The travel industry have made an abundant amount of changes over the years to make booking a holiday as stress free as possible. We can now check in on line, print our own boarding passes, grab our passports and simply go. This leaves us more time to think about what other preparations we need to make. When it comes to a family skiing holiday there are many things to think about. We have compiled a handy checklist to make sure you arrive at your destination fully equipped and raring to go.
- The right clothing is crucial for everyone. You will need warm hats/beanies, goggles, sunglasses, neck warmers, thermal tops and bottoms, fleece, a waterproof ski jacket and trousers, waterproof gloves/mittens and ski socks. Layering up is the best option. You can buy good quality clothing that will keep you toasty but won’t bulk you out. The last thing you want is to feel like a yeti when you are sashaying down the slopes and if you children feel restricted in any way then it will make it much harder for them to adapt too.
- Then of course you will need to pack some off piste essentials for the après ski, jeans, t-shirts, a couple of fleeces and some normal boots should do the job nicely.
- Pack some high energy snack bars to put into your day bag, they will stop everyone in the family flagging, after all skiing burns a lot of calories so you will need to top up those vitality levels.
- A camera is a must, there will be many special moments to capture. Don’t forget a travel adapter and charger.
- Hand warmers and boot warmers are a luxurious essential.
- Deep heat or other muscle relief equivalents area must too, they will take the edge off those aching muscles after a hard days skiing.
