re first time snowboarding.
Insider tip: If you're not taking a small backpack, fit all smaller items such as lip balm, pocket tissues and pocket sized sunscreen in your ski jacket.
Insider tip: Pack your socks and goggles in your ski boots to save space.
