With the cold weather arriving and snow starting to fall, the season for skiing and snowboarding has begun! One of the most popular vacations in the winter involves these winter sports, and it’s important to be prepared for everything a skiing trip requires. That’s why we have put together a list of the essentials you’ll need to hit the slopes and have a great winter adventure in the snow!
Skiing and Snowboarding Equipment
This one is obvious, as you won’t be able to take to the hills without your equipment! Including your skis or snowboard, boots, poles, helmet and more, make a checklist of all the equipment you wear while on the slopes to ensure that you don’t leave any piece behind.
Goggles or Sunglasses
While the sun itself isn’t always a problem while skiing, the bright white snow can often be very harsh on the eyes. Packing a pair of ski goggles or sunglasses will help to keep your eyes relaxed and focus on the skiing rather than trying to keep your eyes from squinting.
The winter cold can be tough on your lips as the cool air tends to dry them out much more quickly than usual. Packing a tube of lip balm will help to keep your lips from drying out and cracking, saving you from the uncomfortable feeling while on your trip. Lip balm tubes are also small and easy to carry with you, making them simple to pack and available whenever you need them!
Hand and Foot Warmers
Two of the easiest parts of your body to quickly become cold are your hands and your feet. That’s why packing adhesive warmers will help to keep these problem areas warm and keep you comfortable on the hills. No matter the weather, warmers will allow you stay out skiing longer without having to end your session due to freezing hands and feet!
