Packing for Your Ski/Snowboard Vacation
To help in your planning & preparation for your trip to Canyons Resort this winter,
here’s a quick overview on packing for your vacation. We’ve also include a quick
check-list of items to use as you pack for your vacation.
SKI / SNOWBOARD CLOTHING:
To make sure that you don't forget anything, pack items in the order that you usually wear them.Pack your base layer (your long underwear). Then pack your mid layer (a sweater or turtleneck). Don't forget your insulating layer (a fleece jacket), and make sure you pack your jacket and pants. How much to pack depends on how long your vacation is, but one or two base and mid-layers per two days should be fine.
SKI / SNOWBOARD ACCESSORIES:
First, pack your socks - bring at least two pairs. Bring your helmet or your hat, two pairs of gloves or mittens, a neck gaiter, and goggles. Don't forget smaller items, like hand warmers, sunscreen and lip balm.
Pack the clothing that you plan on wearing when you're not on the slopes. While what clothing you pack depends on your preferences and where you plan to go, packing warm clothing is always a good idea. However, don't forget a good pair of boots. You may have to do a lot of walking, and you want your feet to be stable on slush or ice and stay warm.
Next, you'll be packing your ski / snowboard equipment, but it's time to make a decision. Are you planning on renting or bringing your own equipment? If you're flying, a ski / board bag is a good idea. This holds your skis or board and keeps them protected on the flight. A boot bag will hold your boots. Make sure your bags are clearly labeled with your name, home phone number, and cell phone number.
TICKETS / DOCUMENTS:
If you pre-purchased lift tickets, lessons, or rentals, make sure you have the necessary piece of paper with you - you don't want to forget that! Before you leave, make sure that you have your plane tickets and your hotel reservations.
