When it’s time to hit the slopes, you need to make sure you’ve brought all your essentials with you. Otherwise, it will be a big disaster.
The cold is harsh and you do not want to be unprepared when facing it.
Here are the top 5 items you need:
You don’t want frostbite? Same.
I’m sure there’s a slim chance you’ll forget to bring your jacket on a ski trip, but I still put it on the list just in case.
Aside from your jacket, you must be covered in multiple layers during your trip.
You will be needing a base layer to act as your second skin that is breathable but also does its job in regulating your temperature and keeping moisture away from your skin. Synthetic fabrics and merino wools are great options.
A middle layer is also necessary as additional protection just to make sure you’re kept warm. Fleece is usually the classic choice for this.
3. Ski Gear
If you’re a beginner, rest this one. But, if you ski frequently, you must already have your gear. Gears consist of a helmet, goggles, ski, ski poles, and ski boots.
4. Ski Accessories
These are additional things like ski holder straps to keep your skis together, warmers for your hands and boots, and wrist guards.
5. First Aid Kit
We always have to be prepared in case of emergencies. Packing a first aid kit can be a life-saver at the most critical moments.
Skiing is an extreme sport. You have to be mindful about what you have to bring. Check and recheck your luggage always to make sure nothing important gets left behind.
