Pack with me: Snowboarding Trip

Hello lovelies, I have been quite quiet about my trip just purely because I have been preparing and too excited. However, I wanted to announce it in this post that I am going on a Skiing trip! Well I will be snowboarding but honestly I could not be happier.

It has been a dream of mine since I was 10 to go on a ski trip. I first learnt on a dry slope about 6 years ago, and did about 3 months of training. I have also been on an indoor slope for practice as well fairly recently.

Therefore, I thought it would be cool to let you guys know the essentials to take for a ski trip in case you are thinking about it! Here is my

pack with me!

Toiletries

  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Body wash
  • Pads/tampons *if needed
  • Medication
  • First Aid kit
  • Shavers
  • Make-up
  • Sun cream *its not a Spain holiday but when the sun is out it can be hot!
  • Tissues *handy when on the slope.

Gear

  • Ski jacket *you can hire but I would recommend taking one.
  • Ski trousers
  • Helmet *this you can hire as well but I have my own.
  • Goggles *there are many different ones so make sure to research!
  • Thermals *depending on how cold it is and where you go.
  • Jeans/trousers/clothes for the evening or when you are not skiing.
  • Ski socks
  • Gloves
  • Neck warmer/scarves
  • Underwear/swim stuff if there is a pool.
  • Backpack *this is good for taking with you whilst skiing/snowboarding, to carry snacks or water etc.
  • Jumpers *great for wearing over your thermals and under your ski jacket- depending on how cold it is.
  • Board/skis *if advanced something to take but for a beginner then just hire.
  • Ski boots *again just hire if you are a beginner.
  • Walking boots *for the times that you may not ski and in the evening it’s good to take some outdoor shoes/boots.
  • Hats
  • Pjs

Other

  • Phone charger/adapter *depending on where you go.
  • Headphones

Also don’t forget to take your spending money! But don’t forget that the hotel/where you stay may take a charge when you get there, so have some extra for that just incase!

Well there you have it, these are the essentials that I will be taking with me. There might be something I have forgotten, but there are loads of videos and resources out there to help you when going on a ski holiday for the first time!

Have you ever been skiing?

Thanks for reading, and to let you know there will be no posts next week as I am away!

  1. I hope you enjoy snowboarding and I hope the snow is good! I luckily live close to a ski resort so I’ve never needed to pack more than for the day but I think it’d be awesome to travel to one I’ve never been to.
