What to Pack for Your Ski Holiday

An issue that often crops up with the staff here and plenty of other skiers is forgetting to pack something and only realising it when it’s too late, whether that’s 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 essential checklist for your holiday this ski season.

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

Your ski trip packing list:

Ski/snowboarding clothing

1-icon Waterproof breathable jacket (our partners at Absolute Snow have you covered)

2-icon Waterproof mittens (trust me, they’re warmer than gloves)

3-ICON Hand-warmers (for when it’s blisteringly cold)

4-icon Goggles + wipes (Save 10% with Panda Optics with code SKILIFTS1020)

5-icon Neckwarmer

On the slopes

1-icon Avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel (for those who are going off-piste)

2-icon Skis or snowboard (or arrange ski hire)

3-ICON Boots

4-icon Ski poles

5-icon Multitool (for repairs or adjustments, don’t be caught out on the slopes!)

6-icon Iron, wax and a scraper

Other useful stuff
