The Best Packing List For Your Snowy Vacation

Anyone who is passionate about seeing the world will tell you the importance of experiencing a cold climate. Whether you have found a Ski House Rental and are venturing out on the slopes, or jetting off to a snowy city with a frozen lake to ice skate on, you will need to have the right items packed in your case to ensure you have the best time you possibly can. It is imperative you stay warm and protect your skin from the harsh climate to stay healthy for the duration of your trip. Here are some essential packing tips for your snowy-trip-case to keep you comfortable and cozy in the sub-zero temperatures.

Pack Your Hand Luggage Ready For Your Arrival

You will not want to wear multiple layers on the plane, as you may overheat and become uncomfortable - especially if it's going to be a long journey - and keeping track of lots of different layers in the airport rush always proves difficult. Make sure you have the essentials like a woolly hat, scarf, gloves and an extra jumper for when getting off of the plane. You don’t want to wait until your luggage appears on the conveyor belt at baggage reclaim to wrap up in your winter warmers if the cold takes you by surprise.

More Layers Than You Think

Nothing can prepare you for the feeling of -17 degrees Celsius, especially when in that low of a temperature for a prolonged period of time. You may find you need to add layers the longer you are outside, and you don’t want to miss out on precious time on your trip by continuously having to return to your room due to being too cold. Thermals, roll necks, wool jumpers, and hoodies that can be layered underneath your jacket will be your best friends. Try not to neglect the bottom half of your body either. Whilst filling up your case with lots of jumpers and a top quality waterproof ski jacket, make sure you have layer-suitable tights, leggings, thermals and trousers, especially if your jacket only comes to your waist. It is important that you make sure you are keeping your legs as warm as possible. Some jackets will come with waterproof trousers, and it is highly recommended that you pack both for a snowy trip.

Thermal Sleepwear And Slippers

So you’ve covered packing for the daytime, but temperatures typically tend to drop at night. Although you will have heating in the room you’re staying in, you will want to have nightwear that keeps you toasty so you can get a good night’s sleep. You also don’t want to be secluded from the common area antics with friends and family if it’s too cold out of underneath your duvet. So be sure to pack a good quality pair of pajamas - and slippers! You don’t want the cold floor to be a shock when you get up to go to the loo in the middle of the night, or breakfast in the morning.

Hopefully, this has given you some ideas for items that should take priority over others to maximize the room in your suitcase. If you are heading off on a winter break, have a fantastic time.
