Hi everyone!! I can’t believe it’s almost mid December! This year definitely flew by. Not only are we in holiday season as we approach Christmas and New Year’s but we’re also in ski season!! I’m sure many of you can’t wait to get together with friends or family and hit the slopes. Whether it’s your first time or you’re basically a pro, I figured I’d share what’s on my list of things to pack to stay warm and toasty both during and après ski! Today I’m sharing the What to Pack for a Ski Trip.
In case you missed it, I shared 3 gift guides you’ll want to check out for the holidays!
For the Slopes
I rounded up some of my top picks to shop and pack for the great outdoors! When you’re packing, a few things to keep in mind are one, layers are good! If you work up a sweat, it’s nice to be able to take off your gloves, headband, or jacket for a few minutes to cool back down. And two, a stylish outfit is worth it- you’ll want to use the beautiful scenery and your cute fit as a photo op!
Turtleneck Sweater – a turtle neck is my go-to under a ski jacket. It’s cozy, cute, and keeps your neck warm!
All-weather Gloves – how cute are these quilted gloves?! They have a shearling trim and are also touchscreen compatible.
Gaiter (Tube Scarf) – a gaiter is so important to cover your nose and mouth with! The winds can be super strong skiing down the hills and you’ll thank yourself later! This ribbed tube scarf is from H&M!
Ski Helmet – if you don’t want to rent a helmet, the best idea is to bring your very own! I found a super cute matte pink one from Amazon (also comes in a bunch of other colors) with a durable shell, protective foam, cooling vents and is perfectly adjustable.
Small Cardholder – you won’t want to worry about your valuables and you wouldn’t bring your purse out with you, so a thin wallet like this nude Gucci cardholder is the best way to bring your credit cards, some cash and ID!
Here are my top picks to shop and pack for your après ski activities! For these items, I kept in mind that you want to feel your coziest but still look cute because who are we kidding…this is also a great time for a photo op on the slopside while you toast a great day out!!
SPANX Leggings – faux leather is trending! These are one of my favorite pairs of leggings and it adds the perfect touch to this look.
Sorel Boots – I love these boots because they’re warm but also look great with almost any casual outfit!
Barefoot Dreams Socks – these are probably the coziest socks of all time. They also look super cute paired with the fleece hoodie!
Bathing Suit – who doesn’t love a hot tub session after a long day out in the snow?! I know I do. I liked the cutest cut out one piece bathing suit from Amazon that you’ll definitely want to add to your cart!
I hope this list helps you prepare and pack efficiently for your next ski trip! Here are all the picks to shop:
