Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, it’s always hard trying to figure out what to pack when you go skiing. Your suitcase depends on you, the country you’re visiting, and the resort you’re booked with. There is no need to worry as we having the ultimate packing list for your skiing holiday:
SKIING: THE ULTIMATE PACKING LIST- CLOTHING
- Waterproof breathable jacket.
- Waterproof breathable salopettes.
- Waterproof, insulated ski gloves.
- Helmet (either bought or rented).
- Fleece or merino scarf.
- Balaclava- don’t worry about looking like a bandit, you won’t really care when conditions are extremely cold!
- Thick ski socks.
- Goggles- these can’t be bought rented at resorts so it’s a good idea to buy them before your trip!

SKIING: THE ULTIMATE PACKING LIST- ON THE MOUNTAIN
- Small rucksack – to carry everything you need with you throughout the day.

In the evenings, it is best to wear what you are comfortable in, but make sure you are also wrapped up warm!
- Snow boots or walking boots are useful as they prevent you from slipping over. You can be good quality ones from around £25, depending on where your holiday is.
- Slippers- these are particularly useful if you’re staying in a chalet or self-catering accommodation.
- Swimming costumes or trunks to make use of any hot tubs or swimming pools.
- Normal gloves.
SKIING: THE ULTIMATE PACKING LIST- OTHER IMPORTANT STUFF
- Insurance details and passports.
