What to Pack for Your Ski Holiday

The season is almost upon us and a few ski resorts across the Alps, namely Kitzbuhel, Tignes, Hintertux and even more, are already open.   It won’t be long until you’ll be jetting off to the Alps or even further and hitting the slopes.

An issue that often crops up with the staff here and plenty of other skiers is forgetting to pack something and only realising when it’s too late, whether that something large or small, we’re all guilty of being forgetful sometimes.

Luckily for you, we’ve done the forgetting for you and we at Ski-Lifts have come up with a collaborative ski and snowboard essentials list for your holiday this winter.

Download a handy checklist below that you can print off, so you never forget anything from your ski holiday packing list again!
