Packing Guide

Ski Trip Packing Guide 2020

The following list may be used as a general packing guide.

Everyone will be expected to shower and change before the evening meal. Apres ski wear is usually very casual and warm clothes will be needed for any evening activities, such as bowling, held outdoors away from the hotel.

All items that might be needed during the course of the journey must be packed into one small bag and taken on to the coach as hand luggage. This should include a pair of ski socks as on arrival in resort we usually go straight to our ski fit for our boots and skis. As we will be travelling for a long period, it might be wise to put a small towel, soap, toothbrush and paste into the hand luggage.
